Administrative Necessities: 
At the first general body meeting of the semester the remaining board positions were filled.  The new officers are Kayla Skelton for Secretary, Hannah Zhao for Treasurer, and Deona DeClue for 1 L representative.  The board appointed positions still available are social chair, service chair, and Womens' Law Caucus auction representative.  If you are interested in one of the positions you must submit a short statement of intent and why you would be a good candidate to John Henry at jbhenry@wulaw.wustl.edu by Friday September 24th.  For more information on the duties of the board appointed positions see the latest newsletter.  The last administrative topic is dues.  No one likes to pay them, but to make sure you get to have a free lunch at the meetings, we need them.  Dues can be paid to Hannah Zhao (1L mail boxes) and are $10.  If paying by check make sure it is written to Washington University School of Law with PILS in the memo line.

Upcoming Events:
PILS week is coming up with discussions with 2L and 3L students who have experience in the public interest summer internship world.  Also available will be an info session on WashU sponsored externship opportunities and a resume building/writing session cosponsored with PSAB.  PSAB is also holding a round table discussion next Tuesday September 28th at noon.  There will also be a casual lunch with a public interest practitioner.  Finally, Equal Justice Works Conference is scheduled for the end of October, but registration deadlines are quickly approaching.  2L and 3L students have the opportunity to interview with employers at the conference but must register for those opportunities by Friday September 24, 2010.  1Ls cannot interview but are more than welcome at the conference and can speak to employers at informal tabling sessions.  For more info on the conference see the recent newsletter or go to www.EqualJusticeWorks.org to register.  For exact dates and times for all above mentioned activities watch for upcoming newsletters and calendar updates. 

Extras:
Keep an eye on Spivey tracker to see if Dean Spivey is going to locations where you want to work.  If there is a particular employer that you would like him to speak to on behalf of you and your excellent peers, send the organization name with a contact number to Dean Spivey's assistant Kris Kay at
kkay@wulaw.wustl.edu .  Good news for 3Ls looking to move into a public interest law career, the 3 month post graduation stipend program looks like it will be continued next summer.  As soon as the budget is passed there should be more information about exactly how many stipends will be available and what you must do to apply.  Finally, T-shirts should be available soon to purchase, so keep an eye out in the newsletter for ordering information.  PILS makes it better, so make sure everyone knows by wearing a PILS slogan shirt.
