Thank you to everyone that donated! We could not have met our goal without your support. With your help we were able to provide 22 children with hats, gloves, dental care products, and toys. Thanks for helping us make the holiday season a little brighter for some deserving Haskell Rascals!

We Need Your Help!

For the past two years KU NALSA has held “Toy Drive Tuesdays” in November. KU NALSA members sold coffee and baked goods to raise funds to buy toys, hats, gloves, toothbrushes, and toothpaste for children participating in Haskell Indian Nations University’s Adopt a Haskell Rascal program. With the help of the KU Law community, we were able to raise over $400 each year to "adopt" children. Unfortunately, due to H1N1 concerns we will not be allowed to hold coffee sales this year. In light of this, we have set up a button on our website for online donations. Although you will not get a hot coffee this year, you can still get that warm feeling by donating and knowing that you have helped. We are asking for donations of $2, the same price at which a cup of coffee would have been sold, but will accept any amount you are able to give. Donations will be accepted until December 4th. Hopefully, with your help we can still make the holidays a little brighter for some Haskell Rascals.

November is National American Indian Heritage Month

In 1990, President George Bush signed a resolution declaring November National American Indian Heritage Month. To promote awareness of National American Indian Heritage Month, NALSA has set up displays throughout the law school. “Faces of Indian County” and “Cases of Indian Country” can be seen in the SBA display case in the informal commons. Native American literature is displayed in the library across from the reference desk.

A big thank you to Joe Osborn (2L) for organizing this year's heritage month displays!

NALSA and KU Law Co-Host the Annual Diversity Banquet With Record Breaking Results!

KU NALSA undertook the responsibility of planning the annual Diversity in Law Banquet, put on by the law school each spring. This year, a record-setting 220 guests filled Maceli's, in downtown Lawrence, for a celebration of KU Law diversity programs.

More than 60 students who attended the banquet represented many KU Law organizations such as the BLSA, HALSA, ALSA, the Muslim Law Student Association, the Student Bar Association, OUTlaws & Allies, and the Non-Traditional Student Association. The remaining guests were alumni, local bar associations, firms, judges, tribal council members and gaming commissioners, faculty, staff and friends of the law school.

Guests were able to mingle, enjoy a delicious dinner and hear key note speaker, Sarah Deer (KU Law graduate '01 and KU NALSA alumna) who spoke on diversity in the modern age.

All proceeds from the banquet were directed towards the Diversity Scholarship Fund for KU Law students. This year, the banquet raised more money for scholarships than it ever has before. The banquet continues to grow each year, but this year has been quite an accomplishment for the NALSA members and KU Law administration who planned the huge event. We hope that even more people will be able to attend next year.
