This Week in the Law School

Just five days separates you from a well-deserved fall break. Before you go, though, we've got a full slate of events this week. The IU Health Center will be here Tuesday for a flu shot clinic (be sure to download and print the forms in advance). That night, Provost Lauren Robel (and Profs. Sanders and Fuentes-Rohwer) will host a Hot Topics forum on voting and power. Come if you can.

It would be swell if you could sign up for Socctoberfest today. I've been told ILA isn't allowed to mention what beverages will be available, but one might start with the letter "b" and end in "eer." There will be barbecue, brats, soccer, shirts, soda, and it all costs you... nothing! Email Rhea May today (see announcements). This is truly one of the more fun events we put on every year.

Enjoy your break. We'll see you back on the 17th.
