Louisville Law Clinic Reception

April 7, 2009, 5:30pm – 7:30pm
Middleton Reutlinger 26th floor, Brown & Williamson Tower, 401 S Fourth Street
Sponsored by: Carrabba's Italian Grill, Middleton Reutlinger, and Stites & Harbison
Registration Cost: Free, but reservations are appreciated.

Please make plans to join the UofL Alumni Association, UofL School of Law, and the UofL School of Law Alumni Council for the UofL Law Clinic Open House and Reception.

The focus of our evening will be to showcase the UofL Law Clinic, which opened in fall 2008, becoming the first Law Clinic in the history of legal education in Louisville. This clinic enables the law school to transform its entire program of education in a revolutionary fashion. It refocuses legal education as a primarily (or even exclusively) classroom-based endeavor into an active, hands-on enterprise of learning by doing.


The Law Clinic epitomizes the University of Louisville's commitment to preparing its graduates for instant and lasting impact in the workplace and the community at large. Dean Jim Chen remarks, "There simply is no better way to learn the law than handling real cases and representing real clients." The Law Clinic will assign students to individual clients and individual cases. Those students will handle those matters under the careful supervision of Stallings Professor of Law Lars S. Smith.
