In response to a series of shootings in West Louisville during May 2012, Mayor Greg Fischer appointed a 37-member Violence Reduction Task Force, which met first in mid-June. The group continues to work on its final report, which goes to Mayor Fischer on Monday, October 1.

Looking for more options in your law school wardrobe? Get creative and design the UofL Law shirt you've always wanted! The SBA is proudly sponsoring a contest to create a new Brandeis School of Law School T-shirt and inviting all current students to submit a design. Entries must be received by September 18 at 5:00 p.m. EST. Designs will be posted online and voting will run from September 25 through September 27 at 5:00 p.m. EST. The winning design will be produced and available for purchase from the SBA. Please see attachments for additional details, official rules, and the timeline for the competition.

The SBA is seeking volunteers for the upcoming University-wide Phone-a-thon. During the week of September 17, the Phone-a-thon will be exclusively contacting law school alumni for the annual giving campaign. Alumni giving supports our law school in numerous ways and is an integral part of our law school's success and academic reputation. This is a great way to network and let alumni know we appreciate their support!
Volunteers are needed for the following nights and times. There will be a required 30-minute training session prior to making calls in order to familiarize volunteers with the phone software and calling script. Calling times are flexible so if you are not able to commit to the whole time period please don't let that discourage you from helping out. Any of your time that you can give is appreciated! Please contact Jessica Williamson (Jessica.firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information or to sign up.

What do you want in life? Money? Fame? Love? Marriage? Success? A job? What would you do if I told you that it can be yours? Perception is reality. We can be our own worst enemies because most of us choose to cage ourselves in our own realities. Your mind has unlimited potential. You can harness its power and utilize it to get anything you want. Come listen to Larry Forman speak on our own personal mental boxes and learn how to escape them and the vicious loop of negative emotion. You will learn how to set goals and achieve anything the mind can conceive. Remember that no goal is too extreme, and no objective is out of reach. See you there, my friends. Sponsored by Hillel.
The meeting will be held on Thursday September 20 at Noon in room 175. Bring your own lunch.
