The 2014 LL.M. class hosted the International Party on Saturday, February 15, a highly-anticipated annual event in which students, faculty, staff, and family members celebrate the graduate students’ cultural heritage. Decked out in traditional outfits, students shared their favorite culinary treats, which ranged from Taiwanese Boba tea to Swiss chocolates to Indonesian Gado-gado. With full plates and bellies, the crowd gathered to watch performances that included a traditional Maori song, a Chinese folk dance, and an Indian Bollywood dance. View a slideshow of the party on the HLS Student Spotlights Web page.
