HAMILTON DISCUSSES INTERNATIONAL LAW & WAR ON TERROR TODAY
The International Law Society is happy to announce that it will be hosting IU Law School alum, former US Representative Lee H. Hamilton on Monday 4th March at 4:30 p.m. in room 121. Currently, Lee Hamilton is both the Director of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars http://wwics.si.edu/ in Washington, DC. as well as Director of the Center on Congress http://congress.indiana.edu/ here at Indiana University Bloomington. Before becoming Director of these two organizations, Lee Hamilton served 34 years as a US Congressman from Indiana's 9th District. While serving in the US Congress, Lee Hamilton distinguished himself in the area of foreign affairs and served as chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs during the 103rd Congress.

MARKS GIVES SNYDER LECTURE THURSDAY
On Thursday, March 7, Susan Marks, who is on the faculty of Cambridge University, will present the Snyder Lecture at noon in the Moot Court Room. Her topic is "Empire's Law." Marks, a provocative and exciting speaker and scholar, has written extensively on international law.
AMAR TO GIVE HARRIS LECTURE MARCH 20
Akhil Amar, the Southmayd Professor of Law at Yale, will give the Harris Lecture at noon on March 20 in the Moot Court Room.
Professor Cate spoke in Brussels on "U.S. and European Research on the Cost of Privacy," at a conference on European E-Commerce Law sponsored by the three major Belgian law faculties. He filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in Trans Union v. FTC, arguing that the D.C. Circuit erred when it determined that target marketing lists were subject to reduced constitutional protection because they concerned no "public interest." He has also been appointed by the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution to lead a joint project on privacy issues in financial and technology services.
TELECOMMUNICATIONS MOOT COURT TEAM TAKES SECOND
On Feb. 22 & 23, Indiana University competed in the National Telecommunications Moot Court Competition in Washington, DC. This year's team (Leigh Erin Irons, Jonna McGinley, Jennifer Stephens, and coach Tom Brummett) came away with Second Place and the award for Best Brief. This is the first time an IU team has made it to the finals, and we congratulate the competitors!
JESSUP TEAM COMPETES AT NORTHWESTERN
On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Jessup International Moot Court Team (Megan Stifel, Sam Miller, Kristin Glazner, Chris Harrell, and Terrance Stroud) competed in the North Central Regional Tournament of the annual Jessup International Moot court competition at Northwestern University's School of Law in Chicago. Although the team competed well and didn't give up any ground, it did not advance to the regional finals.
However, the IU Bloomington Jessup team did win 1st place in the written portion of the competition. IU Bloomington's Jessup International Moot Court Team received the "Best Brief" award (soon to be seen in the trophy case on the 1st floor). The team recently sent its memorials to Washington, DC for entry into the Dillard Competition. Results of this competition won't be known for several weeks.
The team warmly acknowledges Professor Hannah Buxbaum, (Jessup team Faculty Advisor), Professor David Fidler, and Dean Scott Palmer for their help throughout the ordeal. Professor Buxbaum, Professor Fidler and Dean Palmer all provided invaluable assistance in the pre-Jessup grilling! If any returning law students are interested in competing in the Jessup competition next year, please speak with any of this year's team members or Professor Buxbaum!

TURN OUT FOR BLOOD DRIVE ON MARCH 25
Come one, come all! It's the spring blood drive at the Law School. Due to last Halloween's stellar support and marvelous turnout, the Red Cross has again asked us for blood. Yes, there will be food, and yes, there will be prizes. Please come; you could help save up to four lives with one pint of blood, and the life you save may be your own.
The blood drive will be on Monday, March 25, from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m., in the student lounge in the basement. Please come and bring a friend. We welcome first-time donors, too. Right now, the average age of a blood donor is YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S AGE. And while we love your grandmother, the supply of blood donors needs to start getting YOUNGER! Please do your part. Questions? Contact Patti Cummings, 3L.
