Week of April 12, 2004
Summer 2004 Registration. The Summer 2004 Registration
Bulletin, including the schedule of classes, is available
outside the third floor cafeteria and through the Student
Portal page on the Law School's web site. Registration
began on Thursday, April 8 and continues through Monday, April
12. You may register at any time during that period. 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. Evening Division students have
priority over Day Division students for Summer registration.
Within divisions, registration priority is based on anticipated
graduation date, with the earliest graduation date having
the highest priority.
To learn what classes you have been admitted into, you must
check the Online Registration site on or after Wednesday,
April 14. 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 Wednesday, April
14 to learn what classes you have been admitted to.
Teaching Evaluations. Teaching evaluations will be
distributed in the coming weeks to elicit students' opinions
about the quality of teaching at the Law School. Instructors
will review the responses to improve the quality of their
instruction and courses. The evaluations are also considered
as one important factor in tenure, promotion, and compensation
decisions for full-time faculty and are used as a factor in
determining the effectiveness of part-time instructors. Evaluations
are anonymous and will not be available to professors until
grades are turned in.
