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

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Some Online Library Resources Will Be Down Tuesday Morning, March 10

On the morning of Tuesday, March 10, 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 sometime between 10:00 a.m. and noon, but may take longer. During this time, librarians are available to assist you in finding items you may need.

Discover UNESCO World Heritage Sites with Pacific McGeorge

Study in the beautiful Spanish colonial city of Antigua, Guatemala and/or the heart of Europe in Salzburg, Austria’s historic Old Town. Apply here!

 

2015 Summer Externships in Africa

No more boring externships, thank you very much. Instead, 7 or 10-week externships for academic credit are available this summer from June 1 or 22 through Aug 7, 2015, in Rwanda or Lesotho at the Rwanda Development Board, Rwanda Law Reform Commission, Judiciary of Lesotho or the Women and Law in South Africa NGO in Lesotho.  Get in touch this instant with Professor Jarrod Wong in his office or at jwong@pacific.edu for more information.

New Anti-Virus Software Available

Please be advised that a new version of the school’s anti-virus program is available for download. The older version is no longer being automatically updated.   If you are currently using the school’s anti-virus program please download the new version. For information on how to download the new version click here. If you need assistance, please come by the computer lab located in the library.

Seniors: Bar Simulation Day
On Saturday, March 14, 3D and 4E students have the opportunity to participate in the Pacific McGeorge Bar Simulation Day.  This simulation will mimic the real bar exam, with three essay questions in the morning, a break, and a performance test in the afternoon.  Everyone who writes this simulation also will receive individualized feedback on each answer, and the chance to attend a review session.
Time management and endurance are vital to bar preparation, and simulated writing practice is the single biggest key to success this summer. This is your chance to assess your skills before you even graduate, so don’t miss this opportunity to start down the path to being ONE AND DONE!  Seniors, please check your Pacific email account for further details and copies of the legal rules to study in advance, or check the McGeorge Bar Prep Blog.
