Dinner & A Movie

The LBA will be hosting Dinner & A Movie at the Kentucky Science Center on Thursday, November 6. The legal community is invited for food and drinks from 5-6:30 p.m. and will then receive preferred seating for a screening of the classic film, “Inherit the Wind,” which is based on the 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial.”

This could be a great opportunity for networking in a casual, fun atmosphere. Tickets are $20, but for law students we’re offering a discounted ticket of $15. This includes a buffet, complimentary beverage and movie candy to enjoy before or during the film.

Exam4 Now DOES Support Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite)

In yesterday's Docket, the IT Dept. reported that Exam4 does not support Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite) because we had been so advised by Extegrity, Exam4's publisher. However, late yesterday afternoon, we received notice from Extegrity that Exam4 WOULD now support Yosemite. We requested that they make the Yosemite version of Exam4 immediately available for download and installation. Consequently, students who have upgraded to Yosemite, or who wish to may do so and, may now use Exam4. Yosemite users download the Yosemite version of Exam4 and take a practice exam by Friday evening's deadline.

Congratulations, Grateful Decedents!

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!

Lawlapalooza Student Band of the Day: The Grateful Decedents

The Grateful Decedents, playing rock, reggae rock, blues rock, funk rock, classic rock, and ragnarok, feature 3Ls Greg Daly on vocals and Mina Khalil on electric guitar and vocals. The five musicians from the Louisville area started a band just to play Lawlapalooza this year.

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.

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.

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.
