 1) First Session option will be before Kate Lassiter’s class at 5:30 PM on Thursday, March 22nd in the IPS conference Room (LT Suite 630.) 
2) Second Session option on Thursday, March 22nd, at 7:00 PM in the IPS Conference room on Thursday March 22nd.
3) Third session option –  Saturday, March 24 in the Corboy Law Center, Room # 325 at 12:15 PM.  
Here’s hoping that your interest has been raised and that you will be able to attend one of these information sessions.
