[Orientation] Orientation Information
Dear First Year Students:
Right now the School of Law staff members are busy planning your orientation program, which will take place on August 11, 12, 13 and 14.
Tuesday, August 11, will include a welcome program in the morning to which friends and family are invited. Later in the day, you'll get your campus picture IDs, attend a law school IT training session, get a tour of the campus and law building, get your locker keys, and do other nuts and bolts sorts of things.
On Wednesday, August 12, you will attend several information sessions designed to prepare you for academic success in your first year of law school.
Thursday, August 13, will include a class on Contracts (your assignments will be sent in advance) and an opportunity to meet your professors.
And Friday, August 14, is your opportunity to participate in Orientation 2009 Community Service Day. Your Student Bar Association officers have planned a number of service events and we hope you'll all choose to participate. The community of Louisville will benefit from these projects but you'll benefit too, in two ways: you'll feel good about your volunteer work and you'll get to know your workmates, i.e., your classmates and upper-level students, along with some faculty and staff members. We'll have everything from litter pick-up in the park to serving meals at a shelter to painting walls at an animal rescue center to assembling care baskets for the Louisville Scholar house, a residential complex that offers affordable housing, education and child care for single-parents.
And there's more. So check back here for details and we'll keep you posted as plans progress.
