Update from the Legal Studies Dept.

— Elizabeth Constable has been appointed as the student member on the Legal Studies program’s Advisory Council for the 2014-15 academic  year.  The Council meets once per semester, usually on a Friday morning, for about an hour.  The Council always has a student member, so they can get the student perspective. The Council members are public members, paralegals, and managers.


— Liz Wandersee, Hilbert Library and Wendy Edson, Legal Studies, are participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday, June 14 to support breast cancer research. Please consider  pledging a donation or joining them. Go to www.komenwny.org for details.


— Paralegal students in Professor Kristin Wheaton’s LW 407 Trial Techniques  for Paralegals course will conduct a mock trial at the Hamburg Town Court on Monday, May 5, 2014 at 6:15 PM.  The use of the courtroom enhances the mock trial experience for the students and provides a professional, real-life environment for their presentations.
