The program also includes a three-day seminar in Ottawa and Washington, DC,

Legal Help Centre email

hey all,
just received this email and am forwarding it on for anyone interested:

Hello folks. We are offering an open session on volunteer opportunities with our Legal Help Centre, which is opening in January. The LHC is an entity affiliated with UW, which is helping us with space, but we have our own board and are responsible for our own funding.

The LHC intends to provide services to the working poor who need legal assistance but cannot afford it, nor do they usually qualify for legal aid or other subsidies.

The program has few paid staff and will use student volunteers from U of W and U of M. A number of volunteer lawyers will work with students to help provide sevices.

If you want to know more about the program, please come to the session! Or better yet, please encourage your students who have an interest in this area. Obviously this is of interest to budding law students, but also to anyone with a passion for social justice or who just want to help others.

Please forward to your faculty, student groups or use any other mechanism to advise students of this opportunity.

Conference call for papers

As the end of the semester is fast approaching, one thing that it is important to remember is the call for papers for the Thompson Rivers University Philosophy, History, and Politics Conference!

The conference runs from January 13th to 15th of 2011, and includes a Keynote address by Historian Dr John Sandlos from Memorial University in Newfoundland. His speech, "Scholarship and Citizenship: History, Memory, and the Environment in the Public Realm" will be followed by a wine and cheese social. Presentations will be conducted on both Friday and Saturday during the day, with presentations being grouped together by theme. The conference concludes with a Superhero themed banquet on Saturday night, with guest speaker Philosopher Dr Jeff McLaughlin presenting his research “Ten Cent Seductions and Other Comic Book ‘Issues’”.

To attend the conference, formal abstracts must be submitted by no later than November 26th. In addition, students who wish to attend the conference but not present a paper must also register. Please send all submissions to the conference website
