The College of Law has put together a brand new way for fierce in-class discussions to continue in a more intensive setting–Table for Six.

It brings a select professor and five lucky students to share a table at one of the university’s starbucks cafes.

The series of events began in the spring semester of 2015 and has continued since, once or twice a month during fall and spring.

According to Angelique Ortega Fridman, the associate dean for students and assistant professor of legal skills and values at the university’s college of law, the first event of the semester will be on Jan. 21 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Starbucks in Mango.

“This is a way for students to get to know their professors in an informal setting and expand on their in class discussions” said Fridman.

These events were a suggestion from a College of Law alumna, Amber Kornreich, and have been a big hit ever since.

“We are really excited about these sort of events,” said Fridman, “they have been a success for both the students and the professors.”

An email is sent a few days in advance to a student contact list and the first five to respond will secure their spots at the Table for Six. Students who respond after the first five are chosen will be placed on a waiting list.

“We try to make the process as fair as possible,” said Fridman.
