When new students arrive at the Law School, they bring with them the richness of their experiences. In turn, the faculty, staff, and adminstration of the Law School promise our students an experience that will transform them for good. Over the course of a thousand days, our students will find innumerable moments of inspiration. From a moment of Socratic scrutiny in the classroom to the intensity of law review or moot court work, from the pathbreaking Samuel Greenebaum Public Service Program to the new University of Louisville Law Clinic, our students will weave together the crucial elements of their introduction to the law and to the legal profession. With their professors and with each other, with partners on campus and in our community, our students will forge bonds that will last a lifetime.
The kaleidoscopic ambition of Gershwin's Rhapsody reflects the breathtaking scope of the careers that begin with the study of law at the University of Louisville. Our graduates span the country and all walks of life within the legal profession, in business, and in public service. Whether they do so with Fulbright Scholarships or one-woman boats, our graduates cross oceans. Judges, trial lawyers, counselors, venture capitalists, community bankers. Musicians, authors, mothers, and fathers. Their sucess, in its diversity and its depth, has one thing in common. It all starts here.
