ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Criminal Law Association is having its first meeting EVER! We will meet on Thursday, October 2, at 12:15 p.m. in Room 140. Bring a lunch and discuss criminal law issues with other interested students.  We will also be discussing the opportunities for police ride-alongs, prison tours and how to improve the criminal law curriculum.

SALDF will hold its second meeting of the semester on Thursday, October 2, in Room 126. We will hold elections and discuss upcoming events. If you are an animal lover or just curious about how the law relates to animals, please join us!

“Law Capades.”  The SBA is hosting "Law Capades" on Tuesday, September 30, 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. at Gateway Ice Center at Speedway and Kolb. The discounted cost is $6.50 for skates & entry.  For more info please contact megan.nielsen@law.arizona.edu.

The National Lawyers Guild will host a talk by longtime Peace and Human Rights Activist Laro Nicol at the College of Law on Tuesday, September 30, from 12:15 to 1:00 in Room 139. Nicol, who has worked extensively with the Phoenix Cop Watch program, a program that assists underprivileged individuals in police-abuse litigation against the Phoenix Police Department, is currently being prosecuted by federal authorities. Acting on an anonymous tip, the federal authorities raided Nicol's house, and discovered potential bomb-making supplies (household items that can be purchased at Wal-Mart) and weapons. Although the authorities found no evidence of ill intent, a federal judge has declared Nicol a "danger to the community," and ordered him to be held without bond. Nicol is currently on house arrest. The National Lawyers Guild invites all to hear his presentation on Tuesday.

Second and Third Year Students:  Don't forget that the deadline for the $1000 AAML Family Law Scholarship application is next Monday, October 6, 2003.  If you have questions, please speak to Professor Barbara Atwood.

The annual Joseph Jenckes Competition, the closing arguments competition between students of the University of Arizona College of Law and the Arizona State University College of Law, sponsored by the Arizona Chapter of the American College of Trial Lawyers, is held every year at one of the Colleges.  Each law school selects two students for the final competition.  This year the final competition against ASU will be held at ASU in the middle of November.  Our law school competition to select our two representatives will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 14 and 15, from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. in Rooms 104 and 106. Please see the sign-up sheet on Professor Mauet’s door (Room 224) for more details.
