The Law School will present the 1997 Earl Snyder Lecture in International Law on Wednesday, Sept. 10 at Noon in the Moot Court Room. The lecture, "The True Function of Law in the International Community," will be delivered by Dr. Philip Allott, Fellow of Trinity College and Reader in International Public Law, University of Cambridge.
Dr. Allott is a law graduate of Trinity College and serves as Specialist Advisor to the House of Lords Select Committee on the European Communities and the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee. In addition, he serves as an advisor to the Director-General, Legal Services, of the European Commission. Dr. Allott has written numerous publications in the international field and has been a visiting professor to several national and international law schools.
In 1990, he published Eunomia: New Order for a New World (Oxford University Press), a general theory of national and international society. His Snyder lecture will apply his general theory to the ancient and still very controversial question of the nature of International Law and its role in the future of international society.
Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.
Students are invited to participate in several of this year's Annual Alumni Weekend events. If you're interested in golf, Assistant Dean Len Fromm has an alumni-student golf outing planned for Saturday, Sept. 13; tee time is 7:00 a.m. at the IU Golf Course. The cost is $30.00 per person; you should register through the Students Affairs Office in Room 024.
Also, on Saturday, the School will host a pre-game tailgate party from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the northwest corner of 17th and Dunn Street near the Indiana Memorial Stadium. To date, more than 150 alumni plan to join the members of the Law School faculty at the tailgate. The cost of pre-game tickets will be reduced to $8.00 for students. Traditional tailgate food--including beer, brats and the works will be provided. Tickets for the tailgate are available from the Alumni Coordinator, Chris Zonkel, in Room 300 of the Law School.
Your attendance at these two events would be particularly meaningful to our alumni because you are the primary reason they donate their time and money. While they may feel a commitment to the place and building, it's the people they most care about the students and faculty. You also get a wonderful chance to network with alumni!
In addition to the events above, we are looking for two student helpers to assist us with the children during our class reunion luncheon at the Law School on Saturday, Sept. 13, 11 a.m - 2 p.m. Students will be paid $6.00 per hour and enjoy lunch.

Unfortunately, bike parking is becoming the same headache as car parking. The University Architect's office advises those riding bikes that, just as with car parking, you may have to find a space a few blocks away and walk. According to their office, there are plenty of racks and spaces at Myers and Rawles, just up 3rd Street. They are not planning to add any more racks nearby. Beware: those hitching their bike to lamp posts, ramps, and miscellaneous places may get a warning ticket from Parking Enforcement, or worse yet, have their bike impounded and receive a $20 ticket.
