We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with the Indianapolis law firm of Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, who have agreed to sponsor the Law School's annual Sherman Minton Moot Court Competition. Bose McKinney recognizes the importance to law students of the opportunitiy to participate in events such as Moot Court, and their invaluable support will help sustain this thriving program.
Arguments in this year's competition begin this evening and will continue through the week until fall break, then resuming Oct. 28 for two weeks. Non-competing students are invited to drop by and listen to arguments.

RESULTS OF THE 29TH ANNUAL AUMNI/STUDENT/FACULTY GOLF OUTING
The Rolling Meadows "Links" golfers had a fantastic day at the annual golf outing, with numerous miraculous shots bringing into clear question the career choice of some of the "pros." More than once was the expression - "maybe we should be on the tour" overheard. Indeed, one erstwhile faculty member who said he was packing his car and heading to Florida after the outing has not been seen since. We will find out if he is teaching his class today.
The friendly competition, with a random hole "Bankers" handicap in play, found that Jake Rigney and Michael Cooley were just too good for the field. They had an excellent handicapped score of 67. Professor Dan Conkle's complaint that they
took too much time to hit their shots, held no water, although it is understood that one of HIS shots did find water! Professor Heidt's complaint involving causation, negligence, and lack of appropriate care was not understood by the rules official, so was also summarily denied. However, it must be said that Jake and MIchael did not run away with the competition. Only a stroke behind were the teams of BJ Brinkerhoff and Aaron Krolik (winning second place) and George Langendorf and Holt Hedrick (third place). Professor Daniel Conkle and David Suess (Bose McKinney attorney) sneaked by Bryan Babb (another Bose attorney this may be a hint for those who want jobs with this firm) and Len Fromm for fourth place. Here are the individual winners for speciality shots:
Closest to the PINs: the precise faculty Dan Conkle and Bob Heidt (what would you expect?)
Longest Putts: Emily Mouton and Michael Cooley (him again!)
Long Drives: Rich Baer and mighty George Langendorf (Tiger would have had no chance!)
