Just a reminder: if you are interested in natural resources law and might want to apply for a scholarship from the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, the deadline is the end of this month. In spite of the name of organization, your interest need not involve mining; Floridians interested in water and land use law would be welcome applicants.

Good luck to those of you who apply,
