Several students have contacted the IT Department after upgrading their Mac notebook to the newest operating system, Yosemite (OS 10.10). Exam4 does not support this operating system yet. Supported operating systems are posted on a href=/it/exam-software-downloadthe law school's Web site/a and on a href=https://www.exam4.com/org/674Extegrity's download page/a, and Yosemite is not among them. The iDocket/i item that has run every day since Monday, Oct. 13th, has linked to the supported operating systems page, and the Exam4 Essentials flyer, prominently posted and available in the literature racks outside the IT offices, also lists supported operating systems.
Congratulations to Lawlapalooza 2014 champs the Grateful Decedents, featuring 3Ls Mina Khalil and Greg Daly. Thanks to 3L Emily DeVuono, whose band, The Perpetual Motions, played a great set, as well. All eight bands rocked for a wonderful, worthy cause, the Judge Ellen B. Ewing Fund, and this year's event drew a great turnout of students, staff, faculty, and the local legal community. Many thanks to our 2014 Ewing Fellow, Jenn Pence, and our student MCs, Jeff Perkins, Jessica Homer, Caitlin McQueen, Alexandria Bridges, China Hepburn, and James Shockley, for all their help and especially for their enthusiasm!
p The Grateful Decedents, playing rock, reggae rock, blues rock, funk rock, classic rock, and ragnarok, feature 3Ls a href=/user/1527Greg Daly/a on vocals and a href=/user/1517Mina Khalil/a on electric guitar and vocals. The five musicians from the Louisville area started a band just to play Lawlapalooza this year. /p p Once onstage, the virtuosity of each member – the vocal prowess of Greg Daly, the face-melting techniques of guitarists Mina Khalil and Carl Koontz, the hard-hitting basslines of Darren Beckham, and the earthquaking kicks 'n snares courtesy of Jordan Daly – will fuse into a single entity and fill your ears with the truth. You will surely doubt whether you have ever truly used your ears before that moment. /p p And then, once their set is over, each member will slowly fade into transparency like Marty McFly and disappear into the ether forever, never to be seen again. /p p Come out to Lawlapalooza 2014 at the Phoenix Hill Tavern, 644 Baxter Avenue, and support your fellow students ‒ and help them carry away the cherished Lawlapalooza Cowbell Trophy. Doors open at 6:00 PM, and The Grateful Decedents perform at 9:30. Tickets are on sale now in the Law Resource Center, room 272, $10 advance and day of show. /p
p The Perpetual Motions, performing Thursday night at Lawlapalooza, feature 3L a href=/user/1442Emily DeVuono/a on bass and vocals. The band (aka The Joyful Spirits) officially formed in 2011. Comprised of members of Jeffersontown Christian Church, they originally played mostly jazz arrangements of traditional hymns. Now their repertoire consists of anything from Bon Jovi, to Queen, to The Eagles, to The Jackson Five. The Perpetual Motions have played the past several years at AIDS Interfaith Ministries of Kentuckiana's annual pizza fundraiser at Clifton's Pizza (as well as other AIDS Interfaith Ministries events), and has played the past two years at the Middletown Festival. /p p Come out to Lawlapalooza 2014 at the Phoenix Hill Tavern, 644 Baxter Avenue, and support your fellow students #8210 and help them carry away the cherished Lawlapalooza Cowbell Trophy.

pProfessor Enid Trucios-Haynes has been appointed as Director of the Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of Louisville. According to the institute’s mission statement, it advances the work, study and practice of peacebuilding, social justice and violence prevention through the development of innovative educational programs, training, service and research. /pp“I am committed to the values of the MAI [Muhammad Ali Institute] relating to the promotion of peace and social justice. The MAI focuses on initiatives that support human dignity, foster responsible citizenship, further peace and justice and address the impact of violence in local, state, national and international arenas,” said Professor Trucios-Haynes, who, in addition to her new director’s role, also serves on the Metro Louisville Ethics Commission, as Vice Chair of the board of the ACLU of Kentucky and on its Executive and Litigation Review Committees, and directs an Immigration Externship at the Brandeis School of Law. “My longstanding work around the social justice issues in immigration law and policy, as well as international human rights law is clearly related to the mission of the [institute]. The opportunity for collaboration with the Ali Institute is particularly exciting.”/ppOne attractive aspect regarding her work for the Ali Institute, said Professor Trucios-Haynes, is gaining the ability to witness and assist the work of Ali Scholars, whom she called “future leaders in their communities.” In the Ali Scholars Program, the students, among their other duties, are expected to select an expert area related to peace or social justice on which to focus, conduct research on a topic related to his or her expert area, and, finally, design and implement a local, national or international project related to his or her expert area. Part of the program also includes a biannual international trip that helps provide the scholars a global perspective on the lessons learned and matters emphasized during the program; this year, nine UofL students in the Ali Scholars Program visited Rwanda, a country only two decades removed from the genocide that occurred within its borders./ppWith so many great features, staff, and students already, what’s potentially next for the Ali Institute under the direction of Professor Trucios-Haynes?/pp“I hope to expand the presence of the MAI in the university and local community by focusing on local, national and international impact of violence affecting teens,” she said. “I plan to reinvigorate the faculty resource group to work on research projects related to the impact of violence on teens in our local community. At the national level, I hope the MAI can investigate the issues relating to the violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador that has led to the humanitarian crisis of the large scale migration of unaccompanied children and families to the United States.” /p
p class=p1Check out the transformation that has taken place in the Law School courtyards, to be named the Charles Hebel, Jr., and Carol Hebel Courtyards. The Law School community has turned these previously unused and unattractive spaces into environmentally, humanly, and socially sustainable spaces with (mostly) native landscaping and places to relax and enjoy nature. The landscaping and planting work is done, and in the coming weeks, the courtyards will be power-washed and outdoor furniture will be installed. The soil around the pin oak in the west courtyard will be decompacted later this fall, and eventually hostas will be added around it. A huge thanks to our donors, Charles Hebel, Jr., a 1955 graduate of the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law, his wife Carol Hebel, and his son Charles Hebel, III, as well as to two University departments – Physical Plant and Communications/Media – which provided major ongoing support for this project.
