What we covered in our Tuesday meeting:

 

Membership Dues

This year, membership dues are $15. Cash or checks made payable to WIL can be left in the second floor mailbox for Women in Law. Please make sure to use an envelope with your name on it. Membership dues are primarily used for our mentorship program and also to hold social events.

 

Mentorship Program

WILís attorney-students mentorship program is accepting applications for students looking for a practicing attorney to be her member.Applications can be obtained by emailing wil@kentlaw.edu or picking up a handout from the WIL Bulletin Board on the Concourse level starting on Tuesday.Applications are due back to WIL (in the 2nd floor mailbox) by September 19.The first cocktail hour with your mentors will take place early in October.Only paid WIL members are eligible for this program, so please make sure you get your dues returned to us.

 

Social Event

WIL has teamed up with the Labor and Employment Law Society to have a pub crawl. The pub crawl will take place on Thursday, September 25. We will meet everyone in the Kent lobby at 6:30, and the bus leaves promptly at 7:00. The list of bars will be out soon.

 

If you would like to buy a ticket, please leave cash or a check made payable to LELS in the amount of $12 in the WIL mailbox.For each ticket we sell, we make $3, and therefore, we will not need to do as much fundraising.Please get your money in as soon as possible. Your $12 covers transportation costs, and possibly some drink discounts.

This year, we are having feminist reading discussion groups once a month. The first reading can be picked up off the WIL bulletin board on the concourse level after Tuesday or can be received by emailing WIL@kentlaw.edu. The first discussion group will meet Tuesday, September 23 at 12:00pm.It will be held in room 345.Feminists and non-feminists, women and men, students and professors are all welcome to attend.
