Brandeis School of Law Event Guide and Room Request Form

I am happy to announce that the Brandeis School of Law Event Guide and Room Request Form are now online!

The guide is intended to assist student organizations in planning programs and features nine steps to a successful law school event. It also includes helpful information from each administrative department at the law school so students know exactly who to contact for help.
 
To be most effective, every student group should review the event guide and submit a room reservation request before adding an event on the law school calendar. 

You may access the Brandeis School of Law Event Guide and Room Request Form from the News & Events page on the law school Web site and from the Student Life or Current Students pages. You must be logged into the law school Web site in order to download the event guide or submit a request for a room.
 
The law school administration hopes that this event guide and room request form will help to simplify planning and hosting an event. Your feedback and input about how to improve the guide or form are always welcome.

Brandeis Running Society

Are you a runner? Are you interested in incorporating fitness into your life? The Brandeis School of Law is starting a  running club this Fall and it's the perfect way to start healthy traditions. The club is intended to be a non-intimidating way for law school students to engage in healthy behavior. Running is a great way to increase cardiovascular health and can relieve law school-related stress. From beginners to advanced runners, we hope to accommodate all levels. If you're interested email:  jcewa001@louisville.edu or  kepotz01@louisville.edu.

Thank you so much, Jen and Katie

Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) not supported by Exam4

Today, Apple released Mac OS 10.8, familiarly known as "Mountain Lion."  Extegrity announced in April that Exam4 would not support Mountain Lion during Fall 2012.  An announcement was posted in The Daily Docket at that time.  This is a reminder to student Mac users who wish to use Exam4 next semester to not purchase a new Mac laptop with Mountain Lion, nor to upgrade an existing Mac laptop to it.
