The International Law Society and Christian Law Society are honored to host Lyndsay Taylor with Sister Bridge this Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 12:00-4:00 pm in the Mosaic Lobby.
Sister Bridge is a wonderful organization that pairs with others in order to help women in developing nations. Last year ILS showed a documentary on the tragedy of human trafficking. This Wednesday we will get the opportunity to do something about it.
In the lobby, there will be hand made items including African cloth bags and home decor, Indonesian beaded jewelry and ornaments, and card sets from India. 100% of the funds goes directly to the women/artists, through specific missions organizations that Sister Bridge has partnered with.
Tip #2: If you do not receive, or have not received, an e-mail like the one pictured below at your CardMail address within about an hour after submitting your practice test, you did something wrong. Try again following these instructions.
If you are planning to take a make-up exam this FALL semester, please submit your make-up exam request form to Student Records by 4:00 p.m., Monday, November 25.
If you have questions, please contact Barbara Thompson in Student Records.

New books have arrived just in time for the holidays, including titles by Bill Bryson, Elizabeth Gilbert, James Patterson, Amy Tan and more.
The Washer Lounge contains a mini-library of recreational books funded by the late Judge Ben Washer. It's located at the east end of the building in the Professional Development wing. The books are available exclusively to students, staff, and faculty and are checked out on the honor system--just fill out the card in the back of the book and leave it in the box on the shelves.
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.
