ANNOUNCEMENTS

STUDENT ENRICHMENT FORUMS. This semester the College of Law will offer a series of Student Enrichment Forums in which professors give lunchtime presentations about areas of current interest in their work.  Each forum will take place in the Sullivan Room from 12:15 - 1:00 p.m., and pizza and drinks will be provided.  Space is limited to 25 students per forum, so sign up early for forums you would like to attend. To sign up, sign your name on the list outside Martha Fenn’s office (Rm. 238), or e-mail her (fenn@law.arizona.edu) with the forum you would like to attend.  (Because we are not sure what the response will be, we are asking that for now you sign up for no more than 2 forums.)  The schedule is as follows:

The American Constitution Society (ACS) presents “Beyond the Holdings:  Implications of Recent Supreme Court Decisions.”  The event will begin at 3:00 p.m., Monday, September 23 and will be held in Room 146.  A reception will follow.  Refreshments will be served at the reception.  The event will consist of a panel discussion by distinguished jurists and constitutional law scholars.  This will be an opportunity to discuss the impact of recent decisions by the Rehnquist Court on our community and our nation.  The public is welcome.

The Federalist Society will be meeting on Wednesday, September 25 at 12:15 p.m. in Room 138 to discuss upcoming events.  ALL are welcome!

Students, faculty, administrators and staff are invited to volunteer for the September Community Service Board Project on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28.  We will be working at the Community Food Bank to assemble emergency food boxes.  The completed boxes will be given to needy Tucson families and to non-profit programs for distribution in the community.  The food bank is currently running short on food and volunteers; this will be a great chance to help out an organization that has consistently provided a great service to our city.  We will meet in the main lobby of the law school at 8:15 a.m. and then head to the food bank, where we will work from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  If you would like to join us, please e-mail Martha Fenn at fenn@law.arizona.edu or sign up on the sheet posted in the law school lobby.  Space is limited, so please sign up early.

PMBR Information.  Shanna Raymond, company representative for PMBR bar review course, will be here on Tuesday, September 24, to answer questions about the bar review course, how it differs from and is complementary to BarBri, etc.  She will also be presenting a free Bar Information Lecture at 12:15 p.m. in Room 146.  All students and faculty are welcome.
