Congratulations to the University of Louisville Law Review Editors and Members for publishing Volume 50, Issue 1! After working tirelessly through the summer and fall, the Law Review has published the Fall 2011 issue. 2011-2012 marks the flagship journal's Golden Anniversary and to celebrate this milestone, the journal covers have been embossed with gold lettering.
Issue 1 features three Articles and three Notes. The Articles were written by Robert Sprague, Associate Professor at the University of Wyoming College of Business (his article is featured as part of the Carl A Warns, Jr. Labor & Employment Law Institute); David A. Westbrook, Professor of Law at the University of Buffalo; and F. Patrick Hubbard, Professor of Law at the University of South Carolina. The Notes were written by Law Review Members Shannon Burns, Molly MacCaskey, and Amanda Warford.
Copies of Issue 1 are now available on reserve in the Law Library and are also available on Westlaw and Lexis Nexis. The journal is cited as 50 U. Louisville L. Rev. 1.
This week’s tips focus on how you can use your time efficiently and effectively for studying during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Realize that it is your responsibility to carve out the time you need for study. Talk to your family and friends about why it is important for you to have study time during the break period to prepare for exams, to write a paper, or to accomplish whatever tasks you need to do. If you have always played during undergraduate school on breaks, they may not understand why law study is different. Even if family and friends do not fully understand, you need to make personal decisions that you will not regret later. You may need to make some compromises and get up earlier or stay up later. Do not use your family and friends as an excuse to procrastinate.
Attention students graduating in December 2011, May 2012, or August 2012:
