THE STATE OF THE EUROPEAN UNION AND THE PRIORITIES OF THE FRENCH
On Thursday, Oct. 26, 5:00 p.m. in the Moot Court Room, His Excellency Francois Bujon de l'Estang, the Ambassador of France to the US, will deliver a lecture entitled "The State of the European Union and the Priorities of the French President." This event is sponsored by the International Law Society with cooperation from the Departments of West European Studies and French and Italian.
France has the responsibility of the Presidency of the European Union until the end of this year. This is a crucial time for Europe. Negotiations are under way which should transform the institutions and the functioning of the European Union prior to its enlargement. At the same time, governments and the European Central Bank are confronting the new situation created by the adoption of a common currency, which is transforming the European economic landscape with important implications for trade and business worldwide. The French Ambassador will address these issues and, more generally, give his views on this period of important transition towards a more united Europe.
Ambassador Bujon de l'Estang has served as Ambassador to the United States since 1995. A graduate of the Institut d'Etudes Politique de Paris, the
Ecole Nationale d'Administration, and the Harvard Business School, he has dedicated himself to government service and work in the French nuclear industry. The Ambassador was first appointed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1966, as a special advisor to the staff of President Charles de Gaulle, and also served as Senior Advisor for Diplomatic Affairs, Defense and Cooperation, under Jacques Chirac from 1986-1988. He has been assigned to embassy postings in the US, the UK, and Canada. In the private sector,
among numerous corporate positions, he has served as President and CEO of COGEMA'S US operations and on the boards of several companies.
CIVIL RIGHTS IN THE 21ST CENTURY
On Tuesday, Oct. 24, BLSA will host the Honorable Nathaniel Jones of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit as he visits the Law School. He'll be addressing the student body at Noon in the Moot Court Room. His talk will be entitled, "Civil Rights in the 21st Century."
Judge Jones has authored numerous articles and papers and has been the recipient of many honors and awards. He also has made several trips to South Africa to participate as a trial observer, lecturer, and to observe the first ever South African democratic election.
Professor Fred Cate conducted a CLE program on privacy for the legal departments of Sabre and Travelocity in Dallas, spoke to the annual meeting of the Direct Marketing Association in New Orleans, and attended the third presidential debate in St. Louis as a guest of the Commission on Presidential Debates.
Professor Sarah Jane Hughes gave a paper at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago's Workshop on Promoting the Use of Electronic Payments: Considering Future Requirements on Oct. 11, in Chicago.

In addition, the paper will be published by the Bank with the proceeding of the workshop later this year.

Watch the grade board on Tuesday, Oct. 24, for a listing of closed courses from the 3Ls registration. Any "writing", Trial Process section, or seminars will require an alternate selection on your registration form. Registration materials will be available in the hallway in front of the Recorder's Office starting on Friday, Oct. 20. Updated class schedule grids and a numerical listing of courses for registration are included in this packet.
Registration is not on a first-come basis but on a graduation priority basis with a random lottery for remaining openings. Exceptions to this policy may be made for "writing" courses, seminars, clinics, skills training courses, and courses suggesting or requiring pre-requisites. So, being "first in line" is not important, until classes begin in the fall, and we are filling spaces based on the "wait" or "alternate" lists.
