State of Incarceration Summit

October 28, 2020 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

The ASU Center for Child Well-Being in collaboration with the Academy for Justice, the School of Social Transformation, the Center for Justice and Social Inquiry, and the Center for Imagination of the Borderlands, are hosting a virtual State of Incarceration Summit on Wednesdays throughout October focusing on: the carceral state as a system, education, supportive programs and policies as well as advocacy.  We have three very exciting keynotes:  Sylvia A. Harvey, author of The Shadow System: Mass Incarceration and the American Family,  Chesa Boudin, District Attorney of San Francisco, and just announced today, Noel Candelária, Secretary/Treasurer for the National Education Association. 

Each year it becomes more apparent that we need to examine incarceration in totality with focus on not just the impact of incarceration, but provide space across disciplines to hold conversations on the carceral state as a whole from disproportionality, systems, race, and economics.

10/12 – Virtual ABA Site Visit Team Meeting w/ Students

October 12, 2020 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

ABA Site Visit Team Meeting w/ Students – Monday, October 12 The ABA site visit team wants to hear from you on Monday, October 12 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Every seven years, the ABA sends a team to visit each school as part of its accreditation process. The goal is to ensure compliance with the ABA Standards that govern all ABA-accredited law schools. This visit was originally scheduled for March, but the impacts of COVID-19 delayed the visit. They have rescheduled the visit for October 12-14 and it will be conducted remotely via Zoom. 

One component of the visit is an open meeting for students to provide feedback. The team, which consists primarily of academics from other law schools, wants to hear from you on how you think things are going. There is no set agenda. We know that this visit is during fall break, but it would be great if you could take an hour and participate in a Zoom call with the team.

This is a virtual meeting. A Zoom link will be sent to all registrants. RSVP here by Monday, October 5.

How to Be Your Best in a Zoom Environment

September 30, 2020 @ 12:15 pm 1:15 pm

Career Services, the Trial Advocacy Student Group, and Snell & Wilmer would like to you a webinar on how to successfully prepare for an interview or meeting on Zoom!

Due to the current circumstances, many employers are reassessing how they conduct interviews and, in many cases, this means transitioning from the traditional in-person interview to virtual interviews. In this webinar, Snell & Wilmer attorneys, Craig O’Loughlin and Lauren Munsell, will share practical tips and advice on how to make the most of your Zoom interviews and meetings. This webinar is not focused on how to use Zoom, rather how to set up your space for an interview, what to do if your Wi-Fi goes out in the middle of the interview, or the dog barks. 

We are using Snell’s Zoom Video. Please note after you register, your Zoom Invite will say the session starts at noon as that is the time allowed by zoom. This event is actually scheduled to start at 12:15 p.m.
