Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers – Confidential Assistance – 11/5

Ms. Laurie Besden, Esquire, Deputy Executive Director of Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers (LCL) will be in Klein 519 from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm on November 5th for a “closed door” assistance.  Student can meet with Laurie to talk confidentially about addiction, alcohol issues, mental health disorders, gambling, stress, depression or ethical and bar related questions related to any of these issues.  This is an opportunity to receive help and we encourage you to stop in to meet Laurie.  As always, LCL is also available at any other time.  To reach LCL please call 1-888-999-1941.  Please note that Laurie does not share any information with faculty or administration – this is completely confidential.

Internal Clinical Programs – Spring 2019 Registration Update

We regret to inform you that three of our four in-house clinics (the Elderly Law Project, the Family Law Litigation Clinic, and the Sheller Center Social Justice Lawyering Clinic) are fully enrolled for the spring.  There is still space to register for the Community Lawyering Clinic, and you can do so through the normal course registration process; please contact Professor Rand at spencer.rand@temple.edu with questions about that clinic.  If you are interested in the Family Law Litigation Clinic, Prof. Katz is maintaining a waitlist; you can email her directly at katzs@temple.edu.

For those of you who were hoping to register for one of the fully enrolled clinics for spring 2019, we wanted to apologize and explain.  In the spring of 2018, we piloted a new approach to in-house clinic registration, where students completed an application to be selected to enroll in clinics for Fall 2018 and for priority enrollment for Spring 2019 (rather than limiting clinical registration to once a year).  We were surprised to find that students filled the spring 2019 clinics during the spring 2018 application process. We have learned from this pilot; in the 2019-20 academic year, we will allow students to apply for clinics the following semester only, which will ensure that students will be able to apply to all of the in-house clinics each semester.  Thank you for your patience as we figure out the most effective and student-friendly approach to clinical registration.  Please contact Associate Dean Jaya Ramji-Nogales with any questions (jayarn@temple.edu).

Wellness Update – University Health – Flu Shots Available
