ANNOUNCEMENTS

ATTENTION FIRST YEAR STUDENTS: During the week immediately following Spring Break your small sections will meet individually to get information on selecting classes for next fall and beyond. You will receive important information about the curriculum, course selections and recommendations, registration, etc. If you cannot attend your small section's meeting, please attend one of the other meetings that week. The schedule is as follows:

Here Comes the Court! The Arizona Court of Appeals (Division 2) will be hold arguments on Wednesday, March 23 in Room 146 here at the College of Law at 2:30. The court will hear one civil and one criminal case. The oral arguments are open to the public, and all are welcome. This is a good opportunity for first-year students to satisfy the oral argument assignment in their legal writing classes. For more information on the court's visit, contact Professor Rabe.

VLP Outstanding Student Award. The Volunteer Lawyer’s Program has honored VLP Advocate Jason Barraza (2L) with the March 2005 Outstanding Law Student Award. Jason has been volunteering with the VLP Advocates since his first semester of law school, when he participated in the Child Support Clinic. The VLP notes that despite the fast-paced nature of the Clinic, Jason was a standout volunteer who consistently demonstrated professional skill in his work and sensitivity to his clients. This semester, Jason was one of three students selected to launch the Guardianship Project, a pilot program that facilitates children’s access to safe shelter, education and necessary medical care. Congratulations to Jason on this well-deserved recognition!

The Law Women’s Association will be having a meeting on Wednesday, March 9 at 12:20 in Room 138. We will be discussing the auction proceeds, the two Spring networking events scheduled with AWLA (Take a Teddy-Bear to Tea and the Wine and Cheese Party), and elections for next year. Please contact ana.himelic@law.arizona.edu if you have any questions.

SALDF Panel Discussion: “How Are Animals Involved in Research at the University of Arizona?” Thursday, March 10, 12:15 - 1:30 p.m., Rm. 146.

The Community Service Board is pleased to announce the rescheduled Community Food Bank Harvesting Project. We will be harvesting oranges, grapefruits, and lemons in 3 orchards near Orange Grove and Oracle. The harvested fruit will be delivered to the Community Food Bank for distribution to families in need. The original date was rained out, so we have rescheduled for Saturday, April 2, from 9:00 a.m. to Noon. We realize that this is the weekend of the 1L write-on competition. Unfortunately, this was the only weekend available for the Community Food Bank. We do encourage 1Ls to take a break from writing to get some fresh air and join us! 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 by Friday, March 25. Family (including children) and friends are welcome to join us!

Andrew Silverman Community Service Awards. In an effort to recognize student community service, each year the Law School honors one student in each class, and one student organization, with the Andrew Silverman Community Service Awards. Nominate yourself or a friend who inspires you through his or her community service. Nomination forms have been sent to you by e-mail. Extra copies are available downstairs in the Student Lounge. Nominations are due on Friday, March 25. For more information, please contact Martha Fenn at fenn@law.arizona.edu.
