ATTENTION GRADUATING STUDENTS!
Believe it or not, it is time to begin the planning for the graduation display for the lobby. As we have done in the past, we want to do a collage of pictures, memorabilia and clippings regarding your three years of law school. We have already gathered a few things, but the real source of such items is all of you. We will return all the items to you following graduation.
Here is what we would like to include: pictures (students, events, weddings, children)depicting some aspect of your lives while law students; memorabilia including law school tee shirts, cups, posters from events that occurred during the three years, plaques, trophies or awards won can be included; clippings from any newspaper article about you, a fellow third year, or the law school during the three years. These can be local paper clippings or from your hometown. Be sure to include what newspaper the article is from and the date of the article; anything that has significance to you; will fit in the display case; and is in reasonably good taste can be included.
Please get these items to us as soon as possible. Each item must have a completed form attached that includes your name and the address where you want it returned. You can pick up these forms at the Reference Desk or in the Library Office. For pictures, include who or what it is, and what year it was taken. All comments or reminiscences must be signed, although we will not necessarily use your name in the display. We reserve the right to omit any item if needed.
Give items to the librarians in the reference office or to the assistant to the law library director. To insure that we have all the necessary information to return the items, do not just leave them in the office or at the Circulation Desk.
