Don't forget that the deadline for turning in
your application to run for a 1L Representative position is Friday, Sept.
18th! Applications are available on the WIL bulletin board.
There are two positions, one per division (day and evening). 1L Reps
are members of the WIL executive board and get directly involved in planning
programs and events for the coming year. If you're interested in
running for these positions, pick up an application and return it to the
WIL mailbox on the 2nd floor by 5:00 p.m.
on Friday, September 18th. If you have
any questions about these positions, please do not hesitate to contact
any member of the executive board or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
you forget to turn in your mentorship application?
Thank you to all students who have applied for the mentorship program
that links 1Ls with upper-class students! We've
gotten a tremendous response, especially from 1Ls. However, we do
still need more upperclass members to participate. If you're still
interested in being either a 1L mentee or a 2L, 3Ls, or 4L mentor. please
contact Heather Fritsch, Mentoship Coordinator (email@example.com)
as soon as possible. Matches will soon be made, so watch your e-mail
for a message about your mentee/mentor. We encourage all participants in
this program to come to our Welcome Reception on Oct. 1st so you can meet
each other face-to-face!
Have you paid your membership dues yet?
Please remember to pay your dues for the 1998-'99
year. A $10.00 check made payable to Women in Law can be left in
the WIL mailbox on the 2nd Floor. Payment of dues allows you to participate
in elections and mentorship porgrams and receive discounts on WIL merchandise.
Dues are used to fund programs and social events throughout the year, as
well as fellowships we give to students over the summer to help pay for
expenses when they volunteer with a public service agency. Thank

Women in Law has recently revamped its web page
to include information on our organizational goals, upcoming program, mentorship
programs, WIL library and outline bank, executive board, and links of interest.
But we have not only information about WIL events and programs, but also
information about events and organizations throughout the Chicagoland area
that might be of interest to our members. But
we need your help! If you know of an upcoming event or an organization
that might be of interest to our members, please e-mail the details to
Charis Runnels (firstname.lastname@example.org)
