Capacity is somewhat limited, so to ensure that law school students who want to attend can, each law school student is currently limited to two (2) dates. If people want extra tickets for additional dates, a lottery at a later date will take place. When you purchase tickets you will be required to enter your date(s) name(s) and YOU, the law student, will be held responsible for any destruction/problems caused by your date. If your date is required to leave, as determined by security, you must leave with them.
Please note that weapons and replicas of weapons will not be allowed in the event, as requested by security. Many local bars are also implementing similar rules.
Business students may also purchase a ticket through our link. Please purchase your specified ticket or you will be refunded and not guaranteed admittance.
