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.
Joke of the Week. "China has a population of a billion
people. One billion. That means even if you're a one in a
million kind of guy, there are still a thousand others exactly
like you." (A. Whitney Brown)
