Student Life News
Be prepared for course registration and choose the courses that are right for you. Do you want to enroll in an externship or an independent study? Do you need to request to enroll in more than 16 hours as a full-time student or 12 hours as a part-time student? Have you completed a degree checklist recently? Do you want to take non-law graduate level courses?
The Student Life Office will be offering course registration advising office hours for upper division students on March 28, 29, and 30. Stop by or make an appointment in advance to discuss any questions you may have regarding your Summer or Fall 2011 schedule, graduation requirements, externships, pre-registration permission forms, etc. Kathleen Bean, Associate Dean for Student Life, and Kimberly Ballard, Academic Success Director, will be available to provide one-on-one advising, and to answer questions about course selection. To sign-up for a time in advance, add your name to the appointment sheets outside offices 212 and 216.
Monday, March 28, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Tuesday, March 29, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Wednesday, March 30, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
McKenzie Cantrell initiated the idea and did much of the work, including a full day on a Saturday.
The funds will provide three scholarships for Central Law and Government Magnet students to attend the Summer Law Institute (a joint week-long program sponsored by the Brandeis School of Law, Bellarmine University, and the Louisville Bar Association). It will also support some of the costs for the team of four magnet seniors and two coaches to participate in the third annual Marshall Brennan Civil Liberties Moot Court competition in Philadelphia in early April.

Tuesday, March 8, 11:40 a.m.-1:00 p.m. It’s Carnival Time and the law school is hosting a Mardi Gras party for the whole school. We’ll have beads and music and a great (free) lunch for all – students, faculty, and staff. Feast on Cajun Fixings from Joe’s OK Bayou. There will be plenty of food (with an extra King Cake set aside for the evening students at 5:00 p.m.). See you there!
There are only a limited number of spots available on the team roster. The team will play in the weekly Attorneys League at Turners located on River Road Monday evenings. Game times vary from 6:30pm to 9:30pm depending on the number of teams registered. The league will begin play a week or two after Derby week.
