SBA Reading Week Poll!!!!

The Student Welfare Committee, which consist primarily of faculty, wants to receive input on creating a "Reading Week," also known as a "Dead Week," for spring semesters.  This would involve having a full week, Monday-Friday, with no classes after the last day of class in the spring semester.  The first week of finals would commence the following Monday-Friday, followed by the weekend of the Kentucky Derby, and then finals would resume/conclude the week after the Derby. 

This is not an SBA agenda. This idea is not sponsored by myself or anyone on SBA.  Please consider your decision carefully.  There is a poll on TWEN to voice your opinion on the issue.   

To take the poll go to the TWEN page and add the course "SBA Reading Week Poll."  Then then click on the "customized polling" link on the left side of the screen to vote.  The link to TWEN is http://lawschool.westlaw.com.

Tax Enthusiasts

Dear Tax Enthusiasts,
 
The UK Tax Law Society is in the process of lining up events that will be open to both Louisville and NKU students!!  Such events include a "Careers in Tax Law" panel discussion and a social event (likely to be held in Louisville) with local tax attorneys.  If you are interested in pursuing a career in tax law, these events will be extremely beneficial to you.  These events will not only be educational in nature, but will also provide an invaluable networking opportunity to those in attendance.  The dates/times for these events are TBD, pending the availability of our guest attorneys.
 
If you would like more information or think you might be interested in attending either (or both) events, please send me an email, keith.tidwell@uky.edu, expressing your interest.  We look forward to meeting you!
