Thank You! Bake Sale Funds Fellowships 
Thank you to everyone who either baked some treats, worked at the table, and/or bought some of our delicious goodies at our Bake Sake last week!  Proceeds from the sale (over $150!) will go into our Women in Law Summer Fellowship Fund.  WIL will be offering 1-2 fellowships next Spring to help offset expenses for a member who will be volunteering her/his time at a public service organization during the summer.  If you're interested in these fellowships, talk to an Executive Board member or e-mail

WIL Social Scheduled For ???
Come relax with your fellow WIL members at this informal gathering!  (Many say its the most fun they've had all semester!)   Hosted in the home of our very own Kim DeMarino, we'll have food & drinks for everyone.  Although we thought to have our informal social on Friday, Nov. 6th, we want to avoid conflicting with the Amnesty International Meeting here at Chicago-Kent that weekend. We're looking at Friday, Nov. 13th - what do you think?  E-mail us at  Watch this space in the Record, the WIL webpage, and your e-mail for updates on the exact date. Come to our General Meetings on Nov. 3rd & 4th for details!

Agenda & Notes from October General Meetings  
If you missed the general meetings Oct. 6th & 7th, don't despair!  The agenda and notes from the meeting are now on the WIL website. 

WIL Outlines Now Available! 
WIL has compiled and up-to-date list of all outlines currently available to members on disk and in hard copy form.  If you didn't get a chance to sign up at our General Meetings last week, please e-mail Sita Balthazar-Thomas, our Secretary, at with your request. 

REMINDER: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 programs, receive discounts on WIL merchandise, and makes you eligle for our fellowships!  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 you!
