Fall 2004 Registration. The final Fall 2004 schedule,
the Registration Bulletin, and the course and exam grids
to this page and are available in print form outside
the third floor cafeteria. Registration runs through Tuesday,
May 4. You may register at any time during that period.
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 online registration
site on or after Thursday, May 6. Registering for a class
during the initial registration period is no guarantee that
you will be admitted into the class – you must check the
web site on or after Thursday, May 6 to learn what classes
you have been admitted into.
Please note the following corrections and addition to the
Tax Policy seminar: This seminar was listed on the
class grids by mistake. It will not be offered.
Intellectual Property in the High Tech Era: The credits
for this intensive course will not count toward the minimum
or maximum Fall credits a student may take. (If you wish
to take this course, but it will cause you to exceed your
Fall semester maximum credits, please contact me so that
we can adjust your maximum credits in the system.)
Redesigning the Health Care System seminar: This
new seminar has been added to the Fall 2004 schedule. It
will meet Mondays, 4:00 - 5:50 pm, and will be taught by
Professor Michele Baker Richardson. The course number is
620-071. The course description is as follows: This seminar
will address the debate now raging across America about
what should be done to improve the way we respond to injuries
suffered during medical treatment. While some rely on the
civil justice system and tort law developed to address medical
malpractice, others challenge that system and argue for
one or another reform approach. We will critically analyze
several of the major proposals for systemwide reform, and
work toward developing an innovative and effective proposal.
Prerequisites: None. Recommended: Medical Malpractice.
Intensive Trial Advocacy. Please note that registration
for both the August 2004 and the January 2005 sessions of
Intensive Trial Advocacy take place as part of Fall 2004
registration. See the listing for Intensive Trial Advocacy
in the preliminary Schedule of Classes for details.
Spring 2005 Preliminary Schedule. The preliminary
schedule of classes for the Spring 2005 semester is linked

is only preliminary – there will be additions to the class
list (in particular, we anticipate adding several seminars)
and other changes made before the schedule is finalized.
The final schedule will be issued during the Fall 2004 semester,
when registration for Spring 2005 classes will also take
place. If you have any questions or comments about the preliminary
