ANNOUNCEMENTS

All students and faculty are invited to attend a conference, “Comparative Law in the Twenty-First Century,” at the University Marriott Friday, April 8, and the morning of April 9. Four panels of distinguished academics and practitioners will discuss comparative issues in intellectual property law, public law, commercial law, and international trade law. Sir Nicholas Lyell, a former U.K. attorney general and Member of Parliament, will speak at the Friday lunch on “Security, Justice and Liberty in a Free Society.” There is no fee for members of the law school community, but attendees should register with Donna Ream either by email (ream@law.arizona.edu) or with forms provided by the Development Office. Continental breakfasts and the lunch on Friday are included with registration. This is a great opportunity for students interested in any of these legal fields, or in international and comparative law in general, to learn more about the subject from some of the world's leading experts. Additional information is available on the College of Law website, www.law.arizona.edu/events/cltcintro.cfm.

Anytime between now and the end of spring classes - Tuesday, April 27 - drop off your clean, new or gently used items in the box in the lobby that features a picture of a dog and a cat.
