Family and Friends Program.  We are tentatively planning on offering a "Family and Friends" program for first-year students on Saturday, October 28, from 10:00 to 12:00 noon.  The program is intended to give your spouses, parents, children, and other important people in your lives the opportunity to visit the Law School and get a taste of what you are experiencing as a law student.  The program will include a building tour; one or more mini-classes showing what goes on in a law school class; and a discussion session addressing problems and concerns that friends and families can have when a loved one goes to law school.

If you think you would like to attend the program, please send an e-mail to Boo Choi (BCHOI) in the Student Services office by Thursday, October 5.  Please indicate how many guests you would likely bring to the program.  If we receive enough responses, the program will be offered as planned, and those responding will be sent further details closer to the date of the program

Presidential Management Intern Program. The Presidential Management Intern Program was created "to attract to the Federal service outstanding individuals from a wide variety of academic disciplines who have an interest in, and commitment to, a career in the analysis and management of public policies and programs." The program provides opportunities for recent graduates of masters-level or doctoral-level programs to work for the federal government.  Interns receive an initial two-year appointment with a salary of $35,000 in the first year, and higher salaries in succeeding years.  To qualify, you must satisfy all graduation requirements by August 31, 2001, and must be nominated by the Law School.  If you are interested in being nominated, please contact me no later than Wednesday, October 18.  Applications must be submitted by October 31.  For more information about the program, go to

Joke of the Week.  A guy gets a call from his doctor, who says, "I have bad news, and worse news.  The bad news is that your test results came back and they showed you only have 18 hours to live."  The guy responds, "Oh, my God!  What could possibly be worse than that!"  The doctor replies, "I've been trying to reach you since yesterday."
