And it turns out that Games Night was a blast! All jokes aside, we'd like to welcome our newest executives: Raphael Padolina and Ben Fickling, who will be serving as second and third year representative, respectively. A great big thank you to all who ran!
It was really great meeting everyone and we hope to see even more of the ES&LSA at our next event - which you will hear about fairly soon, so stay tuned...
A brand new year is among us and the ES&LSA is ready to get things in full swing! Next Thursday, September 24th, come out to the Trinity College Junior Common Room, for our annual Games Night! This event will also feature the association's by-elections, for the positions of second and third year representative.
Whether you're running for a position or not, it's a great opportunity to meet fellow ES&L students, play games, and grab a bite to eat.
If you're interested in becoming involved in the Ethics, Society & Law Students' Association, this is your chance! Just be prepared to give a brief statement of interest - 45 seconds to a minute, please. There are a few technicalities: you must be in the year of study that you are running for, as well as enrolled in the Ethics, Society and Law program.
