As the President of the SBA and a representative of our student body, I would like to ask each of you to complete your course evaluations. These evaluations are very important in evaluating the education we are receiving at the Brandeis School of Law, as well as the performance of our professors. They only take a short amount of time, but are an important measure for each of you to take. I appreciate you taking the time to complete them. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks - Kristie Wetterer

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.

Westbrook, Professor of Law at the University of Buffalo; and F. Patrick Hubbard, Professor of Law at the University of South Carolina.

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.
