LAW STUDENT BAILIFFS NEEDED FOR HIGH SCHOOL MOCK TRIAL REGIONAL TOURNAMENT ON MARCH 4th. The Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education and the Young Lawyers of Arizona are looking for University of Arizona law students to participate as bailiffs in this year’s Mock Trial Regional Tournament on March 4, 2006, at the Pima County Superior Court. The state program, which began in 1981, has become a huge success. Local high schools have been active at the nation level of competition because of their intense preparation and dedication to the program. Law student bailiffs are needed to help run the courtroom, help the judges, and enforce time limits. The tournament is on a Saturday and requires an all-day commitment. This is a great opportunity to meet local attorneys and judges, work with great kids, and assist in an excellent program. Food is also provided. If you are interested in participating, or would like to learn more, please contact Adam Bleier, Regional Coordinator, at 319-0785 or adam@bleierlaw.net.

The FAFSA (Free Application for Student Financial Aid) for 2006 - 2007 is available for completion at www.fafsa.ed.gov. To be considered for financial aid for next year, you must apply now so that you meet the March 1, 2006, processing deadline required by the University of Arizona and Rogers College of Law for all scholarships (new and continuing) and for all need-based funds, including work study funds and Stafford Loans. If you have not yet filed your taxes for 2005, complete the FAFSA using estimated figures. When you have filed your income taxes, file a correction to the FAFSA updating the information - the update will not change your original application date. If you filed for the academic year 2005 - 2006, you may file for 2006 - 2007 using the Renewal FAFSA, on which you can update last year’s information (figures and addresses). If you have lost or forgotten your PIN, which is required to file, you can request a duplicate at www.pin.ed.gov. A brochure describing the steps to file a FAFSA or to obtain a PIN is available outside Room 118C in the Financial Services Office.
