It started in 1939…in Judge Bird’s orange grove during the first full moon in February when the azaleas were in bloom. Florida hand-grenades, a bonfire, oysters and ham began the tradition which has continued for 76 years. It has been said that the more things change, the more they stay the same. One thing about the Oyster Roast has never changed…the camaraderie and fellowship have never gone out of style!
If you are interested in practicing in the Clearwater/Pinellas County area and would like to network and meet potential employers, colleagues and judges, the students at Miami University School of Law have been invited to participate in the 76th Annual Clearwater Bar Association’s Oyster Roast as a student volunteer.
The Oyster Roast is an event held annually by the Clearwater Bar Association where local attorneys and judges put aside the adversarial process, “kick off their shoes,” and enjoy food and drinks from local vendors. In addition to being a great time, it can be a unique opportunity for law students to socialize with practicing attorneys and judges.
This year, as they have in the past, they are inviting law students to attend for FREE (yes, free!) if they assist with the cleanup process. There are a limited number of volunteer spots available, so if this is something that you are interested in participating in, please contact Cody Emerson as quickly as possible. The volunteer spots will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Please include the following in your email:
1. Name, address, and phone number;
2. Your law school;
3. Are you a student-member of the Clearwater Bar Association? (We encourage all student-volunteers to sign up for the Clearwater Bar Association. There is not a membership fee for student-members and this is a great way to connect with the local legal community);
4. Are you available for cleanup on:
a. The night of the Oyster Roast (Saturday, March 28, 2015 4:00-9:00 p.m.);
b. The morning after the Oyster Roast (Sunday, March 29, 2015, 10 a.m.-Noon); or
Please only offer to volunteer for time slots if you are genuinely able to attend.
