Call for Papers – University of La Verne Law Review

The University of La Verne Law Review publishes two issues each year, a Juvenile Issue in the fall and a Symposium Issue in the spring.  Our upcoming Symposium Issue will focus on the field on Immigration Law and will be published in April 2010.  

In conjunction with the Symposium Issue, our Law Review is offering law students the opportunity to submit their Note or Comment for our Student Writing Contest.  The grand prize is $200 and publication in Volume 31 of the University of La Verne Law Review.  The winner will also have the opportunity to present his or her work to leading experts in Immigration Law at our Live Symposium, to be held on February 19-20, 2010.  I have attached flyers containing more information on submitting to the Symposium Issue and to the Student Writing Contest.  We look forward to receiving submissions from the University of Akron School of Law. 

For more information, see flyers on the general bulletin boards.

DTP’s “Support a Soldier” Project

Delta Theta Phi will be conducting the program entitled “Support A Soldier” throughout the remainder of the school year.  Through the not-for-profit group “Adopt A Soldier,” DTP has adopted a platoon stationed overseas in Iraq.  DTP will be sending monthly care packages to the platoon, and this month’s package will have a Halloween theme.  Look for the collection bin in front of the DTP office every Monday of every week to drop off donations.  A package will then be sent every month following the last Monday of the month.  The final collection day for this month will be Monday, October 26, 2009.

Everyone can participate!  Suggested items include:

snacks, personal hygiene items, blankets, comforters, white socks, laundry detergent, sporting goods, cough drops, footpowder, gel insoles for boots, bars of soap, stick deodorant, sunscreen, chapstick, baby wipes, dry shampoo, q tips, dryer sheets, eye drops, odd postcards, magazines, old electronic equipment

Themed items – candy-corn (the orange and yellow Halloween candy), “tasteful” Halloween masks/apparell

We cannot pack: aerosol cans, aspirin (as it is a blood thinner, but tylenol or ibuprofen are fine), carbonated liquids, anything with obscene or nude material

DTP members and students alike are also encourage to become pen-pals with students stationed overseas.  Simply contact DTP at akrondtp@gmail.com, and we can help direct you to the information of a soldier not reguarily recieving mail from home.

Help us give back to those who give it all!!

Any questions or concerns may be sent to akrondtp@gmail.com
