The Brandeis Academic Fellow Applications are now available, and attached here!
Service as a Brandeis Academic Fellow is an academic honor, and an excellent talking point on your professional resume. In addition, work as a Fellow is a great opportunity to help other law students while reducing your student loan amount. As a Fellow, you will also have an opportunity to keep your knowledge of Contracts fresh in preparation for the Bar Exam. In addition, you will likely develop a professional relationship with the Academic Success Program Director and the professor teaching your group’s Contracts class, building great referral sources for letters of recommendation, etc. For further information, review the Brandeis Academic Fellow FAQs attached here.
Application packets must be turned in to Laura Grubbs, Academic Success Program Director, by May 31, 2014. However, you may submit your application anytime after you have registered for classes for Fall 2014. Applications are now being reviewed and potential candidates will be invited to interview on a rolling basis.
If you have any questions, please contact Director Grubbs at email@example.com or (502) 852-1477.
The Academic Success Resource Library (the "ASRL") is located in the Office of Academic Success, Room 112, and is a library of supplemental study materials that students may check out for the duration of the semester. There are still resources available for every course. Feel free to stop by and check out a study aid to assist you with final exam review.
For those of you who have checked out study materials, please do not forget to return them to the ASRL after your exams. Also, donations of any study materials are always greatly appreciated!
In spite of training during the 1L year, regular announcements, information on our Web site, and policy, instructing students to always identify themselves on Exam4 practice tests using one's ULink user name (e.g., lhoswa01), some students continue to use their UofL Student ID Number, instead.
In the over ten years that the Brandeis School of Law has permitted students to take exams on computer, we have never required, asked or wanted students to identify themselves on any practice or real exam using student ID numbers. We never have, and we never will, so I am completely puzzled about how any student ever understood that he/she should use his/her student ID number on any electronic exam, practice or real.
Last spring, with the introduction of the app on the School of Law's Web site, which automatically sends an e-mail confirming receipt of one's valid Exam4 practice test, it became even more imperative that students submit practice tests using their ULink user names, and only their ULink user names.

Students - before finals begin, please remember to check your mailbox and recycle anything that you do not want to keep. Award certificates for students unable to attend the Awards Ceremony have been place in student mailboxes. So, please remember to mosey down to the basement to pick up your mail.
If you are planning to take a make-up exam this spring semester, please submit your make-up exam request form by 4:00 p.m., Monday, April 21.
If you experience or have experienced any problem with Exam4 while taking or submitting a practice test, please report it on our new Error Reporting Form (login required). The information you provide is extremely helpful for identifying software bugs or incompatibilities between Exam4 or some of its features and particular operating systems
