     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!

    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

And are we headed for another Bush v. Gore? Join a panel of experts for an open discussion of (some of) the many ways the law and lawyers could have a lot to say about what happens in November.

    Latham's Pro Bono: Cory Maples Case

    INVITATION

    Latham’s Pro Bono Program: A Cornerstone of Our Culture

    Cory Maples Case

    Thursday, October 15, 2020 | 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. Eastern | Zoom Webinar

    Hear from Elana Nightingale Dawson, an associate in Latham’s Connectivity, Privacy, and Information Practice, as she shares her experience representing Cory Maples pro bono. Mr. Maples is a prisoner on death row at Holman Correctional Facility in Alabama. In 2012, Latham won a reversal before the Supreme Court of an Eleventh Circuit decision denying Mr. Maples relief despite a mailroom mix-up caused by his prior lawyers that left him unable to further pursue his claims. After another win before the Eleventh Circuit, Latham—with a team led by Elana—represented Mr. Maples during a week-long evidentiary hearing aimed at showing that Mr. Maples received ineffective assistance of counsel during the penalty stage of his capital trial. Tune in to hear the details of the case, and why the presiding judge has deemed it as “one of the hardest cases she has ever faced”.

    To RSVP, please complete this registration form by Wednesday, October 14. https://surveyext.lw.com/Survey.aspx?s=978d42b0d4e647ae881350cf7f7d60df
