Just an average week around here. This morning, in addition to a full schedule of classes, a very interesting session took place on the Bosch Fellowship Program. This is a post-graduation program that sends 20 new law graduates to Europe for 9 months to expose them to what sounds like some very interesting work experience in Germany and elsewhere in Europe. At almost the same time, the Louisiana bar association was on campus to respond to questions about bar admission (two of our CDO career counselors will be following up on September 20th with a notarization and Q&A session for students who are getting their bar applications ready). This afternoon, the Deepwater Horizon Lecture Series continues with a session on the Gulf Ecosystem, and later in the afternoon the Civil Law Society holds its first meeting of the semester. Tomorrow at noon, the Federalist Society for Law & Public Policy Studies is sponsoring a lunch and debate addressing "Alternative Theories of Environmental Regulation in the Wake of the BP Oil Spill." Our own Professor Amy Stein will take part, along with Professor John Hasnas of Georgetown University. Tomorrow afternoon, our International Law Society and Public Interest Law Foundation will jointly hold a program featuring a Dutch lawyer (the former head of Amnesty International) who will speak about international refugee and defense law. Later in the evening, our Maritime Law Society is sponsoring a program highlighting the experiences and perspectives of a prominent international maritime lawyer. There's more, but I think you get the idea.
