UofL Law Brandeis Book Exchange



One of our own, Gavin Noffsinger, through the power of Facebook, has created a new way to sale and buy law school textbooks.  Frustrated by the local prices of law textbooks, Mr. Noffsinger created a Facebook group, UofL Law Brandeis Book Exchange, to help Brandeis law students sale and/or exchange their textbooks with other Brandeis law students.  I strongly encourage you to check out the group and determine for yourself whether it is something that will help alleviate the stress of purchasing textbooks.  On another note, I hope everyone is enjoying the end of summer break and I look forward to seeing you all very soon.
