are lucky as a Law Society to have such a posi- tive relationship with our Law Faculty who are so dedicated to improving the student experience.

Finally, we were pleased to see the Monash Jessup team placing third in Australia. Whilst tantalizingly close to qualifying for the Washing- ton round of the competition, it was a fantastic achievement and we are extremely proud of our students.

Should any ILSA member wish to discuss any of the above, please email me at president@mo-

vironmental Moot Court Competition and the Rocky Mountain Regionals of the Philip C. Jes- sup International Moot Court Competition. Each competition brought in more than 20 teams from across the nation and required many student and community member volunteers to act as bailiffs and judges. Competitors and coaches from both competitions expressed their gratitude and satis- faction to DU and all of its volunteers and all the volunteers were extremely impressed with the skill of all the competitors.

The University of Denver ILSA Chapter has had another busy and event-filled semester. The se- mester began as always with a “hot-topic” lunch lecture. This semester’s lunch, entitled Nelson Mandela: His Life, His Work, and His Legacy, brought in many students, faculty and staff in- terested in learning, not only more about Nelson Mandela, but about what South Africa and the rest of the world needs to do in order to continue Nelson Mandela’s legacy. As students also start- ed the semester trying to decide what to do over the summer, the DU Chapter brought in Profes- sor Bali from Santa Clara Law to discuss many of the available study abroad and international externships available. This event not only had a great turn out, but also resulted in at least three students figuring out their summer plans!

After starting the semester out strong, it was time for the DU Chapter to show its commitment to students from across the country. DU hosted both the 18th Annual Stetson International En-

The DU Chapter continued the semester by hosting three additional lunches. The first, The International Criminal Justice Movement: Past, Present, Future – and Where the U.S. Fits into it All, brought in Kip Hale from the American Bar Association. The second lunch brought in Kristi Disney from Sustainable Development Strate- gies Group. She offered both insight into the ini- tiatives the Group works on and potential intern- ship opportunities for students.

As it gets closer to the end of the semester and students are more worried about job prospects, the DU Chapter was aware and brought in four attorneys for an International Law Career Panel. The attorneys featured have all had very different careers and experience and had great wisdom to share with students. With a former ICC prosecu- tor, an in-house attorney, a partner from a law firm and a recent grad working for One Earth Fu- ture, many areas of international law were repre- sented. In addition to this, the DU Chapter also brought in Ralph Lake, the former general coun- sel for Promus hotels, to speak with students about his career and how students can make the most out of their careers.

To wrap up the semester, the DU Chapter has four final events coming. First, the final event in the Rwanda 20 Years Ago Today series, which is co-sponsored by ILSA, will take place on Wednes- day, April 2nd. The Rwanda 20 Years Ago Today series is a University of Denver initiative which
