    Flu Shots

    Bell, Sherry R Thu 4/30/2020 11:27 AM

     LAW-SpecialEvents Hi, Christine, We always must wait until we’re allowed to see WCP/SAC room availability, before we can finalize flu shot campaign dates, so thanks for your patience. We’re proceeding as if all will be “normal” in the fall. Fingers crossed, right? May we confirm these rooms for the two days highlighted in yellow in your email below? We can free up all other days. We hope we can schedule our four-week campaign at the same time as past years. This means the Law School clinic would be on 10/1. However, in the event of delays, we’d also like to confirm/hold the rooms on 10/27, to ensure we can get flu shots to your folks. Are we able to confirm both Townes Hall Atrium and the Fleming Room at the times noted on 10/1 and 10/27 below? We will free up one or the other dates as we near the fall and have more information. I’ll keep my eyes open for your confirmation email and any next steps on our part. Thanks! Sherry Bell CMHC/UHS Public Information Team 512/925-7524 From: LAW-SpecialEvents Sent: Monday, February 24, 2020 10:47 AM To: Bell, Sherry R ; Perkinson, Catherine ; LAW-SpecialEvents Subject: RE: Availability of Townes Hall Atrium and the Fleming Room for Flu Shots Hi Sherry, I have tentatively reserved the Atrium and the Fleming Room for the Flu Shots on the dates below that you requested. Please let me know, when you are able, which dates to confirm. Thanks so much! Date Day Townes Hall Atrium 8am – 5pm Fleming Room 10:30 – 5pm If we can’t get it from 10:30 – 5:00 Fleming Room from 10:30 – 1pm

    Date Day Townes Hall Atrium 8am – 5pm Fleming Room 10:30 – 5pm If we can’t get it from 10:30 – 5:00 Fleming Room from 10:30 – 1pm

    Shortlisted: A Discussion with Authors

    A Discussion with the Authors of Shortlisted: Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court

    The Center for Women in Law will hold a panel discussion with the authors on October 5, 2020 from 4:00-5:15 pm CT.

    Shortlisted: Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court tells the inspirational and previously untold history of the nine women considered–but not selected–for the United States Supreme Court.

    “This fascinating book reconstructs a chapter of women’s history that has been hiding in plain sight: the numerous qualified women whose names were floated for the Supreme Court but who never got there. Just as they were overlooked, so have their individual stories been — until now.”

    — Linda Greenhouse, New York Times contributing columnist

    This event is free and open to the public.
