Richard Grand Legal Writing Competition.  For the fifth year in a row, Tucson attorney Richard Grand is generously sponsoring a legal writing competition to be held from October 28 to November 7. This competition is only open to students at the Rogers College of Law. All students are eligible to participate. The top five student participants will receive cash prizes of:  First Place - $2000; Second Place - $1000; Third Place - $500; Honorable Mention - $250 each. Brochures will be placed in each student's mailbox the first week of October. We urge interested students to go to one of the two upcoming informational sessions:  Thursday, October 6 or Tuesday, October 11, both from 12:15 to 1:00 p.m. in Rountree Hall, room 102. Attendance at these sessions is highly recommended - but not required - for potential participants. Refreshments will be provided.

Members of the College of Law Community:  Please be advised that on Wednesday, September 28, we will be producing four campus rallies, to be held at selected sites around campus, in order to thank the campus community for its role in Campaign Arizona. Pete Likins, Dick Imwalle, George Davis, Tom Sanders, Janet Bingham, and others will be moving from site to site, in an effort to bring the administration to the campus community, instead of the other way around. We hope you will join us for this celebration. The closest site to the College of Law is the McClelland Hall Atrium. That rally will be held between 10:45 - 11:15 a.m. These will be brief remarks, with refreshments, cheerleaders, music, and a small give-away for attendees. This will be an upbeat event that offers the administration the chance to say thank-you to the faculty, staff and students.
