ANNOUNCEMENTS

INFORMATION SESSION ON JOINT DEGREES WITH BUSINESS SCHOOL

On Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 5:00 p.m., a session will be held to inform students about the joint degree offerings (JD-MBA, JD-MPA) between the law school and the business school. James Holmen, director of admissions at the Kelley School of Business, will lead the session; Professor David Greene of the Business School will join him. Current joint-degree students will also be available to answer questions. The session will take place in the third-floor faculty lounge. All first- and second-year students with an interest in these programs are encouraged to attend.

PROF. FISCHMAN SEEKS RESEARCH ASSISTANT

For a variety of environmental law projects (including one on the National Wildlife Refuge System), Professor Fischman seeks a research assistant to begin in January, the earlier the better. Fischman will return from sabbatical in early December and hopes to select a research aide at that time for work beginning the following month. If you are interested, please leave a resume and brief cover letter in his mailbox. Experience in environmental law is not necessary, though helpful. More important are good research, citation, and writing skills, in that order.
