The Moot Court Board will sponsor two teams to participate in the ABA Law Student Division Negotiation Competition. The Regional Competition will take place November 7-8 at Thomas Cooley Law School in Auburn Hills, MI. The National Finals will be held February 5-6 in Orlando, FL. This is a competition that we won in 2007-2008. This competition does not involve writing a brief. Interested 2L, 3L, and 4L students should sign up on the Moot Court Board door by September 18, 2008. Participants must join the ABA Law Student Division and pay a $25 membership fee. Note that the Regional date conflicts with the November MPRE. You may take the MPRE in the spring to avoid this conflict. See flyers around the law school for more information, or visit the competition's website at:
Depending on the level of interest, there may be tryouts and we may request additional information from you.

Wow! You have already completed three weeks in the fall semester. What should you be focusing on right now? Here are some suggestions:
- Now is a good time to make a list of questions to ask your professors. Plan when you will go to see your professors this week to get their assistance. It is easier for a professor to get you on the right path if you ask questions early and often.
- This weekend is the perfect time to get caught up on your outlines if they are still non-existent or barely begun. You have enough material in most courses to be able to determine both the “big picture” of the sub-topics or topics and how the parts fit into that whole.
- Now is a good time to use a monthly calendar to write down all deadlines for papers, projects, mid-terms, or assignments. Plan over the next month when you will work on specific tasks for those longer-range deadlines.
