Are you graduating in December 2008 or May 2009? If so, the law school would like to introduce you to our Alumni.
The 2008 Fall Alumni Magazine will include photos and a little information about next year's graduating class. This information will help our alumni get to know about the great new lawyers we are graduating this year. All law students graduating in August or December 2008 or May 2009 are urged to share a little bit about themselves with our alumni.
This is the same opportunity posted in August. We received many profiles, but not everyone's, and we want the whole graduating class represented!
Don't have a photo? Please contact Beth Haendiges to set up a time for a photograph.
To participate, please click on this link: http://www.law.louisville.edu/node/1963 and complete the form. (You must be logged in to access the form.)
The deadline to participate has been extended to October 1.
Student tickets for Lawlapalooza 2008 are on sale now in the Faculty Resource Center, room 272. Student tickets are five dollars ($5) each, and each student may now purchase up to two tickets at that price. Previously, students were only permitted to purchase one discounted ticket each.
Lawlapalooza directly benefits our students by funding summer fellowships in the areas of family law, domestic violence and spouse abuse, and HIV/AIDS. So, come on out to support yourself and enjoy a fun evening of great music, Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Phoenix Hill Tavern.
