Fall 2004 Initial Reading Assignments and Course Materials. Reading assignments for the first week of the Fall semester are linked to this page, and may also be accessed from the Student Portal Page (click on the Fall '04 link under "Academic term information"). The list of initial assignments may be updated periodically as we receive additional assignments.

If you have not yet returned to school, you may ask the bookstore to hold your Fall course books for you until you 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, stop by the bookstore or call 312/906-5605. In addition, you may order your course books over the Internet by clicking on the bookstore link on the Student Portal page.

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 16); 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:
