Academic Success Tip - Handling Pressure

Determine your current areas of confusion and get help now.  Concepts often build on one another – if you wait too long, you will be hopelessly lost.  Review your briefs and class notes and determine what questions you have at this time.  Talk with classmates who understand the material.  Ask professors questions.  Use a study aid to clarify a topic.

Summer Union Intern Program co-sponsored by the Kentucky Labor Institute and participating unions

The purpose of this program is to promote among union members, and especially younger members, a positive understanding of the essential role unions play in today's society.  It will also offer interns the opportunity to have a first-hand experience of the actual functioning of a modern union.  The internship will also serve to both educate and train future youthful union leadership.  (The internship is open to all college students, not only law students.)

A stipend of $2,000 will be paid to students for their work over the summer.

For additional details and how to apply, see attachment.
