ELLUS Elections Today

Law Student Ticket Lottery

Students, our annual sports tickets lottery will take place next week.  This year the law school received 62 combination (football and basketball) season tickets and 19 football only season tickets.  In preparation of the lottery, a sign-up sheet will be placed on the SBA office door (Rm. 245) at 12 p.m. today.  There will be two columns.  Under one column you will be able to sign up for combination season tickets and under the other column you will be able to sign up for football only season tickets.  Please sign up either for football only or combination tickets, not both.  By your name please state whether you want one or two sets of tickets for you and a guest.  You are allowed to sign up for two sets of combination season tickets (you and one guest), meaning that if you are selected in the lottery to receive tickets then you and your guest’s tickets count as two against the 62 (therefore 60 will be left).  The same applies for football only tickets. 

The sign-up sheet will stay up until 5 p.m. Friday, April 15 and the lottery will take place this weekend.  The results will be posted by 12 p.m. on Monday, April 25. On Tuesday, April 26 ticket vouchers will be available in the SBA office for students that are selected in the lottery.  Those vouchers allow you to go pick up your tickets at the student ticket office in the Student Activities Center (SAC) and they will be available for pickup until April 29. The cost of the combination tickets is $210 and the football only season tickets is $72 and you will not be required to pay until you present your voucher at the ticket office.  If selected, more information will be given to you when you pick your vouchers up from the SBA office.  If you have any questions or want me to place your name on the sign-up sheet, please feel free to send me an email (danieljay.cameron@gmail.com).

LAW CLINIC FELLOWSHIP

Professor Shelley Santry and Attorney Bethanni Forbush-Moss will hold an information session on the CASE fellowship with the Brandeis School of Law.  This paid fellowship will run from May 2011 to May 2012 and involves representing domestic violence victims in custody cases in Jefferson Family Court.  All law students who have completed 60 hours are eligible to apply.  A limited license to practice law is required. 

The experience you will gain from practicing law and representing clients in court will set you apart from your classmates no matter what type of law you want to practice when you graduate.  Don't let this opportunity pass you by!

Come hear all about it next Tuesday, April 19, in room 171 at noon.
