Spring 2001 Exam Schedule. 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 bulletin 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 governming exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and related issues.

Fall 2001 Class Schedule and Registration.  The preliminary schedule of classes for Fall 2001 is available outside the third floor cafeteria; an online version is linked to this page. The Registration Bulletin and final class schedule will be distributed on Thursday and will also be available on the law school's Intranet page

To register, go to the Law School’s Intranet page and click on the link entitled “Web Registration System.”  You can use any computer with Internet access, either inside or outside the Law School. Registration will be conducted on Monday, April 30 and Tuesday, May 1. You may register at any time on those days. After the end of the registration period, the registration requests will be processed according to each student’s registration priority. In other words, registration will not be conducted on a first-come, first served basis; as long as you register during the designated period, you will have an equal chance of being admitted to a class as other students with your registration priority group.

To learn what classes you have been admitted to, you must check the registration web site on or after Thursday, May 3. You may do this by gong to the same site as the one used for initial registration (i.e., go to the Intranet page and click on “Web Registration System”). Registering for a class during the initial registration period is no guarantee that you will be admitted to the class – you must check the web site on or after Thursday, May 3 to learn what classes you have been admitted to.

I will hold meetings with first-year students this Thursday, April 26 at 3:30 p.m. (Day Division students) and 5:15 p.m. (Evening Division students) in the Auditorium to discuss course selection for the Fall and suggestions for planning your legal education. If you are unable to attend one of these meetings, please feel free to contact me by e-mail, phone, or by stopping by my office. Upper-level students with comments on the preliminary schedule should also feel free to contact me.
