Please join the UofL Alumni Association, the Law School, and the Law School Alumni Council for the University of Louisville Law Clinic Open House and Reception.
The focus of this evening will be to showcase the University of Louisville Law Clinic, which opened in fall 2008 and became the first law clinic in the history of legal education in Louisville. This clinic enables the law school to transform its entire program of education in a revolutionary fashion. It refocuses legal education as a primarily (or even exclusively) classroom-based endeavor into an active, hands-on enterprise of learning by doing.
The Law Clinic epitomizes the University of Louisville's commitment to preparing its graduates for instant and lasting impact in the workplace and the community at large. There simply is no better way to learn the law than handling real cases and representing real clients. The Law Clinic assigns students to individual clients and individual cases. Those students have been handling those matters under the careful supervision of Professor Lars S. Smith.
Be sure to read Professor Smith's latest update on the clinic.
The reception will feature hors d'oeuvres compliments of Carrabba's Italian Grill, a bourbon tasting compliments of Woodford Reserve, and wine, beer, soft drinks and live music compliments of Middleton Reutlinger and Stites & Harbison.
