Performance Art (and Other Pictures from HRP Orientation)

Posted by Cara Solomon

Here’s a Friday afternoon treat for you: an iconic image from the law school experience.

a textbook, a bare candy wrapper, and some pens sit at a desk. in front of the desk there is a tent card that reads, "please do not remove my stuff. I am in the next class. thank you"

When Fernando spotted this display at our recent HRP Orientation, he rightly described it as a piece of performance art—except, of course, that it wasn’t.

Below are some other images from the event. Apologies in advance for the poor picture quality, and a belated thanks to all who came, learned, and ate. We were so happy to have you there.

Ana Lise Feliciano Hansen and James Tager, co-presidents of HLS Advocates for Human Rights, speak with a student about the group’s work. My bet is that James is saying something odd here. Hence, the laugh.
