LLSA, NALSA, and the ACS would like to invite you to attend Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard’s visit to the College of Law on Monday, April 27, in Room 160, at 4:00 p.m. He will discuss his role as a state attorney general faced with controlling crime along an international border.

Please join us to support for National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. Pizza will be provided.

The Latino Law Student Association presents and CONGRATULATES the 2009 - 2010 executive board:

Thanks for a great year!

This semester, as all of you know, we lost a cherished member of our community, Yassiin Nasser. While nothing will ever make up for such a devastating loss to our community, friends of Yassiin would like to memorialize his life through the purchase of a clinic tile at Roundtree Hall. During the week before finals, we would like to extend people the chance to fund a part of Yassiin’s tile. Whether it be a couple of dollars, or just leftover change after lunch, please be part of our community’s attempt to keep the spirit of Yassiin alive at the University. Donations can be dropped off at room 201. Thank you.

Residents at the Broadway Proper Retirement Community are interested in continuing a discussion series called “You Be The Judge,” a discussion of real cases and issues. They’re looking for 2L or 3L student volunteer(s) to facilitate the discussion group on Tuesdays from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. If you are interested, please email Nancy Stanley (nancy.stanley@law.arizona.edu) for more information.

The Mike Eidson Scholarship Fund was established by the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Women for Justice Education Fund in 2008, through the Women’s Caucus, in honor of AAJ Past President Mike Eidson, whose vision and generosity inspired it. The national scholarship will be awarded annually to a rising 3L female student who has demonstrated a commitment to a career as a trial lawyer, along with dedication to upholding and defending the principles of the Constitution, and to the concept of a fair trial, the adversary system, and a just result for the injured, the accused, and those whose rights are jeopardized. The deadline for applications is May 31 and the first Scholarship will be awarded at the AAJ San Francisco convention, July 25 - 29. More information is available at: www.justice.org/resources/FINAL_Mike_Eidson_Scholarship_App(1).pdf.
