1998 SUMMER SESSION SCHEDULE
The 1998 Summer Session Schedule is attached.
INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL LAW OPPORTUNITY
The International Environmental Law class time for spring has been changed to avoid a time conflict with Tax. It is now offered on Monday and Tuesday from 4:15-5:30, and its exam is April 29 at 1:00. Here are a few reasons you should consider taking it:
- You need not have taken either Environmental or International Law as a prerequisite.
- The professor is terrific. John Applegate is visiting next semester, and this is one of only two opportunities to take a class with this nationally-known environmental scholar.
- IT WILL NOT BE OFFERED AGAIN WHILE ANY OF YOU ARE STUDENTS.
It is quite likely that there will be a Bar Review course next summer at our school for students taking the Illinois as well as the Indiana Bar. There may also be enough interest for a Review for New York and California. In order to assess that interest, students considering those states should tell Dale in Room 024.
UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR REFUGEES CLINICAL PROJECT
The UNHCR will take one or two of our students for the summer of 1998 for a non-paying B710 Clinical Project in Brussels, Belgium. Although primarily for students who have completed two years of law school, students graduating are eligible to apply as well, provided they are able to finance their stay. Fluency in French (both writing and speaking) is required.
The open period for applying is November 10 through December 1. Please see Dean Fromm if you have interest and wish to apply.

PILF SUMMER FELLOWSHIP INFORMATION MEETING
Students interested in obtaining a PILF fellowship for this summer should attend the PILF Summer Fellowship Information Meeting. At the meeting former recipients will talk about their experiences. The participant's summer jobs represent a variety of public interest organizations and unique job experiences.
