The Mike Eidson Scholarship awards $5,000 annually to a female student entering her third year of law school (the student can be enrolled in a three-year day program or four-year night program) who has demonstrated a commitment to a career as a trial lawyer, along with dedication to upholding and defending the principles of the Constitution, and to the concept of a fair trial, the adversary system, and a just result for the injured, the accused, and those whose rights are jeopardized.
All scholarship applications are due May 1, 2014.

The law school final exam period can be stressful. To help ease some stress and anxiety, Dean Ballard has arranged for massage therapists to provide complimentary massages in the Washer Lounge on FIVE separate days during the exam period.
Tuesday, April 22 10:00 – 1:00
Wednesday, April 23 11:00 – 6:00
Friday, April 25 10:00 – 2:00
Tuesday, April 29 10:00 – 2:00
Wednesday, April 30 10:00 – 2:00
Two massage therapists will be at the Law School on most days. You may sign up for an appointment in advance, but walk-ins are perfectly fine too. Enjoy a massage before an exam, after an exam, or just enjoy a break from studying while at the law school.
GOOD LUCK ON YOUR EXAMS!
