CALI Award Winners for Summer 2001.  The CALI Excellence for the Future Award, sponsored by the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction, is given to the student or students who receive the highest grade in each section of each graded course. The CALI Award winners for Summer 2001 courses are linked to this page. Congratulations to all of you who received the award -- you should be proud of your achievement.

Academic Calendar for 2002-2003.  The Academic Calendar for 2001-2002 is linked to this page.

Fall 2001 Final Exams. The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page. The Student Handbook requires that you take your finals at the times scheduled, even if you have two exams in a row, or one at 6:00 p.m. and another at 8:30 a.m. the next morning.  Absent extraordinary circumstances, the only exception is if you have three exams scheduled consecutively (which rarely happens) or two exams scheduled at the same time.  If you believe you have an exam conflict or other circumstance justifying the rescheduling of an exam (see Student Handbook sections 7.2 and 7.3), please contact me no later than Friday, November 9, 2001. 

Intensive Trial Advocacy: January 2002 Session.  Although there currently are no open seats in the January session of Intensive Trial Advocacy, it is possible that some seats may open up between now and early January.  If you would like to be placed on a wait list for the course, please contact the Registrar, Chris Matheny (e-mail: CMATHENY).  For details about the course, see the Fall 2001 Schedule of Classes. If you are currently registered for the course and decide to drop it, you should also contact Chris Matheny, to avoid incurring a tuition penalty and a WP (Withdraw Passing) grade appearing on your transcript.

Panel Discussion: Introduction to Islam.  A panel discussion entitled "Introduction to Islam" will take place on Tuesday, November 13, 2001, 6:30-8:00 p.m., at St. James Parish Hall (29th and Wabash in Chicago).  The panelists will be Professor Marcia Hermansen (Islamic Studies, Loyola University of Chicago), Professor Aminah McCloud (Islamic Studies, DePaul University), and Imam Frederick Thaufeer al-Deen.  The moderator will be Professor Scott C. Alexander (Islamic Studies, Director of Catholic-Muslim Studies, Catholic Theological Union).

Debt Management Seminar.  A seminar on debt management will be held on Thursday, November 1, 2001, 12:00-1:00 p.m., in Room C25.  The seminar will help you learn how to manage your debt -- a skill that can help you take out loans, buy a house or car, rent an apartment, and allow you to have more money to spend on what’s really important to you. Refreshments will be served and prizes given away.

Joke of the Week.  Question: Why are jack-o'-lanterns usually smiling? Answer: If you had the contents of your head scooped out, you'd have a stupid grin on your face too!
