Spring 2017 Substance Abuse Lecture is next Wednesday, February 1st

You will definitely want to make this lecture, either to fulfill this requirement now for the rest of the time you are in law school, or as your final opportunity to attend a free lecture if you haven’t yet attended and plan to graduate in Spring 2017.

Spring 2017 Substance Abuse Lecture

Date:  Wednesday, February 1

Time: 5:20 – 6:20 pm    *Please note:  ARRIVE EARLY to sign in – there will be no admittance after 5:20 pm.

Your attendance is verified by your signing the attendance sheet as you enter the lecture.  Doors will open at 5:00 pm, and no one is admitted after the lecture has begun.  Akron Law hosts this free lecture twice each year, at the beginning of the spring and fall semesters.

If you have any questions, please email Mary Cooke at mec@uakron.edu.
