Dean Aman presented two faculty awards on Tuesday in an informal ceremony in the law school lobby.
Upon receiving the Wallace Teaching Award, Professor Hannah Buxbaum reported that one of her children, hearing her speak of an award, was under the impression Buxbaum was going to be going to war. "But if war has anything to do with what happens in the classroom," she continued, "teachers and students are fighting on the same side."
Professor Seth Lahn received the Leonard D. Fromm Public Interest Award, presented by PILF president Mindy Finnigan, in honor of his tireless efforts to both promote and provide service in the public interest.
It was also announced this week that Professors Charlie Geyh and Jeffrey Stake are recipients of the Trustees Teaching Award.
ANN COULTER TO GIVE LECTURE ON SUPREME COURT ISSUES TUESDAY
The IU College Republicans are pleased to announce that Ann Coulter, best-selling author and Fox News political analyst, will be delivering a lecture on Tuesday, April 24, at 7:00 p.m. in Woodburn Hall 101. Labeled one of the 20 most fascinating women in politics by George Magazine, Coulter has appeared on ABC's This Week and Good Morning America, NBC's Today Show, Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, and CNN's Larry King Live, among others. Her lecture will be titled "The Supreme Court: One Vote Shy of Race Discrimination, Censorship, and DEATH." Please join us for this event.
CALL FOR PEER ADVISORS
Applications for peer advising for next year are available in Room 024. They are due by May 20.
LOCKERS, LOCKERS, LOCKERS
Everyone, i.e. everyone, must vacate, i.e. clean out your lockers by Tuesday, May 8. All lockers will be removed from the building, starting on May 9. Anything remaining in the lockers will be thrown out. New lockers will be installed during the summer. Rising 2 and 3Ls will be assigned new lockers. Thank you.
PETERS SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE
Applications are now available in room 024 for the Glenn D. Peters Law School Scholarship Fund. Applicants must be permanent residents of the Northern District of Indiana for the United States District Court--this basically means north of Indianapolis. While financial need can be a factor, greater weight is assigned to academic achievement and involvement in quality extracurricular activities. Application deadline is June 1, 2001.
HONOR, GLORY, MONEY!!
Dust off that seminar paper or that law journal note or perhaps even a moot court brief! There likely is some writing contest in the country that awaits your submission. Take a look at the bulletin board across the hallway from room 024 for descriptions of many of these contests. There is also a Web site dedicated to collecting all of these, at: http://www.people.memphis.edu/~law/. Many of our former law students have won prizes, one for $4,000!!! A little extra work on your part could be profitable.
ACCESSING YOUR SPRING GRADES
All grades are accessed only on INSITE. When a course's grades are ready, a note is posted on the grade board. The grades for that course then will be available for viewing on INSITE along with the grade distribution. Please note, however, that the grade distribution on INSITE may be incorrect, because the Law School does not include non-JD students in official course grade distributions. Students must know their PIN number to use INSITE. If you do not know your PIN number, you should contact the Registrar's Office, Franklin Hall, Room 100. The address for INSITE is http://insite.indiana.edu. Grades from the faculty for the spring semester are due on Wednesday, June 6. The grade board will also indicate if a faculty member has been granted an extension for cause in submitting grades. Also, all students will be e-mailed on June 7, the status of grades that may be late.
Exam Numbers are available for the spring semester in our office. Please remember that the spring exam schedule on INSITE is incorrect, use the Law School exam schedule that was distributed and posted.
SUMMER REGISTRATION/SCHEDULE ADJUSTMENTS
Students who wish to register or adjust their schedules for the summer session need to contact our office. Adjustments should be made prior to the first day of class. Total withdrawals must be processed before or on the first day of class for a 100% refund. Please note that the registrations and drop/adds need to be processed in our office first, because we need to date the transaction and write an accompanying memo to request a 100% refund.
CLOTHING DRIVE IS A SUCCESS
CLS thanks the law school for its generous donations to our clothing drive. Over 20 large bags of clothes were delivered to Backstreet Mission here in Bloomington. Now it is time to start saving up those old clothes for next year's drive!
EXAM WEEK COFFEE AND DOUGHNUTS
CLS also wants to remind the student body that CLS will be providing FREE coffee and doughnuts to students during the first week of exams. We will be set up in the lobby with brain food for all those heading into exams or just studying for the next one.
PENCILS FOR EXAMS
Attention Students: BARBRI has kindly donated number 2 pencils to the library for exam time. If you find yourself stuck right before an exam that will be machine scored, stop by the circulation desk and pick up a pencil. Good luck on your exams!
