The SEC has opened its applications for 2Ls interested in our 2012 Summer Honors Program. Please include the following listing in any resource or email that you provide to your students. We welcome applications, and we will begin reviewing applications on a rolling basis on September 16, 2011.The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is looking for strong 2L students for its 2012 Summer Honors Program. Students have the opportunity to work for ten weeks during the summer at the SEC's Washington DC headquarters or at one of its eleven Regional Offices. Interns directly support attorneys and other professionals in the regulation and enforcement of the securities markets. Each intern is assigned to one of the SEC’s offices or divisions for a ten-week period. The potential assignments are as varied as the SEC’s responsibilities in regulating the securities markets. We have high expectations for our interns, often assigning them the same work we would give a newly-hired staff attorney who had completed law school. Students who succeed in their assignments assist with tasks such as drafting regulations, reviewing filings, or preparing for interviews and testimony. They spend hours every day with line attorneys, and they support senior executives.
We will begin reviewing applications and hiring on a rolling basis beginning September 16, 2011. We expect to evaluate applications at two-week intervals after that point. The posting will officially close on October 14, 2011.
For more information, look at the SEC’s Web site. There is a link there to the Futurestep Web site used for SEC hiring. Students should look on that page under Current Opportunities / Washington, DC and click “Student Opportunities/Volunteer Opportunities.” From there, they can apply to the DC or regional offices. Any questions regarding the application process should be directed to email@example.com

Feeling a little stressed out? Yoga may help. The Law School will offer free yoga classes starting the Wednesday after Labor Day. The one-hour classes will commence on Wednesday, September 7, at 11:50 a.m. in Room LL77, and be held every Monday and Wednesday at 11:50 until October (at which time we may change the times to make the classes available to others).
Loren Crawford, an experienced instructor, will teach the classes. Loren emphasizes that no prior experience or knowledge of yoga is required or expected (although we do hope that participants realize the difference between yoga, on the one hand, and "yoghurt", "Yogi Berra", and "Yogi Bear" on the other). Complete novices are especially welcome.
The Law School will provide mats. Participants should wear comfortable clothes (feel free to change into shorts or sweats).
As an added incentive for students to participate, every student who attends the first session and signs the attendance sheet will be entered into a drawing for a lavish and glitzy prize.
Hope to see you in Room LL77 on the 7th!

Congratulations! You are beginning your third week of classes. For those of you who are new to law school, things should be getting into a routine now. For those of you who are returning to law school, you probably feel like you never left because it is all so familiar.
You now have a long weekend that you can look forward to. Use this time wisely to improve your future workload as a law student. Three days can be a blessing for law students who have gotten behind in their reading or who are feeling sleep-deprived. This week's tips will provide suggestions for getting the most out of this weekend.
Tip 1: If you are still getting settled in to your apartment or home, try to finish all of those tasks by the end of the weekend. Finish unpacking boxes. Finish organizing your study area. Finish the final decorating touches. Starting Tuesday morning, you want to make law school your priority. Even if you are settled in your home, take advantage of the long weekend to get your errands run and to get your space in order.
