Hooding Poll for Graduating Students

Students graduating next month are encouraged to vote for the faculty members whom they wish to present the graduates' hoods at the Law School Convocation.  The online survey form is at www.law.louisville.edu/students/sba/grad-survey. Graduating students must log in with their Lawnet credentials to vote in the poll and may only vote once.  You may select up to three faculty members.  Only the names of those faculty members who will be present at the Convocation are listed.

Judicial Candidates Visit Law School

Several dozen students, staff, and faculty from the law school attended the Brandeis Judicial Forum on October 7, 2008. The Student Bar Association sponsored this opportunity to meet candidates seeking positions in the District Court, Circuit Court, and the Kentucky Supreme Court.

While the law school makes no endorsements, we'd like to thank each of the following candidates for having taken time out of their busy schedules to attend.

New Student Mentoring Program

Rising 2 and 3Ls,

For the 2008-2009 school year, the SBA is starting a student mentoring program for incoming 1Ls. If you would like to get to know members of the incoming class and give them personalized advice on how to approach and navigate through the first year of law school, please consider becoming a student mentor. Responsibilities may include participation at orientation related events, as well as being available throughout the school year, especially during the beginning of fall semester. We need all the help we can get, so, if you are at all interested, contact Will Corrigan (wmcorr01@louisville.edu) before July 4. Thanks!

FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS

FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS

Club Programming Committee (CPC) applications are now being accepted for fall 2008 events. Over $35,000 in funds will be allocated to organizations for fall 2008 programs. CPC is a joint initiative coordinated by SGA and the Dean of Students Office. The CPC is composed primarily of students, so students will decide what sort of funding directives best support student life. SGA has made a major financial commitment to support CPC, and other departments have also provided funding (Dean of Students Office, Housing, and VP for Student Affairs).

During the spring semester CPC allocated funds to over 40 separate events. CPC monies are intended to afford recognized student organizations the opportunity to contribute to the quality of campus life by sponsoring special events and programs that may not be possible without this financial assistance. Proposal requests should demonstrate how funding the initiative would inspire a vibrant campus life and an engaged student body. Every request received will be reviewed by the CPC on a case-by-case basis.

 

The CPC guidelines and applications are available at the following web address:

http://louisville.edu/student/forms/cpcform.htm

Completed applications should be returned to the Dean of Students Office (SAC W301) by April 21t, 2008 at 3:00pm. If you have any questions about submitting an application, contact the Dean of Students Office @ 852-5787.
