The fall semester is fully underway, as the date for students to make final decisions about class registrations has passed. Student organizations are beginning to meet and offer a wealth of opportunities for LL.M. students to engage in the Wayne Law community, Detroit and the world beyond. I hope that students will take advantage of these active groups to become better acquainted with Wayne Law's students and active in the community.

The beginning of classes is the time to pay special attention to note-taking skills, reading skills and writing skills. All LL.M. students are encouraged to avail themselves of the assistance of Legal Writing Specialist Delores Mayer. She is available for one-on-one meetings to cover everything from note taking to niceties of English grammatical constructions. She can be a great help to students beginning to think about their master's thesis topics or beginning to draft the thesis itself. Successful students will be the ones who use the library and legal writing resources to the best advantage.

Welcome, again, to Wayne Law, and best of luck as the semester proceeds.
