November 13 - Public Affairs Professor Lisa Zanetti and Theatre doctoral student Kate Sinnett will give a presentation, "Using the Theatre of the Oppressed for Conflict Resolution."

REMINDER: REGISTRATION FOR WINTER SEMESTER 2001

STUDENT PHOTOS
Earlier in October some LL.M. students had their photos taken for the class composite (similar to the one of 3L students on the wall outside of the courtroom). Not everyone had the opportunity to participate. We want to schedule a make-up date that will suit everyone's schedule. Figuring that most students are on campus on Mondays, we would try to schedule something from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. on a Monday. Is there a particular week that would work better than others?

Having your photo taken does not cost you anything. You have the opportunity to purchase copies of the photo for your personal use if you so choose. For the photo you should wear professional attire. These will be portraits, so if you want to wear bluejeans or shorts on the bottom with business attire on top, that's just fine. If you are a part-time student from last year and you do not want to have your photo retaken, just let Karen know. We can use the photo from last year.

Please notify Karen Neylon at neylonk@missouri.edu by Tuesday, November 14 to let her know if you have a preference on which week we will schedule the session.
