All are invited to The Center for the Study of Crime and Justice in Black Communities' (CSCJBC) first community event for the fall of 2010. Join us as we premiere our first documentary "Justice for All." This film by the talented young film maker Stephen "John Doe" Barbour features commentary from scholars, laymen, politicians, and community men and women on pressing issues from education to unemployment to troubling nuances of the prison industrial complex and how these problems impact us all.
Commentary and Q&A with Louisville Circuit Court Judge Brian C. Edwards - former director of CSCJBC, follow the short documentary.
So, join us at 21C Museum Hotel - rated America's best hotel by the readers of Conde Nast (#6 in the world - bet you didn't know that!). Free heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served at the reception from 21C's outstanding menu. The reception begins at 5:30pm and the main event kicks off promptly at 6:30pm.

The calendar no longer supports the idea that exams are a distant event. There are only five full weeks remaining before the end of classes. The remainder of this week's tips will focus on exam preparation.
- Ask your professors questions. Your professors will be writing and grading your exams. Your professors are the experts. Ask questions about any areas on which you are confused. Ask early and often rather than wait until the end of classes.
- Spend time on memory work. Drill on rules and elements so that you know them by heart. Even if you are able to take a rule or statute book into an exam, you need to know the rules to avoid having to look everything up.
- Apply the material constantly. The more practice questions that you do, the better prepared you will be to organize your answers and to spot nuances in the law. Practice questions also help you self-monitor what you need to study more and what you know already.
The calendar no longer supports the idea that exams are a distant event. There are only five full weeks remaining before the end of classes. In light of the seriousness of the time in the semester, the remainder of this week's tips will focus on exam preparation.
- Stop fragmenting your efforts and refocus. If you have been coasting through class until now, stop. If you have been focusing on extracurricular activities to the exclusion of academics, stop. If you have been partying instead of studying, stop. You need to prioritize your efforts for studies now.
- Take responsibility for wherever you are in your studies. If you are in good shape, congratulate yourself and plan the next step before you are tempted to rest on your laurels. If your studying is in shambles, do not blame your present situation on your professors, study partners, family, or whomever comes to mind. Own it and move forward.
