Akron Law Alumni Association seeks Student Director – Application Deadline: April 1, 2013

Message from Lia Thompson, Director of Alumni and Annual Fund

The Akron Law Alumni Association (“LAA”) Board of Directors has a dedicated position on its Board for a student director.  This unique and valuable opportunity provides the student director a chance to become involved in alumni leadership and alumni activities with Akron Law.  The student director represents Akron Law students to the LAA Board and works with the Board to identify ways in which students and alumni may work and communicate together for the benefit of both groups.

The student director serves in an ex-officio capacity and is expected to attend all Board meetings which are held at the School of Law on a bi-monthly basis throughout the academic year (i.e., August, October, December, February, and April).  The Board meetings begin at 4 p.m. and generally last for one and a half hours.

Applications for the 2013-14 student director to the LAA Board of Directors will be accepted from 2013-14 upper division law students who are in good standing.  Applications should include: (1) a current resume of the student; (2) a brief statement as to why the student believes that he or she should be selected to serve on the LAA Board; and (3) a brief statement as to why he or she wants to serve on the LAA Board.

The LAA Board’s executive committee will review the application materials and select a maximum of three students who will be invited to make a two-minute presentation to the Board at its April 8, 2014 meeting.  Students interested in being considered for this position should direct their application materials no later than Thursday, April 1 to Lia Thompson via e-mail (LiaThompson@uakron.edu) or dropping them off at the front desk of the Dean’s Office.

Join us on Friday, September 13 for Supreme Court Review 2013 — Legalistic Argel-Bargle

This program offers a comprehensive overview of all eighty cases from the United States Supreme Court’s past term. Justice Scalia described one of the major decisions as “argle-bargle” or nonsense, but this program tries to make sense of it all. Faculty experts from Akron Law discuss the Court’s cases in constitutional law, criminal law, civil procedure, administrative law, business, intellectual property, and health law. Designed in a newscast-type format, the presentations inform as they entertain. The program is intended for all interested audiences including attorneys, journalists, high school, college and law students and the general public.
Friday, September 13, 2013 at 9:00 AM in Law School, Room 151Akron Law students, please RSVP to Michele Novachek at manovac@uakron.edu. All others, please register at http://www.uakron.edu/law/continuinged/supremecourtreviewlegalisticarglebargle.dot.
