Newsworthy UM Law Hosts Second-Annual HBCU Law Preview Day The University of Mississippi School of Law held its second annual HBCU Law Preview Day in September to provide prospective law students with a sneak peek of law school and the application process. This year, the event was expanded beyond the state of Mississippi to include HBCUs from across the South. Nine pre-law advisors and 78 students attended the event from Alcorn State University, Grambling State University, Jackson State University, Lane College, Mississippi Valley State University, Oakwood University, Rust College, Southern University of New Orleans, Tuskegee University and University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. Throughout the course of the day, prospective students attended a law school class taught by UM Law Professor Larry Pittman, and an LSAT crash course led by a representative from the Law School Admissions Council. The students also attended a panel discussion on diversity, equity and inclusion in the legal profession, sponsored by Wise Carter, and a session on the Diversity Pipeline Program sponsored by Forman Watkins. 2022 LL.M. Grad Francesca Morschbach Wins International Writing Award Francesca Morschbach, who graduated with an LL.M. from the University of Mississippi School of Law in August, is this year’s winner of the Constance O’Keefe Aviation Law Writing Award, presented by International Air Transport Association Legal Symposium in Paris in October. The award is given in memory of Constance O’Keefe, former General Counsel of IATA. The award allows students to gain industry recognition in aviation law and network with leading industry professionals. Morschbach’s paper, Passenger Name Records (PNR) After the Schrems II Judgment, illustrates how the judgment from a Court of Justice of the European Union case solidified the court’s approach for EU data protection. PNRs are included in that data, and are used in mechanisms of the aviation industry when protecting the public.     9
