Student Life News
The Resource Center has ended its summer hours.
For the academic calendar year, the hours are 8am - 5:30pm M-Thur. and 8am - 4pm Fri.
Professor Cross is trying to coordinate a group of students to take part in a study abroad program in Croatia for the summer of 2012. The program, sponsored by Michigan State University and the University of Dubrovnik, differs from most study abroad programs in that it focuses only on intellectual property law. The program runs from late July to early August, 2013, although students can opt to go for only half that time. All courses are in English. There are no prerequisites, so current 1Ls could easily take part.
For further information, you can look at http://www.law.msu.edu/croatia/index.html. Note that this is the site for the 2012 program. The dates for the 2013 program will be July 24 to August 14.
Interested students should contact Professor Cross, who can provide additional details.
If you have not had accommodations previously, but wish to request them, please contact Cathy Patus and copy Dean Ballard on the email. Questions? Please review the UofL Law Handbook for Applicants and Students with Disabilities at http://www.law.louisville.edu/students/disabilities.
- For students graduating in May 2013, your cumulative grade point average after the Fall 2012 semester is used for the commencement program and honor cords. Questions? Please see Barbara Thompson in Student Records.
- Unless explicitly authorized by the Assistant Dean for Student Life, no full-time student is permitted to register for more than 16 credit hours per semester and no part-time student is permitted to register for more than 12 credit hours per semester. With permission, a full-time student may register for a maximum of 18 credit hours and a part-time student may register for a maximum of 13 credit hours. “Credit hours” include all classes the student takes at the University of Louisville, regardless of whether the credit will be applied toward the student’s degree. Skills competitions and journal credit also count as hours in this calculation.
- Students may take no more than two seminars in any semester.
- Students may apply no more than four (4) credit hours of independent studies toward graduation.
- The last day to add a class is Friday, August 24.
Family Scholar House (FSH) is an organization that provides single parent families with the resources that they need to help break the cycle of poverty through education. This past Friday, some of our first-year law students volunteered at FSH, organizing items from a school supply drive based on the specific needs of the parents and their children. Though most of the needs have been met, it has come to our attention that flash drives are in high demand, as the families may not always have easy access to a computer or printer.
The students that volunteered for this service project remembered that they all received a free 1GB USB drive from LexisNexis during orientation. Many law students either already have a flash drive, or use internet services such as iCloud and DropBox.
If you would like to donate your flash drive to FSH, please drop it off in Dean Ballard's office this week. Students who donate their flash drive on Tuesday, August 21, will receive a second raffle ticket for the 1L Daily Docket drawings. Professor Kathy Bean will deliver all donated flash drives to FSH at the end of the week.
