And often the work they do benefits people other than themselves. Like the annual auction by Mercer's Association of Women Law Students that raises thousands of dollars each year for local charities. Or the annual scholarship funds raised each year by Mercer's Black Law Students Association to support local high school students aspiring to become lawyers. Or the conservation and recycling efforts by the Environmental Law Society to help promote sustainable living.
With more than two dozen student organizations, the list of student activities is extensive: from countless guest lecturers to charity events to black-tie and gown socials.
