Military Bar Association (MilBar): Write a Holiday Card to a Deployed Troop!

During this holiday season, we are fortunate enough to spend time with our loved ones, but others are not so lucky. This year, thousands of deployed troops will be missing their families as they serve our country. From 18-21 November, MilBar is giving you the opportunity to express your gratitude and wish a deployed troop a happy holiday season by filling out a card which will be sent to them, wherever they are. Stop by our table in the Writs from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., write a card and enjoy some candy! We are looking forward to spreading some holiday cheer with you to some of those who need it the most! Contact: MilBar President Erika Plumadore

If you would like to submit your interest to be a notetaker for the School of Law, please complete this form. If you have any questions about being a notetaker, please contact
