Summer 1999 Registration.  The Summer 1999 schedule of classes and Registration Bulletin will be distributed this week outside the third floor cafeteria.  Summer session registration will begin on Wednesday, April 7.

Fall 1999 Registration.  The preliminary schedule of classes for Fall 1999 will be distributed during the week of April 5 outside the third floor cafeteria.  I will hold meetings with first-year students later that week to discuss course selection.  The Registration Bulletin and final class schedule will be distributed during the week of April 12.  Registration for Fall classes will begin on Monday, April 19.

Intensive Trial Advocacy 1.  The law school will offer both an August session and a January session of Intensive Trial Advocacy 1 next academic year; details appear below.  We regret that we were unable to arrange for a session of Intellectual Property Intensive Trial Advocacy.

To indicate your interest in enrolling for either session of Intensive Trial Advocacy 1, please submit an Intensive Trial Advocacy Request Form to the Registrarís office by Thursday, April 8, 1999.  Forms are available in the Registrarís office and outside my office (Suite 320).  Enrollments are limited, so there is no guarantee that you will be placed in either session.  The names of students selected for each session and the waiting lists will be posted outside the Registrarís office on Wednesday, April 14, 1999.

If selected, you should register for the course on your Fall 1999 registration form.  Both sessions are considered Fall courses for purposes of tuition and computing the Fall semester grade
point averages.  However, the credits will not count as part of your Fall semester course load for
purposes of credit hour limitations.  Notice to Evening Division students: If Intensive Trial
Advocacy brings your total credit hours for the Fall semester to at least 12, you will
automatically be billed for student health insurance unless you waive coverage; instructions for
waiving coverage will appear in the Fall Registration Bulletin.

Intensive Trial Advocacy 1  Ė 3 credits
               Session 1:     Saturday, August 14 - Saturday, August 21, 1999

Classes will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day, including the intervening Sunday.  Prerequisite: Evidence.  Seats in this course will be allocated as follows: one-third for Evening Division students, one-third for current second-year Day Division students, and one-third for current first-year Day Division students.  If demand exceeds the number of seats available, students will be chosen at random within each category. If you enroll in the course and later decide to drop it, you must notify the Registrar by Friday, May 28, 1999 (Session 1) or Friday, September 3, 1999 (Session 2), or you will be charged full tuition for the course unless another student takes your seat.  Please note:  If you enroll in Intensive Trial Advocacy 1, you must enroll in Trial Advocacy 2 in the semester immediately following.
