The Louisville Bar Association’s 2018 Summer Law Institute (SLI): The SLI will be held at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law the week of Sunday, June 10 to Saturday, June 16. This is a 7- day residential program for high school students interested in the law and the legal profession. As in prior years, we hope to have field trips to the federal courthouse, the Judicial Center, and Bellarmine University. The daily agenda will include panel discussions with attorneys and judges, mock trial sessions, and topics taught by attorneys and law school professors. The SLI is funded in part by the Louisville Bar Foundation which allows us to keep the cost to students at $200, including housing and meals. A limited number of scholarships are available. The application deadline is Wednesday, April 11 and applications should be mailed to the Louisville Bar Association or scanned and emailed to lhardwick@loubar.org. Applications are available online or in academic services.

Attention all students –Intramural basketball is drawing to a close, and that means it is almost time for Intramural Volleyball! There will be a freshman-sophomore division and a junior-senior division. Any student NOT playing a spring sport, sanctioned or club, is eligible to play. Intramural volleyball is NOT run through the house system and there is NO CHARGE to play – that’s right – no money!!  So, get all your friends together, choose a captain, and fill out a roster. Rosters are available at the front table in the cafeteria or see Mrs. Mason in the Trinity Hall Technology Center anytime. Games will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays between 3:15 and 5:00. So, if you can play volleyball after school on Mondays and Wednesdays, starting in early March, get your team together, pick up a roster, fill it out, and turn it in to Mrs. Mason in the Trinity Hall Technology Center. Rosters are due by Thursday, March 1. A mandatory captain’s meeting will be held on Monday, March 5th after school in the computer lab to discuss rules and schedules. Play will start Monday, March 12th and run thru the end of April. If you want to play intramural volleyball, but don’t know anyone else who is playing, or you can’t get a full team together, see Mrs. Mason, she’ll match you up with others like you or a team that could use another player.

Any senior interested in participating in this year’s Pink White Dance should plan to attend the interest meeting during Advising on Monday, March 5. You must sign up with Ms. Stich by March 2 to be called out of Advising.
