The time of the semester is here when you have no choice but to start thinking about exams. There are only THREE full weeks of classes left. You need to have a plan for exam studying or you will have too much to learn and not enough time in which to learn it. Get caught up on your outlines quickly. Your outlines will be your master documents for studying. If you wait too long to get them up-to-date, you will not have enough time to review the material for deep understanding. If you have the world’s best outline and do not study it thoroughly, you will not perform as well as you could on exams. Your goal this weekend should be to catch up on your outlines and then outline every week.

Attention students graduating in December 2011, May 2012, or August 2012:
On Thursday, November 10, at 12:15 p.m., representatives from the Kentucky Office of Bar Admissions, including 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).
Your attendance at the November 10 program is a requirement for graduation. If you have an absolute conflict that will prohibit you from attending the November 10 program, you must notify Dean Cross so that alternative arrangements can be made.
