New Policy on Adding Classes. Under a new policy adopted by the faculty, you may add an open course without special permission until the end of the first week of Spring classes; during the second week, however, you may add an open course only with permission of the instructor. You may not add a course after the second week of the semester.

Fall 2001 Exams.

Exam Schedule.  The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page

Consulting Laptops During Exams.  Unless your professor specifically authorizes it, you may not consult materials (notes, outlines, etc.) stored on your laptop computer during an open book or limited open book exam; you are limited to consulting print materials authorized by your professor. Please note:  This is separate from the issue of whether you may write your exam on your own laptop. The limitation described above applies whether you are writing your exam by hand or on a lab or laptop computer.

Important Information About Taking Exams on Computer.  If you will be taking one or more of your exams on computer (either a lab computer or your own laptop computer), please review the announcement recently e-mailed to students by the Center for Law and Computers; the announcement is linked to this page.

Spring 2002 Initial Reading Assignments and Course Books. Reading assignments for the first week of the Spring semester will be posted on the Student Portal page on Thursday, December 20. If you will not have Internet access in August, please notify us that you would like a paper copy mailed to you by sending me an e-mail (SSOWLE) with the address where you can be reached over the summer; or fill out the bottom portion of a form that will be available outside the third floor cafeteria. Assignments not received by December 20 will be posted on the second-floor bulletin board as they are received. 

You may ask the bookstore to hold your Spring course books for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you over the holiday break.  If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, stop by the bookstore before you leave, or call the bookstore at 312/906-5605.  In addition, you may order your course books over the web by clicking on the bookstore link on the Student Portal page.

Joke of the Week.  A guy once entered a pun contest.  He send in ten different puns, hoping that at least one of the puns would win.  Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.
