Thank You, Dean Urbach

The University of Louisville Law Review joins the entire law school community in thanking Dean Kathy Urbach for her dedicated service to the law school over the last four years. Dean Urbach has been a tireless advocate for students—always there to lend sound advice and guidance to students navigating the unfailingly difficult path of defining and achieving their professional ambitions. Her rare—indeed unique—blend of encouragement, enthusiasm and inspiration has been a source of great strength to a great many.

Numerous students who have secured jobs in the private sector, pursued careers in public service, obtained federal clerkships, or developed a fuller sense of their skills, ambitions and opportunities, likely have at least one thing in common: they spent many hours in Dean Urbach’s office revising their resumes, strengthening their cover letters, and mapping out a plan for the future and developing the confidence to see that plan through. Thank you, Dean Urbach, for always standing for, behind and with us.

In order to better accommodate students who will be leaving Louisville immediately after the end of finals, the Law Review will now accept write-on essays submitted solely via TWEN.
