New Article: Native American Women and the Law

One of this year's LL.M. candidates, Liz Gunsaulis had the fantastic opportunity of co-authoring an article with School of Law Dean Stacy Leeds.  Dean Leeds is a recognized legal scholar, writing on property, natural resources and American Indian law.  Liz worked on the article with Dean Leeds while she was a full time student completing her LL.M. work - it was a busy year!

The article was just published:  Resistance, Resilience, and Reconciliation:  Reflections on Native American Women and the Law, 34 St. Thomas L. Rev. 303-324 (2012).

Congratulations to Liz, and to Dean Leeds.

Harvard Food Policy Career Guide

I am pleased to link to a very helpful resource developed through a partnership between the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic and the Harvard Food Law Society.

It is the Food Law & Policy Career Guide.

"If you are a law student, emerging young professional, interested food policy advocate, or someone simply searching to learn more about what food policy entails, these resources from across the nation (and world) to help you find your next job, volunteer position, or internship in the world of food policy."

Appreciation is expressed to Emily Broad Leib, the Senior Clinical Fellow in the Harvard Law School Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation and Director of the Center's Food Law and Policy Clinic for her work on this guide and for allowing us to post it.

Update from Arkansas

Weather seems to be a central part of the discussion all over the country this summer.  From the storms in the northeast to the dry conditions and fires in the west, it's been quite a summer -  and it's only the first week in July!

Thanks to email, Facebook, and Twitter, we have been able to keep in touch with our alumni, and I have gotten some weather/storm reports and assurances that everybody was doing okay.  It's really nice to hear from and to keep in touch with our alums -

As I reported to Baylen Linnekin in our email exchange today, here in Arkansas, we are just hot and dry. It's not dramatic weather, and it would not be unusual for an Arkansas summer, except it's just way too early.  And, it has been really hot and very dry.  Record breaking. We live out in the woods south of town, and as has been our practice in the past when it gets dry, we are putting out water and some extra food for the wildlife. The creeks and ponds on our property have dried up, so our lawn is the place to be every day. Early evening is the active time -  happy hour, I suppose.  Baylen suggested that I really needed to take some photos, so today I did.  They are posted below.  Tomorrow, I will try to get pictures of the possum and wood chuck!
