Fall 2004 Final Exams.
Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page. You will be notified of the classroom assignments for your exams prior to the start of exam period.

Room Assignments and Exam Procedures. You should have received an e-mail from the Registrar's office with room assignments for your exams. If you have not received that information, you can find it by logging into your Web for Students account and clicking on the "Fall 2004" link under "Schedule" (on the left hand menu). Room assignments will also be posted in the front lobby.

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 "On Line Forms" (on the left hand menu).

Availability of Professors' Old Exams. Many professors make their old exams available for students to review. Exams dating from 1992 and before are bound in volumes available in the 10th floor reading room in the Library. Exams after 1992 are available online by going to http://library.kentlaw.edu/Services/students.htm, clicking on the Exams Database link on the left, and then clicking on the link indicated there.

Exam Emergencies. If an emergency occurs that may prevent you from taking a final exam, you or someone on your behalf should call me (312/906-5282) or Jamie Lake (312/906-5247) 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. Please read Section VII of the Student Handbook, which contains the rules governing exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and related issues; and review Article II of the Code of Conduct in the Student Handbook.

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 just 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.

Access to Computer Labs During Exams. Because we use the computer labs during many of the exam slots during exam period, access for other purposes (e.g., printing out papers or exam outlines) is limited. Please keep in mind that there is a printer in the 5th Floor Student Lounge that you can use if the labs are all in use.

Spring 2005 Registration.
Changes to Class Schedule. Please note the following corrections to the Spring 2005 schedule:

Gift & Estate Tax: Personal Income Tax must be completed or taken concurrently.

International Organizations: The course number was listed incorrectly in the schedule. The actual course number is 315-001.

Legal Writing 3 (section 431-004, Tues./Thurs. 4:30): This section has been canceled due to low enrollment.

Adding and Dropping Classes. The initial registration period is now over. If you have not already done so, please log back into the online registration system to see what classes you were admitted into. You may make adjustments to your schedule through the end of the second week of the Spring semester. The Spring 2005 Registration Bulletin, which includes the final schedule of Fall classes and course and exam grids, is available outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions of these documents and access to the online registration system are available here and through the main Student Portal page (click on the Spring '05 link).

Initial Reading Assignments and Course Books. Reading assignments for the first week of the Spring semester will be posted on the Student Portal page (under the Spring '05 link) on Tuesday, December 21. Assignments not received by December 21 will be posted as we receive them.

You may ask the Bookstore to hold your Spring course books for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you over the holiday break. If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, stop by the bookstore before you leave, or call the bookstore at 312/906-5605. In addition, you may order your course books over the web by clicking on the bookstore link on the Student Portal page.

Joke of the week. "I like dogs. I do. But they're not that bright, really. Let's examine the dog mind. Every time you come home, he thinks it's amazing. He can't believe that you've accomplished this again. You walk in the door. The joy of it almost kills him. 'He's back again. It's that guy! It's that guy!'" (Jerry Seinfel
