From Professor Mary Becker

I am looking for a research assistant to work on an article on same sex marriages. The article will focus on arguments used by the states for allowing only heterosexuals to marry in the three contemporary marriage challenges (Alaska, Hawaii, Vermont). If you are interested give me a call at 906-5289 or stop by room 765.

From Professor Steve Heyman

The past few months have been eventful ones for Professor Steve Heyman. His article, "Righting the Balance: An Inquiry into the Foundations and Limits of Freedom of Expression," will be appearing shortly in the December 1998 issue of the Boston University Law Review. A shorter version was recently published in Genders, an online journal that may be found at In December, Professor Heyman was elected to membership in the American Law Institute, an organization of lawyers, judges, and scholars that is responsible for the Restatements of the Law. He and his wife, Kate Baldwin, collaborated on a book review which appears in the current issue of the Jane Austen Society of North America Newsletter. Best of all, their son Andrew was born just after Thanksgiving.

From Professor Krent

IIT has pioneered in offering undergraduate students experience working in team projects to provide solutions for problems provided by industry. One student team, funded by industry, is working on distance learning and its applications. A law student member can assist the team in exploring the intellectual property issues arising out of the use of educational materials on the Web. Please stop by if you are at all interested in this or other possible IPROs. Prof. Krent, room 735. Independent Research Credit is available.
