Students who are interested in participating in the ABA Law Student Division 2014-15 Negotiation Competition are invited to submit their expression of interest and availability to BOTH Professor Tony Arnold and Professor Mary Jo Gleason (the co-coaches of the teams) at firstname.lastname@example.org and MaryJoGleason@kycourts.net. It is very important that you send an email message to both Professors Arnold and Gleason. Your message should include: a) why you are interested in the Negotiation Competition Team; b) any experience you have had with negotiations (including any past or current classes or other experience); c) your time availability for practices in the evenings and on weekends during September, October, and early November; d) your cell phone number and your email addresses. You may attach a resume if you would like, but it's not necessary. The deadline for expressions of interest is Noon on Thursday, September 18.
We will take 2 teams to the regional, which will be either October 31 to November 2 (Friday to Sunday) or November 7 to November 10 (Friday to Monday). The dates and location for our region have not been set yet. Please note that the MPRE is November 7 and could possibly conflict with our competition; if you apply to be on the team, you are agreeing to be available then. The selected participants must be available to travel during either time period (we won't know which one until we know to which region we will be assigned), be available for practices (2-3 hours each) at least twice per week from September 22 to November 7, and be ABA Law Student Division members in good standing no later than October 1. If we receive more expression of interest than the 4 spots available on the teams, we will give preference to students with negotiation experience, as this competition develops and requires advanced negotiation skills. If you have questions about what participation in the competition is like, you might want to contact 3L Jeff Hellman, who competed last year. Thank you for your interest!

The IRS will accept up to three tax externs for the 2015 spring semester. The application deadline for fall 2014 has passed, but it is not too early to apply for 2015 spring.
Externs work in the local office of the IRS under the direct supervision of IRS attorneys and Professor Blackburn. Externs do research and write memos, meet with IRS audit agents, with taxpayers and with taxpayer representatives such as legal counsel and CPAs. Externs sometimes take the lead in meetings with pro se taxpayers. Externs assist IRS trial attorneys with trial preparation and sometimes represent the IRS in U.S. Tax Court against pro se taxpayers.
To be eligible you must 1) be enrolled in school on at least a half-time basis, 2) be enrolled in at least the second semester of your second year, have successfully completed a course in Federal taxation, and Professor Blackburn must recommend you.
If you would like more information, please contact Professor Blackburn (email@example.com or 502-852-6384). The required security clearance can take four to six weeks, so it is not too early to begin the process.
Gearing up for Spring 2015 and planning your classes? Consider this opportunity:
How about celebrating 2015 spring break with service work in Belize or celebrating post Derby with service work in Croatia? Law is one of several participating disciplines. The law team in Belize will be led by Dean Susan Duncan and will focus on restorative justice programs by working in schools and communities outside of Dangriga. The law team in Croatia will be led by Professor Shelley Santry and will focus on domestic violence awareness and prevention by working in schools and communities outside of Zagreb.
Learn more about this opportunity at Uof L’s International Service Learning Program (ISLP) website http://louisville.edu/islp/. The service is rewarding and the memories will last a lifetime! Plus, you will earn three (3) hours of academic credit and build useful skills.
The class meets weekly (January through April) and orientations will be one evening each week (for Belize starting in January and continuing until just after spring break; for Croatia starting mid-semester and continuing until the end of the term). Still undecided? Come to an information session Monday, September 8, 12-1 in room LL75.
Each location is truly an amazing place and you will love the experience!!!
If you are interested, applications are due now (priority deadline is September 29th!! You can apply on the ISLP website (http://louisville.edu/student/isl).
