We hope to see you there.

Community Service Board Tucson Zoo Project. There are still spaces available for Tucson Zoo volunteers this Saturday , February 23, from 9:00 a.m. - Noon at the Reid Park Zoo. Although the zoo has other volunteers, this is our first project with them. 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 at 8:15 a.m. and then head over to the zoo. To sign up, please e-mail Martha Fenn at fenn@law.arizona.edu.

The State Bar of Arizona Animal Law Section is co-sponsoring “Animal Law Year in Review,” a half-day CLE program at the State Bar’s Tucson office on Thurs., Feb. 21, 2008 from noon - 4:15pm. Law student registration is only $20 (to cover cost of printed materials). Topics will include:  cruelty/dogfighting (the Michael Vick case); juvenile cases; breed bans; possession limits; neighbor disputes; recent changes in leash laws; estate planning/animal standing (Leona Helmsley’s pet trust); no-kill shelters/adoptions (Ellen Degeneres adoption issue); negligent animal deaths (K-9 death in Phoenix); and emergency evacuation (the California fires). For more information or to register, contact Amy Ihrke at the State Bar (520-623-9944 or amy.ihrke@staff.azbar.org).

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 those 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 4. 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).
