Important Information About Spring 2006 Exam Rescheduling. The Student Handbook requires that you take your final exams at the times scheduled unless you have an exam conflict (as defined below), or you have a "serious illness or other extraordinary or compelling reason" beyond your control. If you have an exam conflict or believe you have other reasons justifying the rescheduling of an exam, please complete the Final Exam Reschedule form on the Web for Students site (log onto your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the Final Exam Reschedule form). The form will be available starting Wednesday, March 29. The deadline for submitting an exam reschedule request is Friday, April 14. This deadline will be strictly enforced. If your request is approved, the Registrar's office will notify you later this semester of the rescheduled date, time, and location of your exam.

Under the new policy adopted by the faculty in December, a student is deemed to have an "exam conflict" if the student has two exams at the same time, or has two or more exams within 24 hours (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., or at 6:00 p.m. and 1:15 the following afternoon). A conflict does not exist if two exams are scheduled exactly 24 hours apart (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. one morning and 8:30 a.m. the next morning).

Summer 2006 Schedule. The Summer 2006 schedule of classes and Registration Bulletin will be available outside the third floor cafeteria and through the Student Portal web page on Thursday, March 30.

"The Legacies of Nuremberg" Lecture Series and Exhibits. On March 29 and 30, the Chicago Bar Association, in conjunction with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Chicago Public Library, will be sponsoring a series of lectures and exhibits "exploring the Holocaust, the Nuremberg Trials, and their lasting influence on our system of justice." One of the lectures, an address on "The Third Reich and the Legal Profession" by Dr. William Meinecke, will be held here at Chicago-Kent on Thursday, March 30, 9:30-11:00 am in the Auditorium. For details about this and the other events, click here or pick up a brochure from the table outside the third floor cafeteria. All of the events are free and open to the public except the lunches each day, the opening breakfast, and the closing dinner.
