Week of September 26,
Academic Calendar Reminder. Due to a religious holiday,
classes starting 4:00 and later are canceled on Monday,
October 3, and all classes are canceled on Tuesday,
ASP Program on Outlining. The Academic Support Program
will present the second of three Fall workshops on Tuesday,
September 27, 12:00-1:00 pm, in Rm. C50 (for day students)
and Wednesday, September 28, at 5:00-5:45 pm, in Rm.
C50 (for evening students). This workshop will focus on different
approaches to the course outlining process and will feature
students and staff 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
Family and Friends Day. Please join us for the Family
and Friends Day program on Saturday, October 1, from
1:00 pm to 4:15 pm. (This year's program is being held in
the afternoon rather than the morning in order to give students
the chance to participate in the Race
for the Cure.) The program is intended to give spouses,
partners, parents, children, and other important people in
students' lives the opportunity to visit the Law School and
get a taste of what their loved ones are experiencing as law
students. The program will include mini-classes taught by
me, Prof. Brill, and Prof. Piatt, as well as a mock trial
demonstration featuring members of our award-winning Trial
Team. If you would like to attend, please complete the response
form no later than September 27. If you have any questions,
please contact Jamie Lake (e-mail: JLAKE).
Book Returns. The Bookstore is in the process of doing
inventory of required texts and supplements in preparation
for returning unpurchased books to the publishers. If you
still have books to purchase, please do so by the end of the
week of September 26.
