Summer 2002 Registration. The Registration Bulletin, including the schedule of classes, will now be available on Monday, April 8, outside the third floor cafeteria and on the Student Portal page of the Law School's web site. (We hoped to issue the schedule earlier, but are still trying to confirm some anticipated course offerings.) Registration will take place from Friday, April 12 through Monday, April 15. You may register at any time on those days. To register, go to the Student Portal page and click on the Online Registration link. You can use any computer with Internet access, either inside or outside the Law School. 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 within your registration priority group.

To learn what classes you have been admitted into, you must check the registration web site on or after Friday, April 19. 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 Friday, April 19 to learn what classes you have been admitted to.

Fall 2002 Preliminary Schedule. The preliminary schedule of classes for the Fall semester will be available outside the third floor cafeteria and on the Student Portal page of the Law School's web site during the week of April 15.

Notice About Legal Drafting.
For a number of years, Legal Drafing has been offered during the summer term. The upcoming 2002 summer term, however, probably will be the last time the course will be offered during the summer. Because the summer term is only eight weeks long, the class meets for 3.5 hours a week. This is a less than ideal schedule for a writing course, especially given the fact that most students who take the course also are working and/or taking another course. It is difficult to cover as much material on this schedule compared with a regular semester term, and missing only one or two classes means missing a significant fraction of the term. The eight-week timetable also makes the spacing of assignments difficult, as the professors have a hard time returning assignments, with meaningful comments, before the next assignment is due. For these reasons, the Legal Research and Writing Program decided several years ago to stop offering Advanced Research during the summer term. In light of these considerations, and because we are committed to providing students with the best possible research and writing instructions, we likely will not offer Legal Drafting after the 2002 summer term. Please plan your course scheduling accordingly.

Joke of the Week.
A young boy decided to surprise his mother by bringing her a cup of coffee in bed. He'd made the coffee himself and was very proud. His mother tasted the coffee and almost spat it out, it was so bad. As she forced down the last sip, she discovered three little toy soldiers at the bottom. When she asked about this, her son said, "you know, mom -- 'the best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup!'"
