ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Law Commons: Our Promise to the Future.  All students, faculty and staff are invited to a brief groundbreaking ceremony to be held on Wednesday, April 25, from 2:30 - 3:15 p.m. in the lobby of the main building of the College of Law, followed by the symbolic turning of dirt, on the west side of the law buildings by the metal sculpture. Joining us will be Regent Fred Boice, Provost George Davis, the architects from Gould Evans, representatives from the construction contractor Hensel Phelps, and a host of others. We are especially encouraging students, faculty, and staff to attend the celebration. Cake and punch will be served. We are planning a larger recognition celebration when the project is completed, but this is an important day for the College, and we hope you’ll take a few minutes to observe it.

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 14 - May 18, 2007. 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 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 under the guidance of librarians. It will meet in Room 140. 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.

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2006 - 2007 Andrew Silverman Community Service Awards:

NACLE Visitors - It’s too late for fall 2007, but there are still openings for a NACLE visit to McGill, Dalhousie, UBC, and Ottawa for Spring 2008. They are all excellent law schools in interesting cities. Anyone who might be interested should contact David Gantz, either now or in August after fall classes begin.
