On Friday, Oct. 10, JD students and international graduate students will face off at the first annual JD/LLM Soccer Showdown. The match, which promises to be a historic Law School event, will begin at 4:30 p.m. on field #1 at Karst Farm Park, located southwest of Bloomington off of State Road 45, on the corner of Airport Road and Endwright Road. Winners will toast their success and losers drown their sorrows at the post-game party for players, students, faculty, and friends, at Upland Brewery, 350 West 11th Street. Professors Bill Henderson and Lisa Farnsworth are freeing up space in their vehicles for those in need of transport to the game. If you'd like a ride, meet them in the parking lot across from the Law School on Indiana Avenue by 4:15 p.m.
For several weeks, access to the IU network via wireless and remote VPN connections suffered due to increased use and a technical difficulty. As of last Friday, Sept. 26., both issues have been resolved. New equipment has been added to increase capacity, and the technical complication has been eliminated. You are now free to roam about the network!
