Academic Calendar Reminder. The academic calendar for the remainder of the semester is as follows:
Last regular day of classes: Monday, May 3Spring 1999 Final Exams. The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page. Room assignments for exams will be posted in the main lobby and on the second-floor bulltein board at a later time. If an emergency occurs that may prevent you from taking a final exam, you or someone on your behalf should call Chris Matheny (312/906-5271) or me (312/906-5282) as soon as possible. If you cannot reach either of us, call the Registrar's office (312/906-5080). Please read Section VII of the Student Handbook, which contains the rules governing exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and related issues; and review Article II of the Code of Conduct on pages 67-69 of the Student Handbook.
Fall 1999 Registration.
After Add/Drop Day. After Add/Drop Day, if seats becomes available in a course that was previously closed, this will be noted on the Class Status Report posted on the second floor bulletin board; the seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Seats often do become available in closed courses after registration and before Fall classes start, so it is a good idea to check the Class Status Report occasionally. This applies to summer session classes as well.
Immigration Law & Policy. Constitutional Law is no longer listed as recommended preparation for the course.
International Law Courses. The International Policing course,
and both courses offered by Professor Blum (The Arab-Israeli Conflict in
International Law, and The Charter of the United Nations), will count toward
the Certificate in International and Comparative Law.
Dean's Certificate for the Illinois Bar Exam. We will mail a Dean's Certificate to the Illinois bar examiners for every graduating student after final grades for the Spring semester are received and processed. The certificates will be in Springfield before the deadline.
Bar Exams in Other Jurisdictions. If you plan to tkae a bar exam outside of Illinois, you must provide the Registrar with appropriate forms for the law school to complete as soon as possible.
Survey of Student Attitudes. I will soon be mailing out a survey to graduating seniors, first-year Evening Division students, and second-year Day Division students. The survey will elicit your attitudes on a variety of issues relating to the law school's faculty, academic program, and administrative services. Please take a few minutes to complete and return the survey.
Good Luck! I wish all of you -- those who are graduating
and those who will be returning in the Fall -- the best of luck with your
exams and with your summer activities. For those who will be taking the
bar exam this summer, my only advice is to study hard and keep in mind
that the pain is of relatively short duration. You will soon be lawyers
instead of law students, and I'm sure you'll do yourselves (and the school)
