Court of sports

Athletic talent can only take people so far if they don't know their rights!

All interested students are invited to hear Toronto sports lawyer Gordon Kirke give a lecture in the Moot Court Room of the Josephine Spencer Niblett Law Building tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.

Kirke will be discussing many legal issues related to sports including sexual abuse and harassment in hockey based on his book Players First. He is the second speaker in a series of lectures set up by the distinguished speakers committee.

"Kirke was involved in the case of the NHL hockey player who was abused by his coach, in addition to other similar investigations," said Christine Tabbert, secretary of the Legal Society.

There will be a reception to follow in the Closed Lounge of the law building.

The business of finding a job

Students interested in a career in the business field have the opportunity to pick up some pointers today at the Richard Ivey School of Business.

Ivey PhD candidate Nick Bontis will be presenting a workshop targeting first-year Masters of Business Administration and Honours Business Administration students entitled, "What recruiters really want to know: dynamite resumes and cover letters" at 9:40 a.m. and 11:20 a.m. in Rm. 40 of the business school.

"The seminar will focus on how to get a job in our current market and how to present yourself in the best possible light in order to be the person who gets accepted for a job," Bontis said, adding the seminar is part of Ivey's career development program.

Furnishing the dorm

Students looking to compliment the plant they purchased in the University Community Centre a couple of weeks ago do not need to look further than the annual Imaginus poster sale.

"There are dozens of new wildlife, photography, movie and art posters, as well as glossy and matted prints available," said Imaginus sales representative Sue Carpani, adding prices at the sale are below suggested retail. To avoid the last-minute rush and sellouts, Carpani recommends to come in the early part of the week.

There are also a variety of do-it-yourself frames in black, gold or silver, available in a range of sizes, she said.

However, if do-it-yourself is not your style, Artifex, located in the basement of UCC, offers a different solution. Running in conjunction with the poster sale, Artifex is offering a 15 per cent discount on all framing, dry-mounting and laminating until Sept. 30.

Artifex will have a booth set up all week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. beside the poster sale which runs Mon. to Thurs. from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Fri. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
