If you are interested in representing the Law School on a team in the ABA Negotiation Competition, please send an email to Professor Tony Arnold, firstname.lastname@example.org, with the following information, no later than noon on Monday, September 12 (TODAY):
1) Your name and year in school (e.g., 2L, 3L) [Note: 1Ls cannot compete];
2) Why you are interested;
3) Any background you have in negotiation (including whether you have taken or are taking the Negotiation class);
4) Your general schedule availability for practices in the evenings and on weekends; and
5) Your contact information (i.e., email address, cell phone, etc.) so that we can get ahold of you easily and quickly.
The regional competition will be held November 12-13 in Participants will need to be current members in good standing of the American Bar Association and its Law Student Division (as a competitor in this competition, the school will pay for this for you, if you are not already a member), and have a valid passport, as this will involve international travel. This year’s competition will involve negotiating on issues related to real property. .
The co-coaches are Professor Mary Jo Gleason and Professor Tony Arnold. Depending on the number of students expressing interest, there may or may not be a tryout. Practices will occur in evenings and on weekends, usually at least twice per week. Last year, we had a team advance to the national competition, and a few years ago, we had a team that won the national competition. Let’s continue our record of success in this competition! If you have any questions, please contact Professor Arnold.

If you are interested in a career with the U.S. Army JAG and would like to sign up for an interview, please apply through Symplicity. After you log in, click on OCI and enter Session 3. Their website is: http://www.goarmy.com/jag/about.html
Interviews are currently scheduled for Tuesday, October 4th. Depending upon how many students sign up, Captain Schlueter may also conduct interviews on Wednesday, October 5th.
All On-Campus Interviewers are requested to read and agree to a non-discrimination policy.
This non-discrimination policy is for military recruiters. In order to conduct job interviews in the law school or to obtain assistance from the Career Services Office, prospective employers must sign a statement of nondiscrimination based on race, color, religion, nationality, gender, disability or sexual orientation. Federal laws relating to military service preclude representatives of the Armed Forces from signing the nondiscrimination statement in its entirety. Congress also has enacted a statute, known as the Solomon Amendment, requiring that federal funding -- including several categories of student loans -- be terminated at any educational institution that refuses access to military recruiters. Therefore, the law school grants access to military recruiters who sign the nondiscrimination statement to the extent consistent with federal law.The
