As a member of the larger Louisville community, the University of Louisville places a high priority on using its resources to strengthen and transform the local community. Participating in public service projects is common for UofL students, but some students took their involvement a step further this semester by organizing group days and, in some cases, embracing often-overlooked causes.
UofL’s Brandeis School of Law coordinated its first community service day April 5. The idea came about when students voiced interest in a school-wide community service project during the school’s strategic planning process last year.
Friday, May 9, the law school will host its Senior Honors Program at 5 p.m. in the Allen Courtroom, followed by a graduation reception in the Student Commons from 6 - 7:30 p.m.
Please rsvp to Simone Beach firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-852-6366 no later than Monday, May 5.
Congratulations to all of you for making it through the program. We hope to see youat the party.
The JLE operates under the belief that grades are not as important as excellent writing skills, dependability and strong interest, so any student who plans on attending classes through Spring 2009 is encouraged to apply. We are accepting over 30 candidates, so our acceptance rate is very high. Moreover, you can be a member of both journals at Brandeis.
