Students Offer Services to Community Organizations

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.

Journal of Law and Education extends deadline to April 25

The Journal of Law and Education has extended the deadline for completed application to April 25. Applications for the 2008-2009 Journal of Law and Education are available now in the Student Mailroom. Being a member of the JLE offers an opportunity to become published in a well-known journal. Further, you can expand your network while gaining valuable writing experience, impressive resume credentials, and writing samples for prospective employers.

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.

The application packet simply contains a personal information sheet and a small sample case for which you will write an abstract. Applications are due on Friday, April 25. If you have any questions, contact Kevin J. Graves at kjgrav02@louisville.edu. Thank you and good luck.
