Jeffrey Benedict, now a second-year law student and 2008 Mitchell scholar, is one of two students that received National Security Education Program David L. Boren scholarships for the 2009-10 academic year. Participants must complete a national security-related service requirement for the Boren Fellowship.
Since 2005, 10 UofL students or graduates have received Boren scholarships. The scholarship funds between three months and two years of study in a country of national security interest for students studying languages and subjects of particular national security relevance. Benedict is studying intensive intermediate-level Turkish and regionally-focused law classes while completing his fellowship in Istanbul this summer.
Benedict earned a Master of Arts degree from the National University of Ireland, Maynooth in Musicology with First-Class Honors. He graduated summa cum laude from Vanderbilt University in 2007, where he received many awards for his research on the practice of espionage by musicians throughout European history. Benedict is a First Lieutenant in the Army Reserves and looks forward to being placed in the Army Judge Advocate General's Corps upon completion of law school. He will return to school on August 24.

University of Louisville students produced their first yearbook, The Colonel, in 1909. The Colonel apparently ceased publication after the 1912 edition, leaving a gap in the documentation of student life until 1922, when its successor, The Kentucky Cardinal, began monthly publication during the school year, with the June edition serving as a de facto yearbook. By 1924, the school year-end annual edition of The Kentucky Cardinal had been renamed The Thoroughbred, a title which lasted until 1972, despite a somewhat sporadic publishing record (no issues were produced in 1932, 1934-1938, 1943, 1945-1946, and 1970-1971).
During and after World War II two small publications were created to fill the gap while The Thoroughbred was on hiatus: The Key (1943) and The Class Cards (1946). The Thoroughbred Magazine briefly replaced the yearbook from 1969-1971, with multiple issues (four the first year and three thereafter) including poetry in addition to photographs. The Thoroughbred yearbook reappeared in 1972 for one last time, then, after another year without a yearbook (1973), it was replaced by The Déjà Vu (1974-1976). After another gap (1977-1978), the last major attempt at a UofL yearbook, Minerva, was produced from 1979-1980 and again in 1982 (there is no 1981 yearbook).
This digital collection contains full-text searchable digital versions of University of Louisville yearbooks. The yearbooks are being scanned in chronological order, and the digital collection will be updated in phases as groups of scans are completed and cataloged. Magazines (such as The Kentucky Cardinal monthly publications and The Thoroughbred quarterly publications) and yearbooks for individual schools (such as the School of Dentistry’s Plugger and the School of Law’s Jeffersonian) are not intended for inclusion at this time.
The collection includes several images of the law school building and photographs from the aforementioned yearbooks and publications. The best means for locating these items is to visit the collection's homepage and enter "law" in the search box labeled "Search the Yearbooks", then click Go.

Kentucky's Transportation Cabinet will embark upon a three-phase construction project to some of the main thoroughfares on the eastern and southern borders of Belknap Campus. Construction will begin in late August and is expected to be completed by the end of December. Enhancements to the area will include bike lanes, structurally enhanced bridges, increased safety, better signage, and a landscaped median.
The law school will be most impacted by Phase II that involves a major redesign of the portion of Eastern Parkway nearest Third Street. During that period, access along Eastern Parkway will be restricted. Visitors are encouraged to approach from either Third Street (west) or Cardinal Boulevard (north). Some of the spaces in the red, green, and blue parking lots will be temporarily relocated. TARC bus #29 will be rerouted at Crittenden Drive. The Black Loop will not be impacted.
Update, 6/21: Eastern Parkway between Third Street and the entrance to the Speed School of Engineering parking lot will be blocked off Tuesday morning, June 22, from about 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. for the dedication and opening of the renovated Eastern Parkway bridge. The lot is accessible via Brook and Warnock streets during the ceremony. Gov. Steve Beshear, U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, Metro Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson and other state and local officials will join UofL President James Ramsey for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. UofL Provost Shirley Willihnganz and student Preston Bates also will represent the university at the event. Eastern Parkway will be opened for traffic immediately following the ceremony. Old Eastern Parkway, which runs under the bridge, will remain closed until about July 1.
