Exams on Computer. If you missed the initial period for
registering to take exams on computer, you may still do so
for any exam that still has computer slots available. (Please
keep in mind that not all professors allow students to take
exams on computer.) You may also change your exam preference
from computer to hand-writing. For both of these options,
log into your Web for Students account and click on the Register
for Exams on Computer link (under Online Forms).
Exam Emergencies. If an emergency occurs that may prevent
you from taking a final exam, you or someone on your behalf
should call Chris Matheny (312/906-5271) or me (312/906-5130)
as soon as possible. If you cannot reach either of us, call
the Registrar's office (312/906-5080). Do not contact
your professor, as this may compromise your anonymity.

Consulting Laptops During Exams. Unless your professor
specifically authorizes it, you may not consult materials
(notes, outlines, etc.) stored on your laptop computer during
an open book or limited open book exam; you are limited
to consulting print materials authorized by your professor.
Please note: This is separate from the issue of whether
you may write your exam on your own laptop. The limitation
described above applies whether you are writing your exam
by hand or on a lab or laptop computer.
Cell Phones During Exams. You are not permitted to
use a cell phone during any exam, including during any restroom
breaks. If you have a cell phone with you during an exam,
it must be turned off and stored out of sight.
Fall 2004 Registration: Updates. The initial registration

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.
Spring 2005 Preliminary Schedule: Correction. An
incorrect ending time was listed for Prof. Leech's seminar,

Joke of the Week. Question: What do Mack the
Knife, Winnie the Pooh, and Attila the Hun have in common?
Answer: Their middle names.
