Notice to Graduates: Deadline for Clearing Out Lockers. To prepare for the arrival of the new class in the Fall, we need to clear out the lockers of all students who have graduated. Please clear your lockers out no later than Monday, August 1. Anything left in lockers after that date will be removed. If you are unable to clear your locker out by that date, please contact me to make arrangements for your locker contents to be set aside for you. Note: If you have not yet graduated, you do not need to clear out your locker -- you will keep the same locker until you graduate.

Class Ranks for Spring 2005.
The class ranks as of the end of the Spring 2005 semester have been posted and are available through Web for Students.

London Law Consortium Program: Brochures Available.
Chicago-Kent offers a semester of legal study in London each Spring semester as part of a consortium with six other schools. If you are interested in the London Law Consortium for the Spring 2006 semester, please pick up a copy of the program brochure from Denise Lang outside my office (Suite 320C). Spaces in the program will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We must submit to the program administrators completed applications from all of our participating students no later than Friday, September 2, 2005. If you wish to discuss the program in more detail, contact Professor David Rudstein (drudstei@kentlaw.edu; 312/906-5354).

Orientation Leaders and Mentors Wanted.
Each year, entering students tell us that much of their most informative and valuable information comes from other students. As someone who has been there, your advice can be critical to the success of our incoming class. As an Orientation Leader, your tasks may include leading a lunch discussion with a group of students on the first day of Orientation (Monday, August 15); helping take ID photos; answering questions and giving advice; and whatever other help we end up needing. As a Mentor, you will be paired with one or two first-year students to provide one-on-one advice and guidance about adjusting to the law school experience.

If interested in being a mentor: Fill out the online form linked to this page by August 12, 2005. You will be contacted with your match information during Orientation week.

If interested in being an Orientation Leader: Please e-mail me at ssowle@kentlaw.edu with the following information:

-Name
-Are you available to lead a lunch discussion with a group of students (divided by Legal Writing section) on Monday, August 15, 12:00-1:00? (If so, please provide the name of your first-year Legal Writing professor.)
-Are you available to assist with ID photos on Monday, August 15, 1:00-3:00 pm, and/or 7:20-8:00 pm?
