PANEL DISCUSSION ON SCHOOL VOUCHERS THURSDAY
Come participate in a panel disussion about school vouchers, a hot topic in recent elections. Panel members will include Clint Bolick, representing the Institute for Justice; law professors Alex Tanford and Kevin Brown; and a distinguished guest from the School of Education. School voucher programs are designed to provide parents with access to the school of their choice, but opponents charge that this raises serious issues, including the impact it could have on the public school system, and separation of church and state. We'll see you at noon on Thursday, Nov. 6, in room 125. Did we mention FREE LUNCH?
NUSSBAUM TO GIVE HARRIS LECTURE NEXT WEEK
Martha Nussbaum, the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago, will give the Law School's annual Harris Lecture at noon on Nov. 14, in the Moot Court Room. Her lecture is titled "Beyond the Social Contract: Capabilities and Global Justice."
At Chicago, Nussbaum holds positions in the philosophy department, law school, and divinity school and is an associate in the classics department and the political science department. She is also the founder and coordinator of the new Center for Comparative Constitutionalism. She is the author of a number of books, including Cultivating Humanity: A Classical Defense of Reform in Liberal Education (1997), Sex and Social Justice (1998), Women and Human Development (2000), and Upheavals of Thought: The Intelligence of Emotions (2001).
Established in 1946 by a trust from the bequest of India Crago Harris in the name of her husband, Addison C. Harris, the Harris Lecture Series brings prominent scholars to the Law School every year. Past Harris lecturers have included Owen Fiss, Jules Coleman, Guido Calabresi, Frank Michelman, Barbara Babcock, Lawrence Tribe, Robert Bork, and Derrick Bell.
Professor Fred Cate was appointed to the executive committee of the Phi Beta Kappa Senate. His chapter, "Privacy Protection and the Quest for Information Control," appears in Who Rules the Net? Internet Governance and Jurisdiction (Adam Thierer and Clyde Wayne Crews Jr., eds., 2003), and his article (with Margaret Eisenhauer and Christopher Kuner), "A Proposal for a Global Privacy Protection Framework," appears in the American Bar Association's Consumer Protection Update (Summer 2003).
Professor Rob Fischman presented a paper entitled "Predictions and Prescriptions for the Endangered Species Act" at a conference on Oct. 24 at the Lewis and Clark Law School. The conference was on the 30th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act. Fischman's paper is based on an article that is forthcoming in Environmental Law.

CALLING ALL THESPIANS: AUDITIONS THIS WEEK
The Law Drama Society is pleased to announce auditions for our forthcoming blockbuster, "The Dining Room", written by A.R. Gurney. Auditions will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, Nov. 5-6, in the Moot Court Room, and on Friday, Nov. 7, in room 216. There is no need to prepare a routine or soliloquy in advance, as scripts for reading will be provided. Interested individuals need not show up right at noon, as auditions will be conducted on an informal "rolling" basis throughout the 90 minutes. Further details regarding rehearsals and other logistics will be communicated when casting is set.
Composed in 1982, "The Dining Room" is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the place where the family assembles daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions. A mosaic of interrelated scenes, some funny, some touching, some rueful, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP. Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor, and abundant humanity.
Clear your social calendars: The Drama Society will perform "The Dining Room" on Thursday, Jan. 29, and Friday, Jan. 30. We look forward to a strong turnout at the auditions, so "Brush Up Your Shakespeare!" this weekend, and be sure to e-mail co-presidents Dave Campbell (email@example.com) and Justin Treasure (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
