Community Safety Alert. There have been two recent sexual assaults in the Loop. The police have advised women in the area to be cautious of their surroundings and to walk in groups whenever possible. A flyer with more details, and a composite sketch of the suspect, is available at the Security Desk in the main lobby. As noted in a separate entry below, whistles are available for safety purposes at the Security Desk. Please note that you may request a guard to escort you in the evenings to destinations close to the Law School.

Fire Drill.
We would like to thank students, faculty, and staff for their cooperation with the recent fire drill. In one instance, however, a student refused to leave the building when instructed to do so.  I would like to remind everyone that it is a Code of Conduct offense to "[fail] to comply with directions of unversity officials ... acting in performance of their duties." In the event of a real fire, the speed with which we clear the building could be a life-and-death issue. You should assume that there is a real fire whenever the fire alarms go off, and you should comply promptly with any instructions from administrative staff or faculty in any such situation.

Political E-Commerce Course. A one-credit course on Political E-Commerce will be offered during the remainder of the current Fall semester. If you are interested in enrolling, please contact Dean Krent (hkrent@kentlaw.edu) or Professor Warner (rwarner@kentlaw.edu). The course will meet once a week at a time to be determined. A description of the course follows: This is a practical exercise in legal analysis. The task is to develop a way to certify that web sites used by politicians conform to appropriate standards. The questions to be answered are: What are the appropriate standards? What form should the certification take? And, is certifying such web sites a commercially viable business? The results will form part of the business strategy of one of the very few election-oriented commercial web sites to survive the dot-com crash, and students will have the opportunity to work with the staff of that site. The course provides valuable real-world experience in e-commerce.

Correction: Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE). The deadline for the November 8 exam (not the March exam) was October 1, 2002, with a late deadline of October 17.

Public Safety Notice: Whistles Available. Anyone who would like a whistle for safety purposes can pick one up at the Security Desk in the main lobby.

Joke of the week. Did you hear about the guy who jumped of a Paris bridge? He was in Seine.
