College of Law 'Fun Run' is Saturday

April 16, 2013

The University of Wyoming College of Law‘s “3.1 Fun Run” Saturday, April 20, will help this year’s graduating class fund a gift to the college.

Registration starts at 8 a.m. at the College of Law, with the race beginning at 9 a.m. The cost is $20 and the race is open to the public. Proceeds from the run will support the John M. Burman Fund for Clinical Education. Partial proceeds also will be donated to a charitable fund designated by the Laramie Fire Department.

UW College of Law student  Courtney Gilbert says there is a reason for the name of the event, “3.1 Fun Run.”

“Lawyers are governed by rules of professional responsibility. Rule 3.1 requires that lawyers have a good-faith basis for bringing a lawsuit that is not frivolous,” she says. “In other words, lawyers should not bring a case unless they have a basis for believing they can succeed. Because a 5K is 3.1 miles, we thought that tying in this rule with the race would be fun and has led to our slogan, ‘Don't start unless you have a good-faith basis for believing you can finish.’”
