Arts First volunteers are needed for May festivities

Organizers of Arts First – Harvard’s four-day celebration of music, theater, dance, and visual arts – seek volunteers for the Performance Fair on May 7. Stage managers, backstage crew members, and audience greeters are all needed. No experience is necessary for many of the jobs, and the entire University community is welcome. Volunteers will receive an Arts First T-shirt and will be invited to a party at the conclusion of the fair.

EALS accepting submissions

The East Asian Legal Studies (EALS) program of Harvard Law School (HLS) is now accepting submissions for the Yong K. Kim ’95 Memorial Prize, which recognizes the student who has made the most significant contribution to fostering U.S.-East Asian understanding at HLS. The most important factor in determining the winner is the authorship of a paper concerning the law or legal history of the nations and peoples of East Asia or concerning issues of law as it pertains to U.S.-East Asia relations, however, other contributions made to the intellectual life of EALS and the Law School more generally will also be considered.

Submissions can be written in conjunction with a course, seminar, or independent study project at HLS. The prize includes a cash award and will be announced at Commencement. Two copies of the submitted work should be delivered to the EALS office (Pound Hall 426, HLS) by April 29, and should include the student’s name, School, class level, e-mail address, and phone number.
