Fashion showsupports charity

Phi Alpha Delta at Indiana University Maurer School of Law hosted its annual Fashion Show and Auction Nov. 4 at the Bluebird in Bloomington. Tickets were available for $5 or a donation of three items of gently used professional clothing. The event raised more than $2,000.

Phi Alpha Delta has hosted the event for the past six years, according to the organization’s chapter president, Kristen Cameron, a 3L.

“As a legal fraternity, it’s our mission to provide ‘service to the student, the school, the profession and the community,’” Cameron said via e-mail. “We use a fashion show to raise money because we can kill two birds with one stone – educating law students about event-appropriate attire, and raising money to better the community in which we learn. Each year, the event’s profits are donated to the Shalom Community Center.”

The mission of the center, according to its website, is to help relieve “the plight of people experiencing homelessness and poverty in South Central Indiana. Since access to food, housing, education, and health and human services are fundamental human rights, we seek to meet these basic needs. As a nonprofit resource center, we deliver social services directly and in coalition with other agencies in a respectable, secure environment. We advocate for the most vulnerable among us and promote ties that empower people to develop their potential and to take responsibility for their own lives.”

Phi Alpha Delta, with more than 250,000 living members, is the largest international law fraternity. It is also the largest student group at IU Maurer School of Law, according to the chapter’s website.

International eventsinclude Indy professors

Two Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis professors have traveled internationally this month to speak on various topics.

Professor Karen E. Bravo presented her research on human trafficking at the Second Global Conference on Bullying and the Abuse of Power: From the Playground to International Relations, which took place in Prague, Nov. 8-10.

The event was organized by Inter-Disciplinary.net, a U.K.-based forum for the exchange and interaction of ideas, research, and points of view that address a wide range of issues of concern and interest in the contemporary world.

Bravo presented her research, “Legal Constructions of Personhood and Their Nexus with the Traffic in Human Beings,” during the session on Bullying and Personhood. She also chaired the session on Bullying and Politics.

Bravo was among an international group of attendees from the United Kingdom, Turkey, India, Taiwan, Iran, South Africa, and other countries.

Professor George Edwards was invited to present at London’s Royal Society of International Affairs - Chatham House, the U.K. sister organization of the prestigious U.S. Council on Foreign Relations as part of the Transatlantic Dialogue on International Law. That event took place Nov. 10 - 11.

His presentation was titled “Efficacy of International Law in Protecting Human Rights: Hong Kong, the U.S., the U.K., and Transnational Legal Education.” He was one of two dozen participants invited to join the dialogue, with other participants being officials of the U.S. government, U.K. government, and the European Union, along with representatives of academia and civil society from the U.S., the U.K., and continental Europe.

The Atlantic Council, based in Washington, D.C., co-sponsored the dialogue. The council traces its roots to the creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and to government officials and voluntary organizations interested in political, economic, and security issues.•

  1. Thanks Jim. We surprised ourselves with the first album, so we did a second one. We are releasing it 6/30/17 at the HiFi. The reviews so far are amazing! www.itsjustcraig.com Skope Mag: It’s Just Craig offers a warm intimacy with the tender folk of “Dark Corners”. Rather lovely in execution, It’s Just Craig opts for a full, rich sound. Quite ornate instrumentally, the songs unfurl with such grace and style. Everything about the album feels real and fully lived. By far the highlight of the album are the soft smooth reassuring vocals whose highly articulate lyrics have a dreamy quality to them. Stories emerge out of these small snapshots of reflective moments.... A wide variety of styles are utilized, with folk anchoring it but allowing for chamber pop, soundtrack work, and found electronics filtering their way into the mix. Without a word, It’s Just Craig sets the tone of the album with the warble of “Intro”. From there things get truly started with the hush of “Go”. Building up into a great structure, “Go” has a kindness to it. Organs glisten in the distance on the fragile textures of “Alone” whose light melody adds to the song’s gorgeousness. A wonderful bloom of color defines the spaciousness of “Captain”. Infectious grooves take hold on the otherworldly origins of “Goodnight” with precise drum work giving the song a jazzy feeling. Hazy to its very core is the tragedy of “Leaving Now”. By far the highlight of the album comes with the closing impassioned “Thirty-Nine” where many layers of sound work together possessing a poetic quality.

  2. what a wonderful world we are living, i still doubt this spell caster how he did it!!! i am Tamara Barrow am from USA I am so happy to let the whole word know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage.Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn't help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it becomes. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr.voodoo, she said he uses white magic spells to solve spiritual problems. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 to 3 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 to 3 days of the spell, my husband was confessing different names of woman he has slept with. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislike every other women on earth except me. And am so happy to have him for myself alone.The spell caster’s contact his email at: voodoospelltemple66@gmail.com visit his website on http://drvodoospelltemple.webs.com

  3. Andrew, if what you report is true, then it certainly is newsworthy. If what you report is false, then it certainly is newsworthy. Any journalists reading along??? And that same Coordinator blew me up real good as well, even destroying evidence to get the ordered wetwork done. There is a story here, if any have the moxie to go for it. Search ADA here for just some of my experiences with the court's junk yard dog. https://www.scribd.com/document/299040062/Brown-ind-Bar-memo-Pet-cert Yep, drive by shootings. The lawyers of the Old Dominion got that right. Career executions lacking any real semblance of due process. It is the ISC way ... under the bad shepard's leadership ... and a compliant, silent, boot-licking fifth estate.

  4. Journalism may just be asleep. I pray this editorial is more than just a passing toss and turn. Indiana's old boy system of ruling over attorneys is cultish. Unmask them oh guardians of democracy.
