Student Life News
McKenzie Cantrell initiated the idea and did much of the work, including a full day on a Saturday.
The funds will provide three scholarships for Central Law and Government Magnet students to attend the Summer Law Institute (a joint week-long program sponsored by the Brandeis School of Law, Bellarmine University, and the Louisville Bar Association). It will also support some of the costs for the team of four magnet seniors and two coaches to participate in the third annual Marshall Brennan Civil Liberties Moot Court competition in Philadelphia in early April.
Thanks to the following for their support of this successful fundraiser:
- Dean Chen, who gave permission for the project

- Sheldon Haden, Annette Mattingly, and Angela Buckler (WLA members), for their generous contributions

Tuesday, March 8, 11:40 a.m.-1:00 p.m. It’s Carnival Time and the law school is hosting a Mardi Gras party for the whole school. We’ll have beads and music and a great (free) lunch for all – students, faculty, and staff. Feast on Cajun Fixings from Joe’s OK Bayou. There will be plenty of food (with an extra King Cake set aside for the evening students at 5:00 p.m.). See you there!
There are only a limited number of spots available on the team roster. The team will play in the weekly Attorneys League at Turners located on River Road Monday evenings. Game times vary from 6:30pm to 9:30pm depending on the number of teams registered. The league will begin play a week or two after Derby week.
Contact Steven Valdez at the Louisville Bar Association at 502.569.1357.
Next weekend (Feb 18 - Feb 20), the Law School will be hosting the Region 7 National Trial Competition at the Jefferson County Judicial Center. Fifteen law schools and thirty teams from Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky, will be participating.
So far, law students have volunteered for over 150 positions throughout the competition weekend, including serving as bailiffs and witnesses, assisting with scoring, and checking-in witnesses, competitors, and judges, etc. On behalf of the Moot Court Board, thank you!
We still need your help, though! We need 8 more witnesses for Round 1 (Friday afternoon), 15 more witnesses for Round 2 (Saturday morning), and 15 more witnesses for Round 3 (Saturday afternoon). If you can volunteer to play a witness during one or more of these rounds, please email Brian Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mr. Bennett will provide the information you need and will answer any questions that you may have. This will also count toward your public service requirement.
