ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Pima County Attorney’s Office and the Law, Criminal Justice and Security Program are sponsoring a panel in recognition of Crime Victim's Week. The panel takes place today, Monday, April 24, 12:15 - 1:40 p.m. in Room 146. Barbara LaWall will open the event, and prosecutors, advocates and victims will talk. Food will be provided.

The Gonzales-Villareal BRIDGE/Tutorial Reception will be held today, Monday, April 24, 2006, at 4:30 p.m. in the Atrium. All students who have participated in BRIDGE as attendees or TAs are welcome to come. Also, all tutorial tutors are welcome to come. Mr. Gonzales, whose contributions make the BRIDGE and tutorial programs possible, will be present to recognize some of our graduating 3Ls for their outstanding efforts. Free food (not pizza!) will be provided!

Extended Law Library Hours during Finals:  The law library will stay open until 11:45 p.m. on Friday, April 28, Saturday, April 29, Friday, May 5, and Saturday, May 6. The library will open at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 30, and Sunday, May 7.

Intermediate Legal Research a/k/a Legal Research Bootcamp. Once again this spring, the librarians from the Law Library will be teaming up to teach an intensive legal research course. Intermediate Legal Research (fondly referred to as Legal Research Bootcamp) will take place this year from May 15 - May 19, 2006. It will provide “refresher” training in using primary and secondary legal materials and offer more detailed training in administrative law, legislative history research, and the use of legal practice materials. The course will also provide extensive WESTLAW, LEXIS, and Internet research training. This one credit, pass/fail course will be completed in just five days. Students should expect to be in class or in the library completing exercises each day from about 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (with appropriate breaks and time for lunch). This is a very “hands-on” class with much of the day taken up researching in the library and online under the guidance of librarians. A tentative schedule will be available in mid-March. The official course designation is LAW 697A - INTERMED LEGAL RESEARCH, and it is listed on the University’s online schedule of classes. Students with questions about the course may contact Shaun Esposito, Head of Public Services, Library Rm. 109A, shaun.esposito@law.arizona.edu, 520-626-5551.

FINANCIAL AID ALERT. Kim Marlow will be out of the office for the next three months. Although we will all miss her presence and support in the financial aid office, we will make every effort to ensure that your financial aid needs are met in a timely manner. In her absence, her e-mail is being monitored and questions redirected to the appropriate individual at the law school or at the main campus Office of Student Financial Aid. That office has also assigned financial aid counselors to support the law school until Kim returns in July. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us by e-mail at marlow@law.arizona.edu, by telephone at 621-5433, or in person in Room 118. Ms. Rosie Gallegos has graciously agreed to coordinate the financial aid office in Kim’s absence. Dean Henrietta Stover is also available to meet with students as needed. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to working with you on your financial aid.

Final Bulletin of the Academic Year. This is the last issue of the Bulletin for the year. The Bulletin will resume weekly publication in August, at the beginning of the Fall 2006 semester. Have a nice summer!
