The Jenckes Competition is our annual closing argument competition against ASU, sponsored by the American College of Trial lawyers. Our preliminary competition (to select the students who will represent our law college) will be held on October 11 and 12. All students who have, or are presently taking, Basic Trial Advocacy are encouraged to participate. The competition involves giving a closing argument in a personal injury case. Information about the competition and the signup sheet is posted on professor Mauet’s door (Room 224). A copy of the problem can be obtained from professor Mauet. The top three students will receive cash prizes, and the top two students will represent the law college in the final competition against ASU. You will find the competition both fun and a good learning experience!

Course Outlining Presentation.  Our two senior writing fellows, Andy Flagg and Matt Gray, will be giving a presentation on course outlining on Tuesday, September 27 from 12:15 - 1:05 p.m. in Room 140. Many students prepare outlines of their law school courses. They use these outlines to study for their final exams. You can find materials on course outlining in numerous places:  on the web, in books, in study guides, etc. If you have any questions about course outlining - and if you would like to hear Matt and Andy's perspective on the topic - please join them for a brown bag presentation on Tuesday.

The Admissions Office is hosting an OPEN HOUSE next Wednesday, September 28, 2005, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Registration is in Lobby and event in Rm. 146. Please encourage anyone interested in attending law school to join our faculty, staff, and students! Those attending will learn about the Admissions Process, Financial Aid, and Life in Law School.

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.
