STUDENT BAR ASSOCIATION
Thanks to all who attended the Annual SBA Picnic on Saturday, August 22, in Grant Park. Congratulations to the faculty softball team which was victorious over the SBA Team!! I would like to extend a special thanks to Nick Scarpelli and Andy Stein for organizing that event. The first SBA Board of Governors meeting of the academic year took place on Thursday, August 27. I will include important minutes of that meeting in next week's SBA Record announcement.
Dean Sowle's Advisory Council will be meeting in several weeks. If you have any general concerns about the quality of student life, or any particular problems that you have encountered that you would like to see resolved, please contact your class representative, or Elayna Pham (EPHAM) ASAP.
Lastly, check next week's Record for an update on the September Social. We are finalizing the location and date and we'll get that information to you as soon as it is made available to us! I hope that your first week went well and as always, do not hesitate to e-mail me with any questions or concerns (EPHAM).

Welcome back everyone!
First Meeting: Amnesty International will be holding its introductory meeting on Monday, August 31, at 5 pm in room C76. Everyone is welcome to attend!
What is Amnesty International: Amnesty International is a worldwide organization with over 1 million members. AI works on behalf of thousands of victims of human rights abuses every year. AI provides law students with great opportunities to get involved with the international legal community and to keep up with developments in international humanitarian and legal affairs.
Why Get Involved: 1998 marks the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) so this a great year to get involved in International Human Rights. Amnesty International is organizing a National Lawyers Meeting that will take place on November 7 at Chicago-Kent and which is attracting lawyers from all over the US. The Chicago-Kent AI group wants to put together an "Organizing Committee" for the Lawyers Meeting. If you are interested in helping to organize the AI Lawyers Meeting please attend the meeting or/and e-mail Sita Balthazar-Thomas at SBALTHAZ.
The Commentator is Chicago-Kentís monthly student newspaper. We are looking for writers and editors. For all who are interested, please e-mail Ivy Israel (IISRAEL). Any articles for the September issue must be submitted on disk by Wednesday, September 23, either in The Commentator mailbox or to The Commentator office in C86. Long live paper media!
