Due to public safety concerns, pedestrian access will be eliminated around the construction site at the northeast corner of Third Street and Eastern Parkway. The Third Street sidewalk from the corner to the Cardinal Shuttle stop just south of the Oval is being closed immediately. The sidewalk from that corner east on Eastern Parkway is being closed up to the Natural Science Building. Also, the Third Street sidewalk south of Eastern Parkway near the Engineering Graphics parking lot will be closed soon for utilities work. During that time pedestrians need to cross Third Street near the entrance to the Engineering Graphics lot, proceed north on Third, and cross back at the Eastern-Third Street intersection. Signs will mark all closures and alternate routes.

Analyze each element of the relevant causes of action in your exam answer. The depth of your analysis regarding each element will depend on the complexity of the problem. Forcing yourself to analyze every element will accomplish two things: (1) it will let the professor know that you understand that every element of a cause of action must be proven; and (2) it will force you to consider whether each element has been satisfied, thus avoiding the mistake of failing to discuss a complex problem that, at least on the surface, seemed quite obvious.

November 13, 2010, marks the 154th birthday of Louis D. Brandeis, for whom the law school is named.
Louis D. Brandeis was the Supreme Court Justice most responsible for helping the Supreme Court shape the tools it needed to interpret the Constitution in light of the sociological and economic conditions of the 20th century. A progressive, and champion of reform, Brandeis devoted his life to social justice.
Louisville can be proud that Justice Brandeis, who was born here in 1856 is so connected to our community and that his values had their roots here. The principles and philosophies that Brandeis is known for – including rights to privacy, free speech, curtailing big government and big business, balancing regulation with free enterprise and a commitment to public service – are timely today.
In honor of his birthday, a wreath has been placed at the final resting place for Justice Brandeis. This week two events provide members of our community an opportunity to learn more about Justice Brandeis. On Wednesday, November 10, 7-9 pm, Mel Urofsky (recipient of the 2009 Brandeis Medal) will speak at the Festival of Jewish Books about his award winning book Louis D. Brandeis: A Life. This event will take place at the Jewish Community Center, 3600 Dutchmans Lane. On Thursday, November 11, at 6 pm, Professor Michael Wolf will deliver the Boehl Lecture on Brandeisian Approach to Land Use. This event will take place at the Law School, Room 275, at 6 pm, with a reception to follow.
