ANNOUNCEMENTS

SAHLO welcomes Professor Iserson, a highly respected faculty member at the medical school, to discuss emergency preparedness on Wednesday, February 13, at 12:20 p.m. in CC-115. This talk should be a great introduction to the legal issues that will come up during the Flu Pandemic exercise at the medical school on February 22. All those who have signed up for the exercise are highly encouraged to attend. Brownies will be served!

The Oral Advocacy Organization will be hosting its first meeting of the semester on Tuesday, February 12, at 12:25 p.m. in CC-Room 110. Free pizza will be served. On the agenda:  what OAO is, what it can do for you; exciting events happening this semester; and, as always, a lively debate. We highly recommend attending to anyone who wants to feel a little more comfortable speaking in public, whether that’s in class, on stage, at court, or in job interviews! This meeting will be particularly informative for students of any class that requires an oral presentation at the end of the semester (all 1Ls in Legal Writing and Research, all others in Basic Trial Advocacy, Moot Court, etc.). We look forward to seeing everyone for some free pizza and (dare we say it?) fun on Tuesday! If you have questions, please e-mail oraladvocacy@gmail.com .

Event:  1L Law Review/Journal Orientation briefing.

STUDENT ENRICHMENT FORUMS.  This semester the College of Law is again offering a series of Student Enrichment Forums in which professors give lunchtime presentations about areas of interest in their work. Each forum will take place from 12:15 - 1:00 p.m. in the Sullivan Room (CC-116, at the west end of the Great Room); pizza and drinks will be provided. Space is limited to 30 students per forum, so sign up early for forums you would like to attend. To sign up, please e-mail Martha Fenn (fenn@law.arizona.edu) with the forums you would like to attend. (Because we are not sure what the response will be, we are asking that for now you sign up for no more than 2 forums.) The schedule is as follows:

VLP Outstanding Student of the Month.  The Volunteer Lawyers Program has selected Scott Simonson, 2L, as the Outstanding Law Student of the Month for the month of February. As a VLP Advocate, Mr. Simonson excelled in the Intake Clinic during the fall semester. According to the VLP, Mr. Simonson’s sincerity and compassion for others put clients at ease, making him one of the strongest interviewers in the Intake Clinic. The VLP also notes that he has a valuable ability to obtain necessary information from a client in an efficient manner, yet still allow the client to tell their story and feel validated. This semester Mr. Simonson is a key volunteer in the Superior Court Guardianship Pilot Project. Congratulations to Mr. Simonson on this well-deserved recognition.

Tucson Zoo Event. All are invited to join the Community Service Board on Saturday, February 23 from 9:00 a.m. - Noon for the February Community Service Project at the Reid Park Zoo. Although the zoo has other volunteers, this is our first project with the zoo. We will be doing maintenance-type work such as painting, raking and clean-up throughout the public areas of the zoo (not the enclosures!). Typically, the Community Service Board focuses on “human-centric” community service, but this month we will turn our focus to non-human animals. We will meet at the law school before the event and then head over to the zoo. To sign up, please e-mail Martha Fenn at fenn@law.arizona.edu. There is limited space, so please sign up early if you would like to join us.

Volunteers Needed to Write Biographies for “Women Lawyers - Women Leaders” Arch in the UA Women's Plaza of Honor. Located on the UA campus, west of Centennial Hall, the Women’s Plaza of Honor is a lovely space celebrating the accomplishments of extraordinary women trail blazers. While enjoying that space, visitors can read the biographies of these amazing women on a computerized kiosk. The “Women Lawyers - Women Leaders” Arch will be officially unveiled at AWLA's Wine & Cheese Party for law students on Friday, April 4th. Volunteers are needed to write 2 - 3 page biographical narratives of the honorees, and will be given an opportunity to interview their assigned honoree if desired. To volunteer, please contact Dean Paula Nailon (nailon@law.arizona.edu).
