Attention students graduating in December 2012, May 2013, or August 2013:
On Tuesday, November 13, at 12:15 p.m., representatives from the Kentucky Office of Bar Admissions, including Ms. Elizabeth Feamster, Director and General Counsel, Ms. Mary Riddell, Deputy Director, Mr. Eric Ison, Chair of the Board of Bar Examiners, and Mr. Grant Helman, Chair of the Character and Fitness Committee, will present a mandatory bar program for graduating law students on candor and related bar issues you may face when applying to take the bar.
ABA Standard 302(a)(5) requires that each student receive substantial instruction in “the history, goals, structure, values, rules and responsibilities of the legal profession and its members.” In addition, Interpretation 302-6 requires that the School of Law “involve members of the bench and bar in the instruction required by Standard 302(a)(5).” This program is designed to provide instruction on professionalism issues concerning law students and lawyers and also to satisfy the ABA’s requirement in Standard 302(a)(5).
The program will also include information about application deadlines to sit for the Kentucky Bar Exam, the application process, and the format of the exam. The program will conclude by 1:30 p.m.
Your attendance at the November 13 program is a requirement for graduation. Please mark your calendar now. If you anticipate a work conflict, please make arrangements now to ensure your attendance at the mandatory program.

If you are having an event in one of the law school's classrooms, please do not rearrange the tables and chairs in the room, or move tables or chairs from one room to another. It is a distraction to faculty, and wastes instructional time, to have seating charts which are inaccurate or rooms which no longer contain an adequate number of seats for a scheduled class; and a distraction to students to have seats which are no longer in reasonable proximity to electrical outlets.
This goes for all classrooms, but in particular, the smaller classrooms have been rearranged repeatedly, and as a result some faculty have found that their classes no longer fit the room properly.
Thank you for your consideration.
