Summer 2005 Registration. The Summer 2005 Registration
Bulletin, including the Schedule of Classes and information
about applying for Summer clinical programs, is available
outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions are also
available on the Student
Portal page (click on the Summer '05 link near the top),
or by clicking
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.
Fall 2005 Preliminary Schedule. The preliminary schedule
of classes for the Fall 2005 semester will be distributed

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,

Teaching Evaluations. Teaching evaluations will be distributed
in the coming weeks to elicit students' opinions about the
quality of teaching at the Law School. Instructors will review
the responses to improve the quality of their instruction
and courses. The evaluations are also considered as one important
factor in tenure, promotion, and compensation decisions for
full-time faculty and are used as a factor in determining
the effectiveness of part-time instructors. Evaluations are
anonymous and will not be available to professors until grades
are turned in.
