I write today concerning the recent news reports about scholarship awards to the 1L class. We did overcommit on scholarships but I want to assure you we will honor our commitments to all 1L, 2L and 3L students. We’ll be fine in year one and we’re working through ways to cover the scholarships in years two and three but we will cover them. In addition, I wanted you to know that we are:
• conducting a thorough review to determine how this happened;
• actively pursuing appointing an Interim Assistant Dean of Admissions; and
• analyzing how this impacts our budget.
When I have additional information on these issues I will update you. Thank you for your support. Our law school has always risen to meet our challenges and I am confident we will do so again. We look forward to welcoming an extremely talented first year class to join our outstanding upper level students.
You have one less thing to worry about on Tuesday! Complimentary box lunches will be available to all UofL Law graduates taking the Kentucky Bar Exam on July 24. The lunches will include a hoagie-style sandwich (turkey, veggie, or ham), chips, fruit, cookies, and your choice of water or soda.
The box lunches will be available in the Hancock and Knox conference rooms at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Signs will be posted directing you to the correct room where you can pick up your lunch. Please note – seating is limited in the Hancock and Knox conference rooms. If you prefer to pick up your box lunch and eat outside or somewhere else in the hotel, you are welcome to do so.
Lunch has been made possible thanks to many sponsors, including faculty, staff, alumni, and Louisville businesses.
Don’t forget to read or re-read the Bar Exam Instruction Manual, http://www.kyoba.org/Views/public/EventDetails.aspx?event_id=1, for important information regarding the dress code, registration on exam day, and what is and is not permitted in the exam room.
We wish you the best of luck on the exam.

Attention all 2L’s and 3L’s who are receiving scholarship funds. We are currently posting fall awards on your account. You will notice these on ULINK. They may appear to be from different accounts than you were awarded previously. These awards will disburse on August 13, 2012 as scheduled by the Financial Aid Office. Your spring award will show as “Potential Law Scholarship” at this time. We will begin posting spring awards during the fall semester and they will be set to disburse to your account at the beginning of the spring semester when financial aid disburses the spring funds. Your scholarship amount is not changing. If you have any questions, you may feel free to contact me directly.
