Have a Nice Summer! Congratulations on (almost) completing the school year. I hope you have a productive and restful summer. For those who are graduating this semester, good luck on the bar and in starting your careers.

Spring 2005 Final Exams.

Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page. You should have received an e-mail from the Registrar's office with room assignments for your exams. If you have not received that information, you can find it by logging into your Web for Students account and clicking on the "Spring 2005" link under "Schedule" (on the left hand menu), then scrolling down.

Exam Emergencies. If an emergency occurs that may prevent you from taking a final exam, you or someone on your behalf should call me (312/906-5282) as soon as possible. If you cannot reach me, call the Registrar's office (312/906-5080). Do not contact your professor, as this may compromise your anonymity. Please read Section VII of the Student Handbook, which contains the rules governing exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and related issues; and review Article II of the Code of Conduct in the Student Handbook.

Cell Phones During Exams. You are not permitted to use a cell phone during any exam, including during any restroom breaks. If you have a cell phone with you during an exam, it must be turned off and stored out of sight.

Consulting Laptops During Exams. Unless your professor specifically authorizes it, you may not consult materials (notes, outlines, etc.) stored on your laptop computer during an open book or limited open book exam; you are limited to consulting print materials authorized by your professor. Please note: This is separate from the issue of whether you may write your exam on your own laptop. The limitation described above applies whether you are writing your exam by hand or on a lab or laptop computer.

Access to Computer Labs During Exams. Because we use the computer labs during many of the exam slots during exam period, access for other purposes (e.g., printing out papers or exam outlines) is limited. Please keep in mind that there is a printer in the 5th Floor Student Lounge that you can use if the labs are all in use.

Summer 2005 Term Information.

Classroom Assignments. The Schedule of Classes for the Summer 2005 term, including classroom assignments, is linked to this page. Please note: Bankruptcy will meet in Rm. 520 (not Rm. 170 as previously announced), and Legal Externship will meet in Rm. 305 (not Rm. 355).

Initial Reading Assignments. A list of initial reading assignments for Summer 2005 courses is linked to this page, and is also available through the main Student Portal page (click on the Summer 2005 link). Please note: If a course is not listed, that means we did not receive an initial assignment from the professor.

Fall 2005 Registration. The initial registration period is now over. If you have not already done so, please log back into the online registration system to see what classes you were admitted into. You may make adjustments to your schedule through the end of the second week of the Fall semester. The Fall 2005 Registration Bulletin, which includes the final schedule of Fall classes and course and exam grids, is available outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions of these documents, and of the preliminary Spring 2006 schedule, are available through the online registration link and the main Student Portal page.

Please note the following corrections to the Fall schedule:

*Alternative Dispute Resolution: This course will meet Tuesdays, 6:00-7:50 pm (not 4:00-5:50 pm). The course number has been changed to 575-051.

*Personal Income Tax: The evening course grid inadvertently listed the evening section of Personal Income Tax as meeting Mon./Wed. at 6:00. As indicated on the actual schedule (preliminary and final), the class will actually meet Tues./Thurs. at 6:00.

In addition, the charge for student health insurance next year was given incorrectly in the Registration Bulletin. The annual premium will be $885 (not $891).

Fall 2005 Initial Reading Assignments and Course Materials. A list of initial reading assignments for Fall 2005 courses will be posted on the main Student Portal page (click on the Fall 2005 link) no later than Friday, August 5. If you will not have Internet access in August, please e-mail me (SSOWLE) with the address where you can be reached over the summer, and we will mail a print copy to you.

You may ask the bookstore to hold your Fall course materials for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you over the summer. If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, stop by the bookstore before you leave, or call the bookstore at 312/906-5605. In addition, you may order your course books over the Internet by clicking on the Bookstore link on the Student Portal page.
