The ALBEF Project:  Arizona Law, Business & Economics Forum, www.law.arizona.edu/albef. We now have a new service for students who are interested in law, business & economics. The web site of the ALBEF Project provides research sources for law students who write papers in areas related to business, finance, and economics. The ALBEF Newsletter will summarize relevant news and developments and will provide links to the full stories (with the exception of the Wall Street Journal, all links will be to free sources. Access to links to the WSJ will require a subscription. We obtained student discounts for the WSJ subscriptions. Details on the web site). The ALBEF Newsletter will be distributed to subscribers once a week, starting the weekend of April 8, 2006. You can subscribe to the newsletter at the web site (www.law.arizona.edu/albef). Starting the fall of 2006, the production of the ALBEF Newsletter will rely on the ALBEF Student Board, to be selected from top summer contributors. Instructions for students who wish to contribute entries to the ALBEF Newsletter are on the web site. The ALBEF Newsletter could be particularly valuable for students who wish to deepen their understanding of practical applications of materials studied in business related courses at the College. For questions and comments, email Prof. Orbach (orbach@law.arizona.edu).
