This year's program consists of two videos presenting the views of Law School faculty on recent Supreme Court decisions. Those videos will be posted on this site on or before September 17, 2008. They will also play on monitors at the Law School on September 17.
The Supreme Court of Kentucky will hear oral arguments in the Allen Courtroom from 9:00 AM to noon on Wednesday, September 10 and Thursday, September 11. All students are welcome to observe. Please refer to the schedule for a list of cases to be heard.
Following the arguments on Wednesday, there will be a short Q&A session in the courtroom after which all law students are invited to have lunch and further discussion with the Justices in the Cox Lounge. Pizza will be served, but bring a beverage.
Following the final oral argument on September 11, the justices will address any questions from the audience on matters not related to the cases just heard or to other pending cases.
If you're unable to attend, you may tune in for the live webcast.

Lawlapalooza, the Louisville legal community's annual battle of the bands, will be held Thursday, October 2, 2008, at the Phoenix Hill Tavern. This fun-filled evening of music benefits the Judge Ellen B. Ewing Foundation, which provides summer fellowships for University of Louisville law students to work in the areas of family law, domestic violence and spouse abuse, and HIV/AIDS.
General admission tickets go on sale August 1 for $20 ($25 at the door) and may be purchased online at www.law.louisville.edu/lawlapalooza. Every purchase isn't just a ticket to a great time. It's a tax-deductible donation to the Judge Ellen B. Ewing Foundation!
To compete, each band must have at least one member who is an attorney or law student. In previous years, bands have run the gamut of musical styles: from Irish folk, to rock and roll, to Klezmer.
