The mission of the Education Law and Policy Society (“Ed Law”) is to strengthen University of Louisville – Brandeis School of Law students’ commitment to achieving educational equity in public education by providing: 1) resources for coursework, advocacy, research, and careers related to education and the law; 2) forums for discussing all educational issues including the achievement gap, the cycle of poverty, racial/ethnic/gender equality, higher education, and relevant reform measures with legal practitioners, professors, and colleagues; and 3) volunteer opportunities that directly impact students in underserved areas.

The 1L Mock Interviews are taking place tomorrow, January 21st, at the offices of Frost Brown Todd. Please see the important details set out below. Also, a schedule of the interview times is attached.
Parking: Two options. Street parking should be available at no charge or there is a parking garage attached to the building for $1.50/hour.
Check in: First, you must go to the security desk on the ground floor to sign into the building (they will have your name on a list). After signing in, go to Frost Brown Todd reception on the 32nd floor where you will check in for your interview. Someone will then direct you to Conference Room H to wait until your interview is ready to begin. Fruit, coffee, and orange juice will be available.
Preparation and Attire: In order to get the most out of this you should treat it as a real interview in every way, meaning: (1) dress in professional interview attire, (2) bring copies of your resume, (3) be prepared to ask questions, and (4) research your interviewers. You will not need a cover letter, writing sample, or list of references.
Make sure to write thank you notes to your interviewers. There is a limited supply of Brandeis School of Law stationary available for those who would like to use it.
As the President of the SBA and a representative of our student body, I would like to ask each of you to complete your course evaluations. These evaluations are very important in evaluating the education we are receiving at the Brandeis School of Law, as well as the performance of our professors. They only take a short amount of time, but are an important measure for each of you to take. I appreciate you taking the time to complete them. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks - Kristie Wetterer
