|Last spring the library's book repair clinic was such a hit that library staff have extended the clinic this fall to a full week! Students and faculty are encouraged to drop off any damaged books between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. any day between November 16th and 19th. Books can be left at the library's circulation desk. Allow 24 hours for repairs to be made and for glue to dry. Library staff will email you once your book is ready for pick up.|

November 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Nuremberg trials. When the Nuremberg trials are mentioned most people are aware of the first trial. The one which included Herman Goerring and Rudolf Hess. This trial of accused war criminals was held by the International Military Tribunal (IMT). The IMT proceeding, between November 14, 1945 and October 1, 1946, was held under the aegis of an international court with judges and prosecutors from the United States, Great Britain, the Provisional Government of France, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The proceedings were conducted in four languages with simultaneous voice translations and documents translated into four languages. The IMT prosecuted those major war criminals who were the leaders of the Nazi regime.

This month's Law Dawgs are Mattie and Stella. They live with LL.M. student Deborah Nogueira-Yates. Mattie is an Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix who came from a goat farm in Madison County. She understands both English and Portuguese. Stella is a rescue from Athens-Clarke County. She is the sweetest dog ever! She can make friends with anyone and any other animal. Stella will be one year in January 2016. They are always together and at dinner time, neither one will eat from her bowl until the other has food too!
All members of the Law School Community (students, faculty and staff) are invited to submit a photo for possible selection as the Law Dawg. The featured entry for each issue will be selected at random from all entries received. Please note that honorary Law Dawgs (i.e. those of the feline, equine, porcine, avian, etc. persuasion) are eligible as well. Please send your Law Dawg photo(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
