On November 9, 2013 Professor Jim Jones and 3L student Elizabeth Richardson presented at the International Conference on Aging and Society. They spoke about the effects of mental health care laws and policies on baby boomers and ensuring adequate mental health care.
On Friday, November 8th, alumni from the class years ending in 3s and 8s came back to the School of Law for tours of the new renovations and a reception. On Saturday, November 9th alumni joined the Dean for a pre-game party before the UofL Men’s Basketball Team took on the College of Charleston. That evening the party continued at class dinners at area restaurants. Thanks to all who attended the reunion weekend events and we look forward to welcoming back the classes ending in 4s and 9s next fall.

Tip #1: Never, ever, under any circumstances, identify yourself in Exam4 (or in any other exam situation) using your UofL student ID number. This applies to practice tests, real exams -- everything.
Never. Don't do it.
On Exam4 practice tests, use only your ULink user name to identify yourself in the Exam Number field. For example, in the illustration, below, Lee Harvey has identified himself correctly with his ULink user name, lhoswa01. Good job, Lee Harvey! If you do not use your ULink user name, you will not receive the confirmation e-mail:
"lhoswa01" + "@cardmail.louisville.edu" = complete e-mail address and successful confirmation message.
