The AABANY Law Review is pleased to announce its inaugural Student Note Competition. One student note will be selected for publication in the Fall 2013 issue, and the winner will be awarded a $300 cash prize. Our hope is that the timing of the competition will encourage those students who are writing relevant seminar papers this spring to satisfy their course requirement while also creating an entry for the competition. Students who have written papers in the past are also welcome to submit them for consideration if they have not been previously published. The deadline to submit a piece for consideration is Monday, June 24, 2013. Statements of intent, inquiries, and submissions should be sent to email@example.com.

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs in partnership with Coro New York Leadership Center is proud to announce the launch of recruitment for the2013 Immigrant Civic Leadership Program (ICLP). ICLP is a signature project of One NYC One Nation, a citywide civic engagement initiative bringing together philanthropic, public and community leadership to strengthen New York City’s immigrant communities.
ICLP enhances the capacity of people working to lead change in immigrant communities across the five boroughs. Using NYC as a classroom, ICLP participants gain a deeper understanding of policy and decision making in the city, the skills to effectively lead change in their organizations and communities, and a network of engaged and influential alumni to support them in reaching their goals. Approximately 20 active and engaged community members working to bring about improvement and change to the city’s immigrant communities are competitively selected to participate each year.
Download this year’s program brochure here. To learn more about ICLP and the online application visit http://www.coronewyork.org/corony/apply_to_iclp/. Applications are due by June 21, 2013. If you have specific questions, please contact Cristina Marquez: email@example.com / 212.248.2935 Ext. 320.
The Litigation Committee celebrated its first Happy Hour for 2013 at The Stag’s Head on May 9 in midtown on the East Side. After the rain cleared, a group of loyal and enthusiastic members, both old and new, straggled in and enjoyed an evening of friendly banter. It was a good way to spend a beautiful spring evening in Midtown.
