More than 100 alumni and guests attended the Law School's inaugural salsa and casino night, "A Night in Havana," on Friday, February 25, 2011. The evening included lively and spirited dancing with music by Salsa del Soul, delicious Latin-influenced foods, casino games, and a poker tournament.

Alumni Khary Hornsby (’05) and Nadia Hasan (’06) led the informal salsa dancing lessons. Dean David Wippman made it to the final table of the high-stakes hold 'em poker tournament only to be knocked out by 1L Christopher Bova. The final two players were Adam Hansen (’08) and Ryan Kaess (’99), with Hansen emerging as the inaugural Night in Havana poker tournament winner.
