LET'S KEEP OUR COLLEGE NEAT:  Budget cuts throughout the University have resulted in fewer custodians and day porters.  Our College has one day porter who is on call throughout campus during the day besides having an assigned area, and two night custodians.  Considering the square footage of our main building, the outside classrooms and the clinics, and the number of persons in the buildings, the custodians and day porters do a good job of keeping our college presentable.  We can all help by picking up after ourselves, throwing wrappers, etc., into trash bins, and making sure we don't leave paper towels and other items on the floors and sink tops in the restrooms.  We can leave the restrooms as we would expect to find them when we walk in.  We can do the same for the classrooms.  No one is available to go into the classrooms between classes to pick up empty bottles or cans and papers from the desks or floors.  Let's all pitch in to make the College a pleasant place to be!

MAINTENANCE REQUESTS:  All requests for maintenance, with the exception of problems within the Library, should be reported to Rosie Gallegos in Room 118 in person, by e-mail (gallegos@law.arizona.edu), by written note or by phone (621-5433).  Ms. Gallegos will then generate a work request to the proper department at Facilities Management to have the issue addressed as needed and will be able to follow up on the request if it is not taken care of in an appropriate time frame.  For problems within the library, contact Bonnie Schlichting in Room 109D, e-mail (bonnie.schlichting@law.arizona.edu), phone (621-1547).

Richard Grand Legal Writing Competition: This week, Professor Rabe will conduct two lunchtime information sessions to discuss the Grand Writing Competition.  A light lunch from Baggins will be served.  The first session will be on Thursday, October 10, at 12:15 in the Sullivan Room; the second session will be on Friday, October 11, at 12:15 in Room 126.  If you are interested in the Competition and would like more information, please join us.  Attendance at this information session is not at all required in order to participate in the Competition.  The prizes are big; the problem is interesting.  This year's fact situation - which is set in Arizona - involves a question of criminal law that raises important humanitarian and border-security concerns.   The Competition will run from Oct. 18 to Oct. 28.  The page limit is ten pages, double-spaced.  The problem involves no research:  all cases, statutes, and other source materials will be provided in the packet.  The writing will be judged for accuracy, brevity, clarity, and persuasiveness.  For more information, visit the College of Law's web site.  Please also feel free to contact Professor Rabe.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE SECTION BOOK SCHOLARSHIP.  The James E. Rogers College of Law is pleased to announce the availability of a scholarship from the Criminal Justice Section Book Scholarship Fund, which was established by the Criminal Justice Section of the State Bar of Arizona in 1994 to recognize one or more second- or third-year law students for achievement in the area of criminal justice.  The Criminal Justice Section Book Scholarship Fund will provide one or more scholarships for the 2002 - 2003 academic year.  Selection will be based upon the following criteria:  academic achievements in general; specific achievements in the area of criminal justice regarding class work, papers, clinics, clerkships, internships or other related experiences; future plans regarding work in the criminal justice system; explanation of source of interest in this area of the law; and statement of financial need.  A committee of representatives of the Criminal Justice Section of the State Bar will select the recipient or recipients based upon a review of written application materials as well as interviews with selected applicants if necessary.  Applications are now available in Room 118.  Deadline for return of completed applications:  October 18, 2002.

MUNGER PRIZE FOR SCHOLARS IN INTERNATIONAL AND BUSINESS LAW.  The Munger Prize for Scholars in International and Business Law is awarded annually to a student based upon outstanding scholarship and enduring achievement in the areas of international and business law.  Enrolled law students and post-graduate students may apply for consideration for this award, which was made possible through the generosity of John F. and Roseann Munger, by submitting a letter of application, a resume, a transcript and two letters of reference to the Financial Services Office, Room 118 of the College.  Prize: $1,000.  Deadline for receipt of applications - November 1, 2002, at 5:00 P.M.  The recipient will be chosen by a committee composed of Dean Massaro, Professor Kozolchyk, Professor Gantz, and Mr. Munger.
