Fall 2005 Registration. The preliminary schedule of classes for the Fall 2005 semester is available outside the third floor cafeteria and through the main Student Portal page (click on the Fall '05 link). The final schedule and Registration Bulletin will be issued on Tuesday, April 26. Registration will take place from Thursday, April 28 through Monday, May 2.

Corrections to the Preliminary Schedule:
*Money Laundering is 3 credits (not 2 credits).
*The Clinical page of the schedule incorrectly listed the work expectations for Summer clinical programs instead of Fall programs. The correct expectations are as follows: "Students are expected to put in a minimum of 224 hours (an average of 16 hours a week for 14 weeks) for 4 hours of credit, a minimum of 168 hours (an average of 12 hours a week for 14 weeks) for 3 hours of credit, and a minimum of 112 hours (an average of 8 hours a week for 14 weeks) for 2 hours of credit."

"Where Do We Go From Here?" Program. This program introduces first-year students to the course requirements after the first year, the certificate programs offered by Chicago-Kent, and clinical, externship, and other program opportunities available to upper-level students. The program will be offered at the following times:

Day Division: Tuesday, April 26, 12:00-1:30 pm (Auditorium).
Evening Division: Thursday, April 28, 8:309:30 pm (Rm. 590).

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.

Dean's Certificate for Illinois Bar Exam.
We will mail a Dean's Certificate to the Illinois bar examiners for every graduating student after final grades for the Spring semester are received and processed, and we can confirm completion of all graduation requirements. We compile the list of graduating students from the list of those who submitted Applications for Graduation listing Spring 2005 as their final semester.

Bar Exams in Other Jurisdictions. If you plan to take a bar exam outside of Illinois, you should provide the Registrar with appropriate forms for the Law School to complete as soon as possible.
