Brandeis Inn of Court Student Nominations

Student Nominations for the Louis D. Brandeis American Inn of Court are now being accepted.

The Inn's purose is to promote professional skills and values, with a special emphasis upon ethical and responsible advocacy in state and federal courts.  Each Inn consists of distinguished members of the bench and bar, as well as a limited number of carefully selected students.

If you will be a third-year law student in the fall and would like Dean Chen to nominate you for student membership in the Louis D. Brandeis American Inn of Court during the 2012-2013 academic year, please send an email to Ms. Wimberg (b.wimberg@louisville.edu) by Friday, April 13.  Selection is based upon your demonstrated interest in advocacy and your student leadership or academic record.

The Brandeis Inn hosts an orientation reception for new members. Thereafter, the Inn will meet six times during the academic year on Tuesday evenings. At each meeting, members of the Inn will participate in an educational program and enjoy a meal together.  Information regarding meeting dates for the 2012/2013 academic year will be circulated to nominees.

Entrepreneurship Clinic Info Session

The Entrepreneurship Clinic is hosting an information meeting for all students on Wednesday, April 11, at noon in Room 177. The Clinic Director, Professor Mike Slaven and a panel of students currently participating in the Clinic will be present to discuss clinic activities, to share their experiences and to answer your questions. Lunch will be provided. Come and learn about what the Entrepreneurship Clinic is all about and enjoy some food!

Summer School--Maximum Hours

Students may take up to 8 credit hours in summer school. This reflects the fact that summer school is in session for half the time of the spring and fall terms.  An 8 hour workload in the summer is the equivalent of a 16 hour workload in the spring or fall.

 In exceptional cases--for example, a student who hopes to graduate early--a student may be allowed to take more than 8 hours. However, you must obtain the permission of Dean Cross to enroll in more than 8 hours.

You can sign up in the Mosaic Lobby.  There is no limit to the number of teams.  Anyone can play!

We'll also send off the UofL Law softball team (Louisville Law b90) to compete in the 29th annual University of Virginia National Law School Softball Invitational Tournament.  This will be the second team UofL Law has sent to represent the school.  The team departs on March 30 for the competition.
