There are two seats remaining in the Spring 2013 Advanced Trial Practice course taught by Brian Butler on Monday evenings. If you are interested in this course, but were unable to register for it or join the waitlist during the regular registration period, please contact Associate Dean Tim Hall.
Due to student demand, and the generosity of Tom Fitzgerald, we are able to add to the Spring 2013 schedule a skills course in Environmental Practice. This two hour course is currently available for enrollment on Monday evenings from 6:30-8:20pm. A course description is below. If you have questions about this offering, please contact Associate Dean Tim Hall.
The Environmental Practice course is an interactive skills course teaching students practical lawyering skills such as administrative practice (e.g., comments on regulations; participation in administrative hearings; etc.), litigation-oriented writing, oral advocacy, client letters, client interviewing and counseling, fact gathering and problem assessment and solving. Students will learn how to exercise the selected lawyering skills, then actually perform the skills, and then receive feedback and peer as well as professor evaluation.
A new version of the Spring 2013 schedule is being posted to the Law School website today. It reflects the following changes that have been made in recent days. Most of these changes have been noticed in the Docket already; this post merely collects them for your convenience.
- Professor Smith's Law and Economics course has moved to Room LL60
- The Seminar in Tax Policy and the Friday morning section of Advanced Trial Practice have had to be cancelled due to low enrollments
- We have added a course in Partnership Taxation (the new name is Taxation of Limited Liability Companies and Partnerships) taught by Professor Blackburn
- We have added a section of Advanced Trial Practice taught by experienced adjunct Brian Butler on Monday evenings to accomodate excess demand in that timeslot.
- The third session of the 1L Introduction to Lawyering and Professionalism course has been moved to April 9, 2013.
Due to an unintended conflict with Passover, the third date of the required 1L Introduction to Lawyering Skills and Professionalism course has been changed to April 9, 2013. The three dates for this course are now January 29, February 26, and April 9, 2013. Please mark your calendars. A revised version of the Spring schedule reflecting this change will be posted shortly.
Pursuant to law school policy, ordinarily, a course or seminar which does not have an enrollment of at least five (5) students will not be offered. As of Tuesday, November 27, the Spring 2013 Tax Policy seminar (LAW 999-10) has only four enrollees, and is in danger of being canceled due to lack of enrollment. If you are interested in taking this seminar, please sign up for it as soon as possible so that we may make an informed decision about whether to offer the seminar.
If you are currently enrolled in this seminar, please maintain your enrollment so that we may accurately gauge the level of student demand. A decision about whether to cancel the seminar will be made after consultation with the professor, and affected students will be notified personally via email.
As winter is coming, please be reminded that the School of Law follows the University's lead in all weather-related cancellations and delays. Please note that the University will provide official school closing information in the following ways: A notice at the top of the University home page (www.louisville.edu); e-mails sent to all students and employees on their official university e-mail accounts; a recorded message at 852-5555. Student may also sign up for text-based alerts at http://www.louisville.edu/alert
1. If the University cancels classes for the entire day, all School of Law classes are cancelled.
2. If the University delays the start of classes, the following rules apply:
a. All classes scheduled to end at or before 10:25 a.m. are cancelled,
b. All classes scheduled to begin after 10:25 a.m. will meet at their normal time, and
c. All classes scheduled to begin before 10:25 a.m. and end after 10:25 a.m. will begin at the later of (i) 10:00 a.m. or (ii) the regularly scheduled start time.

In response to student demand, Professor Blackburn has graciously consented to offer a section of Taxation of Limited Liabilitity Companies and Partnerships in the Spring semester. Information about the course is below.
If you are interested in enrolling, please contact Professor Blackburn (email@example.com, 502-852-6384).
Limited liability companies (LLCs) are the most popular form of business entity in the United States for small and medium size businesses. The taxation of LLCs is, therefore, a foundation course for any attorney who expects to advise business clients.
1) No prerequisites.
2) 2 credit hours.
3) The class will meet Monday and Wednesday from 2:35 until 3:35 (60 minutes) for the first twelve weeks of the semester (i.e., will finish two weeks before the end of the usual 14 week spring semester).
4) The exam will be either a take-home or in-class (not decided yet), but the class will end before the end of the regular spring semester and before start of the regular exam period.
As you may know, the University registration system should be re-opened today for anyone who needs to complete or make changes to their Spring 2013 registration. There are several courses with waiting lists for the Spring semester. If you are holding a seat in one of these courses, but know that you no longer plan to take the course, please drop the course in the University registration system so that a student on the waiting list may be moved into the course. If you have any questions about Spring registration, please feel free to contact Associate Dean Hall.
