2014-2015 Law Parents & Partners Association Co-Chairs

The Honorable Bertila Soto, JD ’89 and Maria Shohat, Esq.

The Law Parents and Partners Association (LPPA) is an organization through which parents and partners can make a tangible difference in the lives of our students.

Just as your son/daughter/spouse/partner has become enmeshed in law school, your life too has been engulfed by the law school experience. We encourage you to become involved in it as well by becoming a member of the LPPA.


There are ways in which your support directly benefits our students and makes an immediate difference in our students' lives:

  • The Law Parents & Partners Association provides refreshments for incoming students during Orientation—this is a great opportunity to welcome the students and help them in their transition to law school.
  • LPPA members also volunteer to open their homes to our out-of-town students for home-cooked meals and special holiday celebrations.
  • LPPA hosts an annual Welcome Reception for parents and partners of incoming law students, thereby providing an opportunity for new and "seasoned" parents and partners to meet with our faculty and administrators.

We seek to enhance the quality of student life at our School of Law, and to support and recognize the leadership, service and collaborative initiatives of our students.

You can make a direct and immediate difference in our students' lives, simply by joining the Law Parents & Partners Association.
