- Colleen Clines, the co-founder and director of Anchal Project
- Unveiling of Not 4 Sale by donor Nancy Baar
- A Silent Auction will also be held during the event
This Conference will not only allow you to become more aware of human trafficking, but your support of this event will also help University of Louisville women attend a Summer Leadership and Service Trip to Peru to learn about this epidemic from women who have fallen victim to sexual violence and human trafficking.
For those unfamiliar with this event, every quarter, YPAL's Legal Committee has put on the Legal Series which features a prominent figure in Louisville with a legal background who will discuss his or her career path and how to succeed as a young professional in the legal community. Past speakers have included KFC's Chief Legal Officer Cathy Tang and Bobby Ferreri, Executive Director of Enterprise Corp (for GLI). The upcoming Legal Series will feature Gill Holland, the co-creator of the Green Building and innovator behind the Nulu area in Louisville. Gill will provide an extremely interesting look at the different paths a young professional with a legal background can take, as he is involved in several endeavors, including the music and film industry, in which he just placed a film in the Sundance Film Festival.

Exam numbers have been emailed to all students taking exams on 12/3, 12/4, and 12/5. Please note: Students will have a different exam number for each exam. Please be sure to use the correct exam number when you take an exam. If you use the wrong exam number, it will likely delay the posting of your grade in the class.
If you are taking an exam on 12/3, 12/4, and/or 12/5, and you do not believe you have received your exam number(s) from Ms. Barbara Thompson, first check your junk email. If you are still unable to find your exam number(s), please contact Ms. Thompson today at 852-6367, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need to request a make-up exam, you must complete a "Request for a Make-Up Exam" form and submit it to Ms. Barbara Thompson in Student Records by 4:00 p.m. on November 29.
Forms are available in the Student Life hallway, and are also available on the law school website at http://www.law.louisville.edu/academics/exams.
A student has an exam conflict and is entitled to a make-up exam in two instances:
1. a student has two exams scheduled to begin within 12 hours of one another; OR
2. a student has an exam at 6:00 p.m. or later on one day and another exam at 9:00 a.m. the following day.
In all cases, students must obtain prior approval to take a make-up exam.
Your SBA is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring two Course Evaluation Days. Students are invited to complete course evaluations in Mosaic Lobby, and enjoy coffee, snacks, and bottled water courtesy of SBA.
Worried that your course evaluation might not be confidential? See the attached handout prepared by the Provost's Office regarding course evaluations and student confidentiality.
To the 1Ls who showed up as “Mock Jurors” –
Thank you so much for taking the time to attend my class. Your presence gave the Trial Practice Workshop students an incredible opportunity. It would not have been the same without you!
I hope that you enjoyed the experience and that you learned something about the trial process. It was a pleasure having you in my class.
Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have any follow-up questions. Otherwise, good luck in law school and in your future endeavors.
Melanie Schneider, Adjunct Professor
