Be Heard - Contribute to Brandeis' Growth and Development

Our law school is currently in the process of doing some future planning and looking to get "ahead of the curve" on potential changes in legal education.  Your input, as students and eventual alumni, is vital to helping the school pin-point what is working, and where the school might not be meeting your expectations.  The school's Strategic Planning Committee has developed an 8 questions SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) survey for you to complete.  Please take about five to ten minutes to complete the survey (linked below) by Friday, August 30.  Thanks! (Note: if the survey does not automatically appear once you click the link, check to make sure you are logged on to the website with your school user I.D. and password).

Federalist Society Interest Session, room 175 on Thursday Sept 5 at 12pm

This interest session is for all individuals who are interested in being involved with the Federalist Society and its mission. The Society is generally conservative and libertarian leaning with a focus on the Constitution and its structure for our government. It was founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and "that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be."

 

Come join us for a short informational session about what we do, upcoming events, and socializing. Food will be provided. If you want to attend and can't, then e-mail Jacob Sims at jbsims02@louisville.edu
