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), Boo Choi (312/906-5286), 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 Registration Bulletin for Fall 2001, including the final Schedule of Classes, is available outside the third floor cafeteria; an online version is linked to this 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.

Correction:  The exam for the day section of Business Organizations will be on Wednesday, December 12, at 1:15 (not 8:30).  The time appears correctly on the exam grid accompanying the final schedule, but is listed incorrectly on the schedule itself.

Joke of the Week.  A guy goes into a restaurant for a Christmas breakfast while visiting his hometown for the holidays. After looking over the menu, he tells the waiter, "I'll have the Eggs Benedict." When his order comes, it's served on a large, shiny hubcap. The customer asks, "What's with the hubcap?" The waiter replies, "Oh, there's no plate like chrome for the hollandaise!"
