Piper Lecture. Faculty and students are encouraged to
attend the 27th annual Kenneth M. Piper Memorial Lecture on
Tuesday, April 5, at 11:30 am in the Auditorium. The
program’s focus is “The Aging of the American Workforce.”
The lecturer will be Dr. Sara Rix, Senior Policy Advisor to
the AARP Foundation and one of the foremost experts on aging
and the workforce. She will discuss such issues as whether
employers will face labor shortages as the workforce ages
that will prompt them to find ways to attract and retain older
workers, whether available jobs will appeal to older workers
and the legal and institutional barriers that older workers
face. Commentary will be provided by David Kadue, a partner
in the Los Angeles office of Seyfarth Shaw, and Shaun O’Brien,
the Assistant Director of Public Policy for the AFL-CIO.

about applying for Summer clinical programs, is available
outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions are also

Registration for Summer classes will take place from Thursday,
April 7 through Monday, April 11. 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. Applications for Summer clinical
programs are due by Tuesday, April 5.
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 13. 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
13 to learn what classes you have been admitted to.
