The MacMillan Law Library and the Center for Public Service are excited to bring you the first ever Researching Judges Workshop at Emory Law! Assistant Law Librarian for Outreach, Avery Le, will provide a tutorial of Lexis Litigation Profile Suite, Westlaw Profiler, and Bloomberg Law Litigation Analytics to research judicial statistics including motion rulings, appeal outcomes, and ruling histories. Avery will also introduce other online and print resources for researching a judge’s biography and career timeline. This is your opportunity to learn how these tools can assist you in applying and interviewing for judicial clerkships and interpreting judges’ ideologies and perspectives. It is highly recommended that you bring your laptop to the workshop.

Admission and Career Services Swap Locations
Pay attention to a new layout for the Office of Enrollment Management & Student Services on the first floor of Gambrell Hall. As part of our continued efforts to provide seamless, student focused services, the Career Center and Admission offices have swapped locations. You will be greeted by staff at an integrated welcome center adjacent to the student mail files on the first floor. This new office structure will provide a single point of contact for efficient and personalized student service.  
Turner Environmental Law Clinic 20th Anniversary Conference
The Turner Clinic will host a conference on the Future of Environmental Law -- Where the next 20 Years Will Lead Us. The celebration will feature a keynote address from Lois Gibbs. Forty years ago, and with no prior experience in community activism, Gibbs organized her community in a battle against the local, state, and federal governments to clean up Love Canal. Her efforts resulted in the evacuation of over 800 families, and spurred the creation of the Superfund, forever changing environmental law. RSVPs are required whether attending full or partial day.

Martin Luther King Day Celebration Lecture
Thursday, January 24, 2019, 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m., Tull Auditorium
Robert M. Franklin Jr., James T. and Berta R. Laney Professor in Moral Leadership, presents “Revisiting Dr. King’s Theory of Love, Power, and Justice.”

Dr. King wrote a dissertation at Boston University focused, in part, on the thought of theologian Paul Tillich. He often carried a copy of Tillich’s “Love, Power, and Justice” in his briefcase, and drew upon it in his own, “Letter From Birmingham Jail.” Just as King continually refined these concepts during times of crisis, we should revisit King's life and thought as we face a milieu of polarization and social crisis.
Student Worker Job Posting 
The Office of Admission is hiring student workers to work 5-10 hours per week. Duties include meeting with admitted and prospective students, giving campus tours, assisting with events, answering phones, and communicating with students via email. Other duties may arise.

Student workers act as representatives of the Office of Admission—answering questions about admission requirements, student life, housing, Emory Law programs, etc. Spring positions run from January 16, 2019 to April 22, 2019. There is an option to continue working part-time during the summer and the next academic year, based on performance and work flow. Pay is $9.50/hour. 

We encourage students from all programs (JD, JM, LLM) within the law school to apply. Previous volunteer admission experience is preferred, but not required. Interested? Please email your resume and a short description of your experience/interest to Gillian Harris, Admission Advisor. Please apply by Friday, January 11 at 5:00 p.m.
