ACLU FORUM ON PRISON RAPE
The ACLU/Bloomington's December meeting will be a public forum on "Prison Rape: Civil Rights, Human Rights and Public Health Policy Perspectives." The forum takes place on Tuesday, Dec.11, at 7:00 p.m. in the Monroe County Public Library auditorium. Panelists include Prof. Stephanie Kane of the IU Dept. of Criminal Justice, who will speak about HIV/AIDS in American prisons; Dr. Dean Rieger, MD, MPH, Chief Physician for the Indiana Prison's Health Care Services, who will address the general issue of rape and sexual abuse in Indiana prisons; Dan Newman, an educator with the Northern Kentucky Health Dept., who will address male-on-male rape; and John Krull, director of the Indiana Civil Liberties Union, who will discuss the civil-rights issues involved.
Professor Conkle's article, "The Free Exercise Clause: How Redundant, and Why?" has been published in the Loyola University Chicago Law Journal as part of a symposium issue focusing on law and religion.
The exam schedule is available online at www.law.indiana.edu/stu/schedule/spring2002.pdf. Do not consult INSITE for the law exam schedule, as the Law School uses an entirely different scheduling system.

Blankets, quilts, and sleeping bags in good condition are being collected at the Law School until Dec. 15 for donation to Afghan refugees. The "No More Victims Campaign" is sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee, the Middle Eastern Law Student Association, Amnesty International (Law Chapter), and the Asian Pacific-Islander American Law Student Association.
