Halloween ‘Spooktacular’ Surprises for Students with Keiki at Law School

October 31, 2012

        Little spooks and goblins - children of law students, faculty,
and staff at the William S. Richardson School of Law – are in for a special Halloween treat Wednesday, Oct. 31 when faculty and administrators open their offices for a  ‘Spooktacular’ Trick-Or-Treat walk through.
        Law professors have been known to appear in outlandish costumes to delight the little ones, and this year promises to be no exception.
         The Halloween party, sponsored by the Students With Keiki Support group, is an annual event, and one of many that create a feeling of ‘ohana at the Law School. This camaraderie, which is rare in legal education, has been a strong draw for international students and remains one of Richardson’s great strengths.
         “Students, faculty, and staff take great pleasure in hosting the Halloween event,” said Liam Skilling, director of the Evening Part-time Division and faculty adviser for the SWK Support group. “Ironically, the event makes the Law School seem more welcoming and less scary to the children. The kids can see that the Law School has a sense of fun.”
        The Trick-or-Treat walk through is scheduled to begin at 3:15 p.m. as students and families gather in the ‘Ewa end of the first floor Courtyard. After the walk through, costumed keiki are invited to end up on the library lanai for story time, games, and treats.
         All students, faculty, and staff  – with or without keiki – are invited to join in the festivities!
