Irish President Mary Robinson will speak tonight (monday April 12) at 7PM at Cubberley Auditorium (map). Her talk, entitled "Human Rights Strategies in the 21st Century," is this year's Stanford Presidential Lecture in the Humanities and Arts. Yours truly wrote the essay "Free and Equal in Dignity and Rights: The Life and Work of Mary Robinson" outlining Robinson's long involvement with human rights issues around the world. I hope you can make it this evening.

The PACER service provides on-line access to U.S. Appellate, District, and Bankruptcy court records and documents nationwide. It's extremely important to lawyers, researchers and students. However, in the minds of many law librarians and govt transparency activists, the system is in need of improvement.
We encourage readers to sign the petition, comment on the ideas and share the petition with your friends and colleagues!
The petition is online at: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/improve-PACER
