Spring 2006 Schedule and Registration.
Final Spring 2006 Schedule and Registration Bulletin. The final schedule and Registration Bulletin for the Spring 2006 semester are now available outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions are also available on the Student Portal page (click on the Spring 2006 link), or by clicking here.

Registration Instructions. Registration will take place Thursday, November 17 through Tuesday, November 22. You may register at any time during that period. Registration will take place through the Online Registration system (linked to the Student Portal page). After the end of the registration period, the registration requests will be processed according to each student's registration priority. In other words, registration will not be conducted on a first-come, first served basis; as long as you register during the designated period, you will have an equal chance of being admitted to a class as other students within your registration priority group.

Registration for First-Year Students. Although first-year students have set schedules, you still must register for your Spring courses using the Online Registration system. Please be careful to register for the doctrinal classes listed for your current section, and for the Legal Writing section taught by your current professor.

Fall 2005 Final Exams. The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page.

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.

Exams on Computer Sign-Up. Many professors allow students to take their exams on computer (either lab computers or students' own laptops, or both). Registration for taking exams on computer begins on Monday, November 14 and runs through Wednesday, November 30. To register, log onto your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the appropriate form.

Intensive Trial Advocacy: Seats Still Available in January 2006 Session.
Registration for the January session of Intensive Trial Advocacy (January 7-January 14, 2006) took place as part of Fall 2005 registration. However, several spaces are still available. Please contact me if you are interested in being added to the class.
