ANNOUNCEMENTS, EVENTS, AND DEADLINES, FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Some Online Library Resources Will Be Down Tuesday Morning, 2/3

On the morning of February 3, the Library’s catalog will be down as part of the Sierra upgrade project.  This will mean no access to the catalog, renewals, “My Library Account”, or access to library databases from home (TWEN, Westlaw, Lexis and study room reservations will not be affected).  It is expected that the system will be up again by 10:00 a.m., but may take longer.  During this time, librarians are available to assist you in finding items you may need.

The University Library and the McGeorge Law Library are joining together to adopt the Sierra integrated library system and the Encore Duet discovery system.  These systems will provide an integrated library presence, mobile functionality, easier searches, and integration with the University’s learning management system.  The upgrade project is expected to be completed in July.

Punjabi Interpreter Needed for the Legal Clinics

The Elder & Health Law Clinic is seeking a student interpreter for the Punjabi language. Please contact Brian Geremia at bgeremia@pacific.edu. 

The McGeorge 1L Moot Court Competition

As a 1L, join the competition to gain your first exposure to appellate advocacy. Practice your brief writing and oral argument skills with meaningful feedback from third and fourth year Moot Court Honors Board members, professors, and judges. The same skills will help translate to success in GLS II next year. Moreover, compete for the chance to be a 2L research assistant for the Moot Court Team. Titles will be awarded for best briefs, overall best advocate, and best oralist in the competition. 

The facts of the Moot Court Competition are coordinated with Mock Trial to allow 1Ls to compete in both competitions! The competition will be run as close to an actual Moot Court Competition as possible with the problem being released by e-mail to participants that signup in the courtroom . Sign-ups will be held 2-5, the brief is due March 2, and oral arguments will be held March 12 – 14. 

The problem focuses on the search of Jackie Owens’ cell phone text messages. Mr. Owens will have been convicted of murder by the time of the Moot Court Competition and it will be up to this year’s 1L class to help the Supreme Court of Midlands determine if they will release a murderer to protect cell phone privacy.

Diversity Week | Movie Screening of Soft Vengeance: Albie Sachs and the New South Africa

5:00 – 7:00 PM | Classroom H
Soft Vengeance is a film about Albie Sachs, a lawyer, writer, art lover and freedom fighter, set against the dramatic events leading to the overthrow of the apartheid regime in South Africa. Shining a spotlight on Albie’s story provides a prism through which to view the challenges faced by those unable to tolerate a society founded on principles of slavery and disempowerment of South Africa’s majority black population. As a young man, Albie defended those committed to ending apartheid in South Africa. For his actions as a lawyer, he was imprisoned in solitary confinement in Cape Town, tortured through sleep deprivation and forced into exile. In 1988 he was blown up by a car bomb set by the South African security forces in Maputo, Mozambique, which cost him his right arm and the sight of one eye, but miraculously he survived and after a long year of rehabilitation in England, he recovered.  Returning to South Africa following the release of Nelson Mandela, Albie helped write the new Constitution and was then appointed as one of the first 11 judges to the new Constitutional Court, which for the past 20 years has been insuring that the rights of all South Africans are afforded protection.” Questions: Tracy Simmons at tsimmons@pacific.edu

McGeorge students have an exciting opportunity to attend a Subdivision Map Act seminar offered by a McGeorge alum, Christina Cortino, and her firm Harrison, Temblador, Hungerford & Johnson LLP and the North State Building & Industry Association.  The seminar is all day, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., includes lunch, and will cover: legal parcels, exemptions, maintaining the life of a tentative map, negotiations, the development process, and vested rights. 

The course is intended for individuals and professionals involved in all phases of the development process – builders, developers, engineers, planners, consultants, title officers, agency staff, and anyone desiring a refresher on the topic.

Please contact Lexi Howard via email at l_howard1@u.pacific.edu by Monday, 2/2 if you can attend – tell me your full name, which date (Feb. 5 or 6), email address, and phone number.  I’ll take care of your registration and respond to you with confirmation.
