ASP Program on Outlining. The Academic Support Program will present the second of three Fall workshops on Tuesday, September 28, 11:30 am-12:30 pm, in the Auditorium (for day students) and Wednesday, September 29, 5:00-5:45, in Rm. 590 (for evening students). This workshop will focus on different approaches to the course outlining process and will feature professors and upper-level students sharing tips for assembling a useable and complete course outline. Although the programs are mainly aimed at first-year students, all students are welcome to attend.

U.S. District Court: "Courtroom as Classroom" Event. The United States District Court is offering a program, "The Courtroom as Classroom," for Chicago-Kent students on Wednesday, October 13, 3:30-5:00 pm. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Denise Lang (DLANG) so that we can provide a rough estimate of attendance to the District Court. Although the program is open to all students, first-year students are particularly encouraged to attend. The program provides an introduction to federal court practice and procedures. Each law school in the district is given its own day to send students to hear from a variety of speakers drawn as much as possible from graduates of the law school. Speakers typicially include a U.S.District Judge; U.S. Magistrate Judge; U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge; Assistant U.S. Attorney; and Federal Defender Program Staff Attorney.

The program will be held in the Parsons Memorial Courtroom, Rm. 2525, on the 25th Floor of the Dirksen Federal Building, 219 South Dearborn Street. The Dirksen Building is within walking distance; transportation will not be provided. (Walk east on Adams Street to Dearborn Street; the Dirksen Building is on the southeast corner of Adams and Dearborn.) You should plan to arrive at least 10-15 minutes early, as it can take time to get through the security checkpoint. You should then proceed directly to the 25th Floor. Please bring a photo ID with you, but do not bring cameras or any personal protection devices (weapons, pocket knives, pepper spray, etc.).

Joke of the week. After a long and fruitful life, Angus MacDonald died. His widow called the local paper, requesting that a death notice be published. Ever frugal, she asked that the notice simply state, "Angus is dead." The newspaper editor told her that death notices had to be a minimum of six words. "Fine," she replied. "Make it: 'Angus is dead; Volvo for sale.'"
