It is important for law students to master the basics of personal financial management. Basic principles of personal finance are not difficult to learn and apply, but they may seem so because they are rarely explained in a simple, straightforward manner.

This presentation will provide an overview of the fundamentals of personal financial management for law students with little or no prior exposure to the subject. Topics covered will include strategies to track income and expenses, repayment loan options and establish budget priorities including common mistakes to avoid.


force820x400_2MFA director Malika Oyetimein will stage Kia Corthron’s explosive socio-political drama about three generations of African American police officers torn apart by the very organization to which they have dedicated their loyalty and working lives. Corthron tells an unflinching and deeply felt story of tragically flawed human beings trying to do the right thing in difficult circumstances and getting it very, very wrong.

As timely now as it was when first produced in 2001, Force Continuum stands as a potent theatrical criticism of modern day police brutality and the relationship between police and the black community.
