Academic Calendar Reminder. Due to Rosh Hashanah, classes starting 4:00 and after are administratively canceled on Wednesday, September 20; and all classes (day and evening) are canceled on Thursday, September 21.
Fire Safety Reminders. In the event of a fire, it is vital that we clear the building as quickly as possible. Please keep the following in mind:
•Please use the nearest staircase to exit the building, unless the staircase is overcrowded. In that case, please seek out an alternate staircase (there are at least two on each floor). There are maps in the elevator bays on each floor identifying the locations of the staircases. Do not use the elevators.
•Once in the staircase, please proceed all the way to the first floor -- do not exit at the third floor in order to use the atrium staircase.
•Please do not take time to gather up and pack your belongings -- your safety is more important than your possessions. If you have valuables you do not wish to leave behind, please "grab and go" when you hear the alarm -- do not waste precious seconds or minutes powering down your laptop computer or packing up your belongings.
•Once you exit the building, please move either eastward or westward down the sidewalk so that you will be out of harm's way if any windows shatter. For your safety, please do not step into traffic or cross against a traffic light.
•Failure to follow the directions of Law School personnel during an evacuation may result in a disciplinary charge.
Constitution Day Observance. In observance of Constitution Day 2017, there will be a panel discussion on "The Constitution and the Trump Presidency," featuring Dean Harold Krent and Professors Sheldon Nahmod, Mark Rosen, and Carolyn Shapiro, on Monday, September 18, 4:00-5:15pm, in Rm.

Writing Contests. This is a reminder that a separate section of the Record provides information about writing contests open to law students. Many contests allow students to submit papers written for class. This can be a great way of earning a nice credential, and many of the contests have monetary or other prizes.
