1L Election Campaigning Begins!

Attention 1Ls!  You will be hearing from your classmates who have decided to run for section representative for SBA.  Heed their words and consider which person you would like to represent your questions and concerns.  Formal campaigning begins today (September 22).  Voting will begin on September 24 and will end September 26.  Unofficial Results will be announced on Spetember 26 with appeals due on September 27.

Staying Safe On Campus and Utilizing the Police Escort Service

We have all received the emails and heard the news of the seriousness of crime that is happening on and around our campus.  Safety is a top priority for every student to develop and broaden their educational bounds.  Due to the nature of being a law student, we all find ourselves staying late at the law school to read and/or study for our classes.  Sometimes these study sessions can take you into the wee hours of the night.  As such, you may find yourself walking home or back to your car in the dark.  While walking with a buddy is plus, you might find yourself alone.  
 
The SBA urges you not to take the risk of walking alone.  UofL Campus Police provides a FREE service where they "are able to escort anyone on campus up to four blocks off campus."  To request an escort, please call 852-6111.  If you would like to stay up-to-date on the crimes reported around campus, head on over to:
