This week at BLS — watch Food Inc. and join the ELS e-board!

There are two exciting events this week which are sponsored by the Brooklyn Law School Environmental Law Society!

On Thursday, March 24, the Environmental Law Society and the HLPA are co-sponsoring a viewing of Food Inc! The movie will play from 6-8PM in Geraldo’s and food will be served.  Food Inc. is an excellent look into food systems in the US, and raises many provocative questions about sustainability and justice.  Please email nicole.french@brooklaw.edu if you are planning to attend, so that the appropriate amount of food is ordered.  However, RSVP is not required to attend.

Come to the ELS General Body Meeting on Thursday, March 24 from 1-2 PM! In addition to other agenda items, at the meeting we will hold ELECTIONS for next year’s e-board!  Below are descriptions of positions on the e-board — if you are interested in running, please come to the meeting and prepare a short statement.  We will also discuss a variety of exciting programs and initiatives that will be taking place over the next few months.
