ANNOUNCEMENTS

ATTENTION FIRST YEAR STUDENTS:  This week 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:

Class of 2006 J.D. & LL. M. Students:  Dean Toni Massaro and the Law School Faculty & Administration invite you to join them for the GRADUATION CELEBRATION LUNCHEON on April 6 from 12:30 - 2:30 p.m. at the Arizona Inn. Your Class Photo will be taken promptly after luncheon. Meet at the College by the Law School Sculpture next to Room 140 at 2:45 p.m. Please RSVP by March 30 by emailing kym.olsen@law.arizona.edu.

The Public Interest Law Organization would like to invite all to their next scheduled meeting on Thursday, March 23 at 12:20 p.m. in Room 122. We will discuss the Fellowship, fundraisers, and the lecture series. Hope to see you there!

Hold on to your hats! The writing fellows will be hosting Citation Jeopardy on Tuesday, March 21, at 3:00 p.m. in Room 146. Citation Jeopardy will pit small section against small section. Prizes will be awarded. Free food will be eaten. Fun will be had. It might even be educational, who knows? First-year students are urged to come to cheer on their small sections. All faculty, staff, and students are invited. We will have some “poll the audience” questions, so everyone will get a chance to participate. For more information, contact Professor Rabe.

Come watch the Fegtly Moot Court arguments! The Fegtly Moot Court Semi-Finals take place this Friday, March 24, at 10:30 a.m. in Rooms 104 and 106. The Finals are Friday at 2:30 p.m. in Room 106.

North American Consortium on Legal Education. There are opportunities for a limited number of JD students to participate in the exchange program of the North American Consortium on Legal Education (NACLE). The participating law schools are all excellent:  McGill in Montreal, Quebec; Dalhousie in Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Ottawa in Ottawa. The best seasons for all three are probably fall, unless you are a skier or skater, in which case McGill and Ottawa are attractive for the winter. Montreal is one of the world’s truly great cities. If you are starved for water (e.g., an ocean) and trees, Halifax is a very pleasant small city. Canada’s capital, Ottawa, is slightly larger than Tucson, with a large high-tech industrial sector and access to some of the most beautiful parks and wilderness anywhere. The credits are fully transferable. Anyone with interest in a one semester exchange for 2006 - 2007 should contact Prof. David Gantz ASAP. Candidates must be in good standing at Arizona, with a GPA of at least 2.5.

Bringing Technology to Market Continuing Legal Education Seminar. Participants at the "Bringing Technology to Market" seminar at the College of Law will learn about current issues and trends in delivering new products to consumers. The pace of discovery and invention, coupled with the growing importance of international markets, makes the introduction of new products a more complex and challenging proposition. Businesses and lawyers must deal with a constantly changing array of issues that have national - and even international - import. Panelists include Professor of Law John F. Duffy, George Washington University Law School; Donald M. Whiteside, Vice President, Intel Corporation; Paul A. Kirchoff, Founder and CEO, SaleAMP, Inc.; and Mark D. Tucker, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Ventana Medical Systems, Inc. The seminar will be held Monday, March 27, 2006, 1:00 - 2:30 p.m., in Ares Auditorium. Students are welcome to attend. Please RSVP by March 25 by calling 626-1629.

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 on Martha Fenn’s office door, Rm. 205. Nominations are due on Friday, March 24. For more information, please contact Martha Fenn at fenn@law.arizona.edu.

S. THOMAS CHANDLER PUBLIC SERVICE AWARD.  The S. Thomas Chandler Public Service Award was established to assist graduating law students who will be entering public sector or public interest work upon graduation. For 2005 - 2006, one to three awards of $2,000 to $6,000 each will be made to third-year students enrolled in the Rogers College of Law. The Chandler Public Service Award Committee will select the recipients based upon the following criteria:  past and/or current public service activities, future plans for public sector/public interest work, and financial need. Application materials are attached and are available in Room 118. Deadline:  Completed applications must be returned to Room 118 by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 22, 2006.

Loan Seminar:  April 14, 2006 (Friday):  Room 146 from 12:15 - 2:00. Students who have borrowed at least one Federal Stafford Loan need to attend. Recent and ongoing changes in laws governing the federal student loan program regarding interest rates; loan consolidation; reconsolidation; grace period after graduation; deferments and forbearances; and new loans available as of July 1, 2006, will be discussed. Do not miss this seminar as there will be no other information provided. The presenter has offered to supply lunch (lots of pizza and soda) as well as door prizes. If you have any questions regarding this seminar, please contact Kim Marlow in Room 118C and at Marlow@law.arizona.edu.
