Fall 2002 CALI Award Winners.
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 course. The CALI Award winners for most Fall 2002 courses are linked to this page. If a section or a course is not listed, that means we have not yet received the name of the award recipient from the instructor; they will be published in a later issue of the Record. Congratulations to all of you who received the award -- you should be proud of your achievement.

Fall 2002 Grade Distributions.
The grade distributions for Fall 2002 courses are linked to this page.

Illinois Bar Exam: Q&A with Bar Examiners.
Larie Walton from the Illinois Board of Admissions to the Bar will be at the Law School on Monday, February 24, 2003, at 11:30 a.m. in Rm. C50 to answer questions from first-year students concerning the completion of your Bar Registration Application. The session will be held in room C50.

As announced in previous issues of the Record, first-year students who plan to take the Illinois Bar Examination after graduation should submit a Registration Application, which must be postmarked by March 1, 2003. The forms and instructions are available on the bar examiners' web site: http://www.ibaby.org/. Although you are not required to register as a first-year student, the advantage of doing so is that you will avoid paying a late fee of $350 imposed on those who register at any point after March 1 of their first year.

Lawyers' Assistance Program: Intervention Training.
Would you like to help your colleagues who need assistance with alcohol dependency, drug abuse, or other mental health issues? Are you interested in learning how to provide confidential assistance that will encourage recovery? Whether you are interested because you or someone close to you has had problems with substance abuse, or because you are interested in joining a great team of volunteers, your help will make a difference.

The Illinois Lawyers' Assistance Program is currently scheduling intervention training sessions in an effort to increase services to lawyers and law students. The training sessions will address the problems that lawyers, judges, and law students face in their professional and personal lives and explain how the intervention process can help those who may not realize they need help.

To learn more about future training sessions and about how you can help the Lawyers Assistance Program, please contact Janet Piper Voss, the Executive Director of the Program, at 312/726-6607 or illap@mindspring.com. You may also visit their website at http://www.IllinoisLAP.org.
