Orientation Leaders and Mentors Wanted. Each year,
entering students tell us that much of their most informative
and valuable information comes from other students. As someone
who has been there, your advice can be critical to the success
of our incoming class. As an Orientation Leader, your tasks
may include leading a lunch discussion with a group of students
on the first day of Orientation (August 16); helping take
ID photos; answering questions and giving advice; and whatever
other help we end up needing. As a Mentor, you will be paired
with one or two first-year students to provide one-on-one
advice and guidance about adjusting to the law school experience.
If you are interested in becoming an Orientation Leader or
a Mentor (or better yet, both), please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
as soon as possible. Please include the following information

Joke of the Week. "I think that's how Chicago
got started. A bunch of people in New York said, 'Gee, I'm
enjoying the crime and the poverty, but it just isn't cold
enough. Let's go west!'" (Richard Jeni)
