ANNOUNCEMENTS

90 Days Out Event Featuring Gladiator Style Jousting! On Monday, February 25 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. outside of the Corleone Student Center, the 2008 Class Gift Committee will be hosting a gladiator style jousting. Anyone can participate, but if we get a line of students we will take those who have contributed to class gift first. It should be ridiculously awesome. Rumor has it that our own SBA President will be contending. Phil is looking quite diesel and spry - Why don’t you challenge him in the inflatable ring and find out why SBA calls him “The Decider.”

Please join the Environmental Law Society at their next general meeting on Monday, February 25, 12:15 - 1:00 p.m., in CC 111. We will be discussing how to apply for the 2 student scholarships made possible by the silent auction last semester, upcoming ELS elections, our spring speaker series, as well as a guest appearance from Frank Zadroga from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, who will be discussing environmental problems associated with undocumented border migration and what you can do to help. We hope to see you there!

Monday, February 25, at 12:15 in CC-115 - For the first time in American history, the Supreme Court will decide whether the Second Amendment protects an individual right or a collective right in the case, D.C. v. Heller. Clark Neily, co-counsel for Respondent, will be here to discuss the case and answer any questions. Lunch will be provided. Presented by the Federalist Society.

Come join the Christian Legal Society on Tuesday, February 26, on the patio at Corleone at 12:15 p.m.! Bring a lunch and enjoy a Bible study led by Jim Richardson, Vice-President & In-House Counsel at the University Medical Center.

To All Law Students, Faculty, and Staff:  You are invited to attend the next general meeting for the Law Students Against Death Penalty, where we will also be presenting informational teach-in materials on the issue. Please join us Thursday, February 28 at 12:20 p.m. in Room CC-108. If you have any questions, email Christie Green at cagreen@email.arizona.edu.

Darrow K. Soll Memorial Criminal Law & Justice Lecture, Thursday, February 28, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m., School of Music - Crowder Hall. Speaker:  Stephen B. Bright; Topic: “Judges Avoiding Justice:  Indifference to Bad Lawyering and the Zealous Use of Procedural Rules to Avoid Issues of Life and Liberty.” Reception to follow. RSVP by Thursday, February 27, to ream@law.arizona.edu.

NACLE Visits. Deadlines for applications for NACLE visits to University of British Columbia and McGill are approaching (for both fall 2008 and spring 2009). If you are interested, and have not filled out an application, or have any further questions, please contact David Gantz (gantz@law.arizona.edu) before the end of February. We still have a few vacancies.

Mentoring Program for 2Ls. The State Bar is accepting applications for a mentor program that matches practicing attorneys with 2L law students at the University of Arizona and Arizona State University, so that they can make contact during the summer and establish a mentoring relationship during the 3L year. Mentors look forward to providing their mentees with support, and sharing their thoughts and advice on the real world issues of practicing law. Although mentors are not expected to provide assistance in research or job placement, students have found them to be important “first contacts” in the legal community. Mentors are available in both Phoenix and Tucson and, upon request, in other areas of Arizona. For an application, or for more information about the program, contact Dean Nailon (nailon@law.arizona.edu or 626-6107).

Apply for the 2008 - 2009 FAFSA NOW to be considered for all types of continuing aid, including NEED and MERIT based SCHOLARSHIPS, for next academic year and work study for this summer. For further information go to the financial aid web page How to Apply. Any questions, please contact Kim Marlow at marlow@law.arizona.edu or 626-8101.
