Interviews are currently scheduled for Tuesday, October 4th. Depending upon how many students sign up, Captain Schlueter may also conduct interviews on Wednesday, October 5th.
All On-Campus Interviewers are requested to read and agree to a non-discrimination policy.
This non-discrimination policy is for military recruiters. In order to conduct job interviews in the law school or to obtain assistance from the Career Services Office, prospective employers must sign a statement of nondiscrimination based on race, color, religion, nationality, gender, disability or sexual orientation. Federal laws relating to military service preclude representatives of the Armed Forces from signing the nondiscrimination statement in its entirety. Congress also has enacted a statute, known as the Solomon Amendment, requiring that federal funding -- including several categories of student loans -- be terminated at any educational institution that refuses access to military recruiters. Therefore, the law school grants access to military recruiters who sign the nondiscrimination statement to the extent consistent with federal law.The

Congratulations to Jonathon Raymon, who won the drawing for the lavish and glitzy prize given to one student who attended the first yoga session. The drawing was overseen by representatives from one of the Big Four accounting firms. And it's a good thing the representatives were there, as some non-students tried to cheat by signing their names to the list (Dean Duncan, this means you ..).
Jonathon wins a UofL Law School polo shirt. He can pick it up in Dean Ballard's office.
Do you ever feel that you have put in time but do not understand or recall anything that you heard in class or read in your casebook? Do you ever “zone out” during class or study time? One of the most essential study skills is the ability to focus. Here are some general tips that you might want to consider:
- Get at least 7 hours of sleep per night so that your brain cells can be ready to work productively for you.
- Take short 5-minute breaks after every hour of studying.
- Take a longer 30-minute break after you have been studying for 3 or 4 hours.
- Take a quick break if you completely lose your focus and cannot get it back with more active study strategies: asking questions; reciting out loud; talking with someone else about the material.
- Find a setting where you can study without interruptions or distractions.
- Have all of your supplies and study materials gathered and ready for use before you sit down to study.
- Eat a light snack before studying to assuage hunger pangs: an apple; a box of raisins; a handful of nuts; a granola bar.
- Use ice water to keep you alert instead of coffee or sodas.
