ANNOUNCEMENTS

Meet the Faculty! This week we will have three noontime “Meet the Faculty” panels. The idea behind the panels is to introduce students (especially 1Ls) to the faculty and give the faculty a chance to talk about themselves a bit. We hope that this will be helpful when you are selecting courses for next fall. The schedule of panels is as follows:

Each professor on the panel will talk for a few minutes, and then we will open things up for questions. Please feel free to bring your lunch. Hope to see you there!

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 ANNE CAPPS AND JAMES BOYER MEMORIAL STUDENT TRAVEL FUND CREATED BY THE GRADUATES OF THE CLASS OF 2001 OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA ROGERS COLLEGE OF LAW. In memory of their classmates Anne Capps and James Boyer, the Members of the Class of 2001 of The University of Arizona Rogers College of Law have established an endowment to provide funding for costs associated with travel to/from and registration for academic conferences. The award will be made to an enrolled law student who is planning to attend the academic conference sometime during the student’s second or third year of law school. Students may only apply for funding for a future conference, not for one that the student has already attended. Applicants must submit a personal statement addressing the following:  why the conference interests the applicant; how the information being presented at the conference fits into the applicant’s plans following graduation from law school; and how the applicant plans to cover the remaining costs associated with attending the conference. Applicants are encouraged to submit additional information regarding their situation or special circumstances which would assist the committee in making its selection. Deadline:  Completed applications must be returned to Room 118 by 5:00 p.m. on April 7, 2006.
