Are you interested in the law? Are you a paralegal student planning to enter the legal profession? Would you like to know more about how the Pennsylvania court system works?

If so, don't miss a special NCC event: "Ask the Judges," held tomorrow (Tuesday, September 1), from 7-9 p.m. in Lipkin Theatre (Kopecek Hall building, Main Campus). Panelists, all judges from the Pennsylvania Superior Court, will show a short film about the Commonwealth court system, then take questions from the audience. For more details, go to the Northampton NOW Web site.
