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 here.

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 early in the week of April 18 outside the third floor cafeteria; an online version will be available on the main Student Portal page. The final schedule and Registration Bulletin will be issued the following week.

Spring 2005 Exams. The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page. The Registrar's office will notify you later this month of the classroom assignments for your exams.

Exams on Computer Sign-Up.
See the Registrar's section of the Record for information on signing up to take your exams on computer.

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.

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.
