New Policy for Posting Flyers for Student Organizations!

In order to have one centralized location to view upcoming student organization-sponsored events for the week and to clear the law school's walls and steps from clutter, we're introducing a new policy for posting Recognized Student Organization (RSO) events. 

Flyers for all RSO and SBA events must be posted on the new cork-board in the Mosaic Lobby.  The board is labeled, "This Week's Events" and will be dedicated to the law school's weekly RSO and SBA events.  Please ensure enough room is left for every RSO having events during the week to add a flyer. For those events that are more than a week away, please continue to post updates and reminders in the Student Orgs daily email.

We think this new policy will be a win-win for everyone.  Students will now have a quick reminder when they walk into the building about events for the week.  Student organizations will save time, money, and energy not having to post 15 flyers around the law building.  The building itself will look less cluttered.  Faculty and staff will not have to remove old flyers.  And, paper will be saved!  We ask for your cooperation with the new policy.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jacob Giesecke, SBA President, or Dean Ballard. 

Need Money for Your Organization?

University of Louisville's CPC (Club Programming Committee) provides funding for student organizations' special events (i.e. guest speakers) that would not be possible without this financial assistance.  CPC requires a detailed budget of how the funding will be used. 

For guidelines and the application, please visit  The fall 2012 application deadline is September 19, 2012, at 3 pm for events occurring after October 10, for the fall semester.

Deans' Townhall Meeting

The deans of the law school will be having a townhall meeting on September 4th, 2012. The meeting will be in Room 275 from 1:00-2:00. This is your time to have any questions you have answered. All students are invited and encouraged to attend. Those students interested in asking the deans of the law school any questions should draft and send your questions to be addressed by 5:00 p.m. on August 31st. This will allow enough time for the deans to get answers to your questions. 

Please email your drafted questions to Ms. Wimberg at
