NEWS FROM STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS
ENVIRONMENTAL LAW SOCIETY
"A CIVIL ACTION" AND DISCUSSION
ELS is taking a trip to the theater Thursday, February 11, to see the 4:50 p.m. matinee of "A Civil Action." Come out to Showplace Cinema, get your ticket, and meet inside the theater, near the food concessions, at about 4:30 p.m., so we can all sit together. After the movie, we will meet in the Hump Room at Nick's at about 7:15 p.m. to chat about the movie, the book, and the case. Discussion will be led by Professors Applegate and Robel. If you've already seen the movie or read the book but still want to join in on the discussion, you are welcome to meet us at Nick's even if you don't go to the matinee. Questions, or if you need a ride to the theater, contact Sasha Engle (smengle; 331-7998).
All those interested in learning more about gay and lesbian issues or educating others on these issues, please attend. Wednesday, February 3, at 12:15 in Room TBA.
SPORTS & ENTERTAINMENT LAW SOCIETY
BROWN BAG MEETING
The Sports & Entertainment Law Society will present a brown bag talk with Mr. Jack Swarbrick on Sports and Communications Law. Mr. Swarbrick is a partner in the Indianapolis firm of Baker & Daniels, president of JBSports, a sports management and marketing company, and has represented clients including U.S.A. Gymnastics, U.S. Swimming, and the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games. This event will be Monday, February 15 at noon in Room 120 of the Law School. Bagels, cream cheese, and drinks will be provided.
DIVERSITY ISSUES IN THE CLASSROOM
Students: concerned about teaching at the Law School? The Teaching Committee will be showing "Teaching to the Whole Class," a brief video about diversity issues in the classroom, on Tuesday, February 9, at noon in Room 214. Join us for the video and discussion. If you need more information, contact Rebecca Kreisher (1L).
HB1055: PETITION DRIVE
STOP ENACTMENT OF HB1055
The ACLU-IU Student Chapter and OUTLAW invite the entire community to join us in a petition drive to stop the enactment of HB1055. This bill, introduced by Rep. Woody Burton, prohibits any homosexual from serving as a parent in the foster care system and prohibits homosexuals from adopting children.
Tables will be set up in the Law School Lobby and in the IU Memorial Union on Thursday and Friday, February 11 and 12. If you are not sure where you stand on the issue, we welcome the opportunity to discuss these matters with you. If Thursday and Friday are inconvenient for you, contact us directly, and we'll come to you.
This is one of those rare occasions where a couple minutes of your time will make a tremendous difference in our government. Please take the time to stop by. Thank you.
David Fineberg, President,
ACLU-IU Student Chapter
NO SMOKING/SMOKING POLICY
This is the usual reminder of our policy regarding smoking. Smoking is limited to the outside patio area on the southeast side of the Law School, accessed by the door across from the main entrance to the library and adjacent to the central stairwell door.
In consideration of others, smokers are reminded that smoking is not permitted in the vicinity of the main entrance to the school. Also, smokers seem to have forgotten that smoking outside the student lounge entrance is particularly troublesome, since the large intake vent in that covered area draws the smoke into the Law Library.
