Spring 2002 Preliminary Schedule.  The preliminary schedule of classes for the Spring 2002 semester will be distributed next week outside the third floor cafeteria.  The final schedule and Registration Bulletin will be issued the following week.

Exams on Computer Sign-Up.  You may sign up online to take exams on computer by going to and loggin in.  After logging in to the system, click on the link entitled "Register for Exams on Computer." This will bring up the registration form in the right-hand frame. You will be allowed to register to take an exam on computer only if the professor has authorized this option. If the option is not available for a certain course, the professor has not returned the request form or does not allow exams on computer. If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar's office.  (Please note:  if you previously checked the registration system and did not find one or more of your courses listed, you should check back now, as additional classes were added to the list in the past few days.)

Law as a Profession Day: A Message from the Dean.  Dean Perritt recently issued this announcement about the upcoming Law as a Profession program:

I am pleased to announce the Chicago-Kent College of Law Strategies for Excellence: Law as a Profession program for the 2001-2002 academic year.  A graduation requirement, attendance at this program is mandatory for all 2L Day and Evening Division students. This year's program will be held on Wednesday, February 6, 2002. 

Law as a Profession was created by the law school in 1995 to supplement other aspects of the curriculum and to reinforce our emphasis on professionalism.  In 1997 the program won the E. Smythe Gambrell Award from the American Bar Association, recognizing it as a model for other law schools around the country.  Through its content, we expose you to issues that will confront you in practice and better prepare you for the expectations of both legal employers and clients. I encourage you to participate enthusiastically.  In doing so, you will get a sense not only of the challenges that you will face after law school, but also of the fun you can have, the power you will have as a change agent and champion of justice, and of the personal fulfillment you can realize.

Program Registration Information:
More details regarding the program can be found on the dedicated Record page at  Because each student must indicate break-out session preferences, pre-registration is required and may be completed on-line using the registration link on the listed web-page. The registration deadline is November 16, 2001.  If you have attended this program in a previous year and have received this e-mail in error, or should you have any questions, please send an e-mail message to:

Joke of the Week.  A guy walks into his doctor's office.  He has a sausage sticking out of his ear, a waffle stuck under his arm, and bacon lodged in his nose.  He asks worriedly, "Doc, what's wrong with me!"  The doctor replies, "the problem is clear -- you're not eating properly!"
