Announcements and Deadlines

Note that this is your last SLATE until after finals – we wish you the best on finals and we will resume SLATE after finals.

DEADLINE TODAY: Your Voice Matters! - LSSSE Survey: You should have received several emails from the National Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE) over the past few weeks. If you have not already done so, please take a few minutes to complete this survey (refer to the LSSSE emails for the link). We truly value what you have to say and would love to hear all your voices. As an incentive we will have LSSSE randomly pick 4 students who completed the survey to receive a $25 amazon gift card. The survey will remain open until April 15.

Class of 2024 - Dean Gapasin “Checking In” with the 1Ls: First, congratulations on making it through your first year of law school. I hope you take a moment before you begin preparing for your spring finals to take in that accomplishment then use it to FINISH STRONG. I am so incredibly proud of each and every one of you. Second, the “Aid” side of the house, in collaboration with professors, is soliciting applications for the following Continuing Student opportunities that have “top off” scholarships tied to them: International Law
Environmental Law, and CLEAR. We are also soliciting applications to add 1 additional Public Service Scholar to your class. The fourth and final PSS’ new award will replace their current scholarship with the PSS award for the class of 2024. If you have questions about any of these opportunities, please reach out to either myself, Director Zia, or Director Eraca.
