The Law School's mid-term break is on Monday. This long weekend is the perfect opportunity to get caught up with outlining in each of your courses. Try these tips:
- For each course, calculate how many weeks behind you are in the outline.
- Start with the course that is most caught up and finish that outline first. Then work on the next outline that has the fewest weeks to catch up and so forth.
- If you are equally behind in several outlines, start with the course that you think you can do most quickly.
- If you have not started any outlines, decide which outline will be the easiest to do and complete it first. Next easiest and so forth.
- Block off time in your schedule to work on each outline over several days, rather than expect to find 8 or 10 hours straight for outlining.
- Set goals for when each outline will be current. Try to have all outlines completed within 10 days – the earlier the better.
- You will need to sacrifice weekend “fun” time to get on top of your outlining so that you only have to add new material each week.

We want to earnestly thank all of the students, staff and faculty who chipped in to our tip jar and helped us win Lawlapalooza this year. No doubt, you were our major contributors. More important, we want to express our deep gratitude to the staff who organize Lawlapalooza year after year, the faculty, and especially to the students who came out in great numbers last Thursday night to support the Judge Ellen Ewing Fund in particular, and the Samuel L. Greenebaum Public Service Program in general.
Lawlapalooza makes it possible for one of you to spend a summer as a Ewing Fellow, working at the Legal Aid Society in the areas of family law, domestic violence and spouse abuse, or HIV/AIDS, making contacts with legal professionals, developing invaluable practice skills and most important, giving back by assisting those who cannot afford an advocate on their own. For all its fun, ultimately, this is what Lawlapalooza is about.
Lawlapalooza is absolutely fun, though. The law school, and the broader legal community, doesn't have a comparable, "let your hair down" event like Lawlapalooza. While that's unfortunate, it makes Lawlapalooza unique. The sense of community and camaraderie — between and among students, staff and faculty — that the event creates every year is wonderful, warm and extraordinary. We're sorry if you missed it, because you really missed out. Fortunately, there's always next year.
Again, many, many thanks to all of you who supported Lawlapalooza this year in any of many ways. We represented you on that stage, and we are very happy and proud to have done so.
— Professor Tim Hall, Professor Lars Smith, Asst. Dean Jim Becker
