CONFLICT RESOLUTION INSTITUTE BROWN-BAG: NATIONAL ISSUES FORUM
"Practicing Deliberative Democracy: The National Issues Forum in Bloomington," a talk by Professor Jeffrey Isaac and Marsha Bradford, will be given today, March 25, at noon, in the dean's conference room (third floor) at SPEA. Professor Jeffrey Isaac is the James H. Rudy Professor of Political Science and the director of IU's Center for the Study of Democracy and Public Life. Marsha Bradford currently serves as the Coordinator for the Safe and Civil City Program (S&CCP) in the Bloomington Mayor's Office.
Isaac and Bradford will speak about Bloomington's experience with a National Issues Forum on the topic of "Creating Communities, Fighting Sprawl," held last November and attended by over 100 citizens. They will present their thoughts on this experience, present the results of the evaluations, and offer their opinions on the strengths and weaknesses of using the National Issues Forum public deliberation process as a way to involve citizens in voicing their opinions on issues of public concern.
Prof. Craig Bradley's latest article, part of a symposium on the 40th anniversary of Mapp v. Ohio, has just been published by the Case-Western Reserve Law Review. Titled "Mapp Goes Abroad," it is an analysis of how other countries, including the European Court of Human Rights, employ the exclusionary rule in their criminal procedure jurisprudence.
Prof. Rob Fischman gave a faculty colloquium at the University of California at Davis School of Law on March 12. His topic was "The Two Characteristic Styles of Environmental Law: Narrowing the Divide."
The summer schedule of classes is now online at www.law.indiana.edu/stu/schedule/summer2002.pdf.
BLOOD DRIVE TODAY!
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.

The society seeks to restore fundamental values such as human dignity, protection of individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, and access to justice as the pillars of American law. For more information about the organization, please visit www.madisonsociety.org.
You are cordially invited to attend a lunchtime gathering of the society on Wednesday, March 27, at noon, in room 122.
