Are you a first-year law student in the UB School of Law? Wondering how you can do well in this new and often tough environment?
On Thursday, Sept. 6, Prof. Byron L. Warnken, J.D. '77, will host "First Year Success: Winning the Battle in the Most Important Year," a frank discussion on what you can do to help ensure your academic progress, both in the short and long term. Learn the keys to law school success from the master himself—a professor and practicing attorney with more than 30 years of experience.
This session will be offered at two different times to accommodate day and evening students: noon (in the Moot Court Room) or 5 p.m. (in LC 201) (please plan to attend one session only). "First Year Success" is sponsored by the Black Law Students Association and the Office of Academic Support.
Warnken recently was named the 2012 recipient of the Maryland State Bar Association's Robert C. Heeney Award. The award is the MSBA's "lifetime achievement award" in the field of criminal law. It is selected annually by the 500-member MSBA Criminal Law & Practice Section, which consists of judges, prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys.
Warnken is the 25th recipient since the inception of the award.
