Columbia ACS is gearing up for the first annual Constance Baker Motley Moot Court Competition in Constitutional Law in two weeks, featuring ten CLS ACS qualifiers--remember to wish them luck! Read on for more information about how you can get involved in the moot court, how to run for the Board, and how to register for the fantastic student symposium that the Columbia Federalists are hosting this weekend...
BE A PART OF THE COOLEST EVENT OF THE YEAR!
This year, CLS ACS founded the Constance Baker Motley National Moot Court Competition in Constitutional Law, which kicks off on March 3 with a Happy Hour party at AmCafe. We have a lot to be proud of, and it's time to show off what our chapter has accomplished! Be a part of it all by volunteering to help during the weekend. As a volunteer, you're invited to both of the weekend parties--happy hour on Friday and the awards reception, featuring remarks by Jack Greenberg, on Saturday.
To volunteer, send your name and availability to April Day at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be a VOLUNTEER MEETING on Wednesday, March 1 at 8:00 pm in JG 106. See you there!
HEY YOU! DON'T FORGET TO RUN FOR THE BOARD, TOO!
That means you! If you're excited about joining the leadership of one of the most dynamic student groups in the nation, if you're interested in working with other progressives to bring great events and speakers to Columbia, and if you want to partner with others to strengthen the progressive community here at the law school and across the country, run for our Board! We'll be publishing the list of available positions later in the week. Nominations will be accepted beginning on March 7, and elections will be held at the general membership meeting on April 4. 1Ls AND 2Ls are eligible to run for all positions (except that only 2Ls may run for 3L general rep positions). Please don't hesitate to contact current Board members for more information about specific positions, and as always, send us your questions at email@example.com.
