The Tuesday forecast is for possible severe weather. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to monitor local media for the latest weather news. The UofL Alert system will be activated only if the National Weather Service issues a tornado warning for Jefferson County, Ky. UofL Alert includes emergency messages sent via cell phone text message, campus phones, UofL e-mail accounts and posted on the UofL home page. To see an example of the home page message placement and for more information on UofL Alert, go to http://louisville.edu/alerts

Because the forecast for February 5 includes a significant risk of more severe weather, faculty, staff and student organizations may wish to shut down their computers and printers. If we have a serious electrical interruption, shutting down will minimize damage.
For students and instructors in evening classes: The Law Library has a weather
radio at the Circulation Desk. If you wish to check on the forecast, the radio is always on.

"Louis Brandeis: The People's Attorney" will air on KET1 on Tuesday, January 8 at 9:00 p.m. and again on KET2 on January 14 at 10:00 p.m.
The documentary, which premiered in November at the University of Louisville's Brandeis School of Law, includes interviews and commentary by Professor Laura Rothstein. For more information on the documentary, click here.
On Thursday, January 10th at 7 PM, avid woodsman and practicing attorney, Andre Bergeron, will participate in a reading and book signing for his new book, The
Devil's Ridge. Bergeron uses the mythic quality of the North American great ape, Sasquatch, or Bigfoot, to craft a gripping page-turner that taps into our primal fears and basic instincts. Reminiscent of stories told around the campfire, The Devil's Ridge will make you wonder what is lurking in the shadows, just beyond the fire's light.
Andre Bergeron earned his Master's degree in English and his Juris Doctorate from the University of Louisville. He practices law in Louisville. The Devil's Ridge is his first novel.

Phi Alpha Delta is sponsoring a Fall Food Drive to benefit local food shelves, e. g., Dare to Care. The drive has already begun and will last two weeks, from Monday, November 5th, to Monday, November 19th. They would like students, staff, and professors to bring non-perishable food items and deposit these items into collection bins, located in the main lobby of the law school. The food drive is affiliated with Kentucky Harvest, a charitable organization that distributes these items to area food programs.
Additionally, some professors are assisting in the Food Drive by permitting students who are called upon in class (between November 5th and November 19th) to be excused from answering in exchange for a donation of a food item.
