Fall 2003 Course Information. We have made the following changes to the Fall 2003 class schedule:

(1) Law and Bioethics: This course may now be taken for seminar credit. If you are interested in choosing this option, please contact me at ssowle@kentlaw.edu.

(2) Section 1983/Constitutional Torts seminar: The day/time of this seminar has been changed to Wednesdays, 4:00-5:50 pm.

(3) Legal Drafting: Section 424-053 (Wednesdays at 7:35 pm) has been canceled due to low enrollment.

Fall 2003 Initial Reading Assignments and Course Books. Reading assignments for the first week of the Fall 2003 semester will be posted on the Student Portal page no later than Wednesday, August 6. You may ask the bookstore to hold your Fall course books for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you. If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, call the bookstore at 312/906-5605. In addition, you may order your course books over the Internet by clicking on the Follett's Bookstore link on the Student Portal page.

Intensive Trial Advocacy -- Seat Available in August Session. A seat has opened up in the August session of Intensive Trial Advocacy 1 (Saturday, August 16 - Saturday, August 23, 2003). If you are interested in taking this seat, you can register through the online registration system (first-come, first-served). The course number is 541-071.

Orientation Leaders and Mentors Wanted. Each year, entering students tell us that much of their most informative and valuable information comes from other students. As someone who has been there, your advice can be critical to the success of our incoming class. As an Orientation Leader, your tasks may include leading a lunch discussion with a group of students on the first day of Orientation (August 18); helping take ID photos; answering questions and giving advice; and whatever other help we end up needing. As a Mentor, you will be paired with one or two first-year students to provide one-on-one advice and guidance about adjusting to the law school experience.

If you are interested in becoming an Orientation Leader or a Mentor (or better yet, both), please e-mail me at ssowle@kentlaw.edu as soon as possible. Please include the following information in your e-mail:

1. Name
2. Section (Day or Evening)
3. Planned year of graduation
4. Would you like to be a Mentor?
(If so, what areas of law most interest you, and what organizations and activities are you involved in?)
5. Would you like to be an Orientation Leader?
(If so, what is your availability August 18-August 21? For purposes of organizing the lunch discussions on August 18, who was your professor for Legal Writing?)

Joke of the week. Did you hear about the guy who fell into the upholstery machine? Don't worry -- he's fully recovered.
