THE Mona Law Society at the University of the West Indies Mona, celebrated Law Week with a slew of activities which started with a church service at Church on the Rock in St Andrew Last Sunday, and culminated with the crowning of Mr and Miss Law. A discussion forum was also a high point of the week's activities as students were addressed by Supreme Court Judge Justice Leighton Pusey and other noted legal minds of the profession.

The week which was celebrated under the theme "Thrive as you Strive" saw students wearing legal or wacky attire to school on Monday.

On Tuesday, the law students participated in a Cultural Explosion in which students from the various year groups showcased their talents in preparing pastries such as potato and cornmeal pudding ,coconut drops, and plantain tarts among others.

On Wednesday, the students were addressed by renowned attorneys-at-law who have excelled in their area of expertise and this assisted the students in better identifying the areas of law they may have an interest in practising. Other activities during the week include a talent competition and a sport day.

Jonathan Burton and Rushell Malcom were crowned Mr and Miss Law and will now act as ambassadors for the student body and undertake outreach projects.

"The executive and sub-committees of the Mona Law Society worked tirelessly to ensure that this year's Law Week was a success and we are pleased that the hard work of the Committee has paid off because the students benefited," said first vice-president of the Law Society Shantal English.
