Student Bar Association News
All law students (whether participating in the 10:00 a.m. University-wide ceremony and/or the 5:00 p.m. Law ceremony) order their graduation apparel from Herff Jones at https://collegegrad.herffjones.com or http://colleges.herffjones.com/college/louisville/ or https://collegegrad.herffjones.com/capgown/product/2205011. The same apparel is worn by JD students regardless of what ceremony students choose to attend. Students can visit the University Commencement webpage at http://louisville.edu/commencement for information on ordering caps and gowns, but that webpage then directs all students to the Herff Jones webpage for ordering.
The Herff Jones website currently reads that the commencement ceremony is Saturday May 11, 2013 at 10:00 AM. This is being changed to reflect the actual law school ceremony, which starts at 5:00 pm. Regardless, the ordering process remains the same.
All students are invited to attend a special program on Thursday, February 21, with guest speaker Edwin Chandler. With the help of the Kentucky Innocence Project, Mr. Chandler was exonerated in 2009, after serving 9 years in prison for robbery and second degree manslaughter. In 2012, he was awarded an $8.5 million settlement from Louisville Metro Government.
Mr. Chandler will speak to UofL Law School's Kentucky Innocence Project class at 1:30 in Room 177. All law students are welcome to attend.
