The PhoenixLaw Library recently published a Guide containing very helpful information on the requirements to acquire a license to practice law in Arizona right after law school.  Access it by clicking here or going to:

The Guide has links to the rules that govern Arizona's licensing requirements as well as links to forms, practice questions, and study aids available in the Library to help you prepare for the Uniform Bar Exam.

Further, the Guide explains the Character and Fitness process and the required Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam.  There is also a list with links to email addresses for the Academic Success Department and a description of the Department's myBar Program.

It is never too early to look into what lies ahead after law school.  The better informed you are, the better equipped you will be to handle what can be a very daunting process.

Unlock your creative and artistic juices!  The West Virginia University Festival of Ideas in conjunction with the West Virginia University College of Law invites law students to submit abstracts for a student poster session.   The conference is titled "Business and Human Rights: Moving Forward, Looking Back." 

This is a unique opportunity to present and display your AWR thesis and conclusion succinctly and creatively on a large poster board.  Usually, conference poster sessions are held in a conference room or exhibit hall.  The posters are displayed and attendees browse the various poster displays.  The session enables scholars to showcase their research and answer questions about their work. 

The top three poster winners will present in a special session and will be invited to convert their posters into papers for potential publication.  Last but definitely not least, the first, second, and third place poster winners will receive a monetary prize.
