University of Louisville officials unveiled the renovated Belknap Campus oval at a press conference September 22, 2009.
The oval has been under reconstruction since 2007. The project includes a cascading fountain, lighting, landscaping and safety features, such as sidewalks, curbs and brickpavers. It was paid for by Transportation Enhancements Program funding through the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and a grant from the University of Louisville Foundation.
On September 22, the United States Postal Service released a series of four new postage stamps commemmorating great United States Supreme Court Justices, including one featuring the law school's namesake Louis D. Brandeis. The other honorees are William Brennan, Felix Frankfurter, and Joseph Story. A story in Legal Times discusses the offering and notes that Thurgood Marshall's son will be at the dedication, along with Chief Justice John Roberts.
The USPS site provides this mini-biography of Brandeis: “Louis D. Brandeis was the associate 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. “If we would guide by the light of reason,” he once exhorted his colleagues, “we must let our minds be bold.” A progressive and champion of reform, Brandeis devoted his life to social justice. He defended the right of every citizen to speak freely, and his groundbreaking conception of the right to privacy continues to impact legal thought today.”

Dateline—September 18th, 2009 UK Intramural Fields—Lexington, Kentucky
Led by the passing combination of UofL School of Law Quarterback Blake Bowling to receiver Jared Key, the law school football team defeated their arch rival UK College of Law last Friday evening 13-6 in Lexington.
The Bowling to Key passing combination resulted in an 18 yard reception in the first half followed by a 22 yard second half touchdown that turned out to be the difference in a heavily, defensive struggle by both teams.
The Cardinal Law defense was spectacular limiting the Cats to over 4, separate 4-and-outs while intercepting them twice, once by Josh Speirs and another by Jerred Kelly. Kelly’s interception late in the game turned out to be the game winning stop by the visiting Cards.
The Cardinal victory was the third in a row over their arch rivals in this annual competition held on the same weekend as the UofL vs. UofL football game.
It is amazing that we are beginning the sixth week of the semester! Some of your professors may have started to speed up in class and cover more pages. You may be working on your first graded writing assignment for BLS, preparing for a practice exam, studying for a mid-term, or all of the above. What can you do to re-group after these first five weeks if you are feeling pressured by the workload or are worrying that you are already behind in your studying? This week's tips will provide suggestions on how to handle pressure.
- Do not stop reading for classes because you have other projects or assignments due soon. Carve out time for the projects around your reading for classes. If you focus on papers or projects and ignore class reading, you will then be confused in class and behind in your reading. If you do not know how to find time for both reading and other tasks, make an appointment with the Director of Academic Success for help with time management.
