Dear Mr. Morrison:

Thank you very much forthe information concerning theThe BSL and JD program. I intend to apply for a BSL program, and I also would like to go for the JD. I am a Canadian attorney, but I now live in Maine, USA. I earned a law degree (LLB) form the University of Quebec, Montreal Canada and I became a member of the Quebec Bar, CANADA.

However, I intend to apply in 2013 since I am now on two jobs.


1) When we become students at the AHU, can we exchange and have the assistance of the professor during the session?

2) Since I earned a law degree, can I have advanced standing for some courses?

3) If I go for the JD, do I need to pass the baby barof California because I do not want to practice law in CALIFORNIA? I may consider an academic career.

4) please, note that I have several academic qualifications; I earend three B.A.s and two Master degrees, one in Public Administration and one in International Affairs, all from Canadian universities.

5) Is it possible to order some books in advance so that I can read the materials before apply for the BSL program next year?

6) Any suggestions are welcome.

Thank you

Fitzgerald W.

I have purchased the plane tickets for our trip to Tampa in March.  The confirmation is attached as a web page.

We leave:

March 7

7:10 pm MCI
10:35 pm TPA
Nonstop Flight 306

We return

4:30 pm TPA
6:30 pm MCI
Nonstop Flight 885

Per ticket price is:  387.40

Confirmation Code (If you need to add your FF number):  IVAMC4

As of yet, it is unsure if Bones will be going, so I have not yet purchased his ticket.  If the price for our eighth ticket is higher, I expect that we will all share the difference.  This can be evened out later by Rick.  Is everyone O.K. with that?


Love you too, girl

More than I ever wanted to know about wheelchairs

Hi Max- good to speak to you!

When it comes to assessing a resident for a wheelchair- it is true that one has to look at the basic essential needs of the resident. As well, (and this comes with experience) one has to be able to look beyond the “now” to know that this resdent will require a cat 5 tilt wheelchair.

When it comes to behavioural issues- This becomes more of an issue. For sure the staff just want that resident in a tilt – with a restraint – and problem solved. Well, not so straight forward. First of all- we all know that restraints increase agitation and there is a risk of injury to the resident. I try as much as possible to stay away from them – and think of alternatives.

So a compromise may be as I mentioned  a DYNAMIC TILT wheelchair- ( google Ibiis as an example) where resident can be tilted  ( approx 20 degrees) and still have feet on the ground. When it comes to behavioural issues there is no black r white. IT is all about compromise and ongoing discussion with staff to work out what is best and safest for resident.

I was mistaken when I stated that I never had an issue with any of the staff- I did have one very difficult resident issue-However- with ongoing explanation etc- a compromise was reached= She is using a positional belt as a restraint- but staff are following restraint protocol- and there is consent from DR and POA>

Anyway hope that helps- Feel free to contact me –if you have any other questions.


Maybe we should speak in person

Hi Mike,

I picked your message up on Tom’s voicemail, he’s unfortunately in New York this week and asked me to set up a call between yourself and him.

He’s back in the office next Tuesday. Would there be a good time for you to speak?

If you could kindly let me know, I’d really appreciate it.

Many thanks

Annaliisa T.

Thanks for your help, Gretchen

Hello Mr. Morrison,

My name is Zack W. and I got your email address from a friend of mine, Ms. Gretchen W.  I have recently applied for the Watershed Coordinator position for the city.  I am eagerly awaiting a chance to come in for an interview.  I know that there is a process for screening the applications and these things take time.  When I turned in my application to human resources I could not get a clear answer to whom was giving the interviews for this job.  If that person is not you, I would be very grateful if you could pass this email along to the right person.  I believe that I would be a good fit for the position.

Hi Max,

Hope you are well and enjoying spring.  We have a student interested in studying in Krakow in the Spring 2013 semester.  I was wondering if you would be open to discussing your experience at the University.  If so, I will give her your e-mail to be in touch directly.

Many thanks and all the best,


I have all the time in the world

What do you think about this one? It is around $900 and I am pretty sure Don would pay the difference. We may even bring it down and help set it up!

Dear Mr Morrison,

You and ALU School of Law gave me a chance and I tremendously appreciate and cherish that. I have just been preparing and starting litigation on several of my pending cases nationwide and I believe that it will be prudent for me to return to class attendance at ALU School of Law at this juncture and hence this my expression of it.

I would like to return to Abraham Lincoln University School of Law as soon as possible most preferably with the next class or as is applicable. Advise me as to its possibility by email.

I wait to hear from you only by email as soon a possible as I am currently in San Diego,CA attending to some litigation.
