ATTENTION GRADUATING STUDENTS: YOUR MEMORABILIA NEEDED FOR LOBBY DISPLAY CASE
Believe it or not, it's time to begin planning our annual graduation display in the lobby! As we have done in the past, we will create a collage of pictures, memorabilia, and clippings commemorating your three years at the Law School. We have already gathered a few things, but the best source of such souvenirs is you. We would like to include pictures depicting your lives while law students (friends, events, weddings, children, etc.); memorabilia, including Law School tee shirts, cups, and posters from events; plaques, trophies, and awards; newspapers clippings from the past three years about you, a fellow third-year law student, or the Law School (be sure to include the date and the name of the newspaper); and anything else of significance that is in reasonably good taste and that fits in the display case.
Please give items to the librarians in the reference office or to the assistant to the Law Library director as soon as possible. We will return all the items to you following Memorial Day. To ensure that we have all the necessary information to return the items, please do not leave your items in the office or at the circulation desk. Each item must have a completed form attached that includes your name and your return address. You can pick up these forms at the reference desk or in the library office. For pictures, please submit the full name of each person in the picture, the event or location of the picture, and the year it was taken. All comments and reminiscences must be signed (however, your name will not necessarily be used in the display).
