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.

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.

listed the evening section of Personal Income Tax as meeting
Mon./Wed. at 6:00. As indicated on the actual schedule (preliminary
