UI law students host 'Law Law Palooza' band charity event March 6

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa law students will take a respite from a week's worth of studies Saturday, March 6 opting for fun and frolic as they host this year's "Law Law Palooza" fundraising event.

Law Law Palooza is open to the public and will be from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m. Saturday, March 6 at the Que Bar, 211 Iowa Ave., Iowa City.

Tickets are $5 at the door.

The annual event, which takes its name from the touring rock'n'roll musical festival "Lalapalooza," features local bands, some made up of UI law students and faculty, says second-year law student and organizer Marty Arnott.

Arnott says he hopes the event raises $1,500 for the UI chapter of the Equal Justice Foundation, a program that provides money for students who work free for persons or an agency that can't afford to pay for a lawyer's services. Last year's event raised roughly $1,100, Arnott says.

We will give away as much as $600 in door prizes, and all proceeds will go to the Equal Justice Foundation, Arnott says.

For more information, contact the UI chapter of the Equal Justice Foundation at (319) 335-9052, or contact Marty Arnott at (319) 353-4733.
