Welcome back, students and faculty! We hope you don't get a parking ticket during the first week of classes, but KU Law students in "Traffic Court" are here to help if you do. “Nobody likes getting parking tickets on campus. Instead of just making people pay it, we have a unique option for students or faculty to appeal to a court.” Tags: The KU Court of Parking Appeals #KUexperience #KUstudents #TrafficCourt
