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.•

  2. A traditional parade of attorneys? Really Evansville? Y'all need to get out more. When is the traditional parade of notaries? Nurses? Sanitation workers? Pole dancers? I gotta wonder, do throngs of admiring citizens gather to laud these marching servants of the constitution? "Show us your billing records!!!" Hoping some video gets posted. Ours is not a narcissistic profession by any chance, is it? Nah .....

  5. He must be a Rethuglican, for if from the other side of the aisle such acts would be merely personal and thus not something that attaches to his professional life. AND ... gotta love this ... oh, and on top of talking dirty on the phone, he also, as an aside, guess we should mention, might be important, not sure, but .... "In addition to these allegations, Keaton was accused of failing to file an appeal after he collected advance payment from a client seeking to challenge a ruling that the client repay benefits because of unreported income." rimshot
