COMMUNITY SERVICE

Bar & Gavel members are proud to be Miami Law ambassadors, creating bridges, relationships, and opportunities with others and for others.

Bar & Gavel volunteers with local and UM organizations, including undergrad Pre-Law Council, UM Homecoming, Gandhi Day of Service, Miami Rescue Mission, the running community and KidSide (through Race Judicata), Miami Law student orgs and after school programs (through Canes Carnival), Nova Law School, St. Thomas Law School, FIU Law School, Camp Boggy Creek, Overtown Youth Center, Zoo Miami, Empowered Youth, and George Washington Carver Elementary School.

In Spring 2013, we co-sponsored the Dean's Cup Community Challenge Walk The Dog Walk-a-Thon! This was a joint collaboration between Miami Law and the Miller School of Medicine and co-sponsored by Bar & Gavel, the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, and Themis Bar Review. Proceeds benefited The Seeing Eye, the oldest existing guide dog school in the world. The walk-a-thon paired participants with a canine companion. The majority of the participants brought their own dogs.

B&G kicked off the Spring 2014 semester with a Day of Service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  B&G members served alongside volunteers with HandsOn Miami at Arch Creek Elementary School to enhance the school's educational and instructional environments, including the creation of an outdoor classroom! 

B&G had another successful Day of Service in Spring 2015 honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through volunteering with City Year Miami's beautification of Brownsville Middle School.
