ANNOUNCEMENTS

Informational Sessions - Richard Grand Legal Writing Competition. All students interested in participating in the seventh annual Richard Grand Legal Writing Competition are invited to attend one of the two upcoming informational sessions: Thursday, October 4, at 12:10 in room CC109 or Monday, October 8, at 12:10 in room CC108. Refreshments will be provided. The competition will be held this year from October 19 to October 29. It is open to all students at the Rogers College of Law. The top five student participants will receive cash prizes of:  First Place - $2000; Second Place - $1000; Third Place - $500; Honorable Mention - $250 each. This year, the competition will differ a bit from years past. Participants will be asked to write a profile of an individual who has had some experience with the law or the legal system. It could be a lawyer, a judge, a victim, a criminal defendant, a witness, a juror, a litigant, a police officer, a migrant, a civil rights advocate - the possibilities are many. For more information, contact Professor Rabe at rabe@law.arizona.edu.
