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 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 Registration. The Summer 2006 Registration
Bulletin, including the Schedule of Classes and information
about applying for Summer clinical programs, is available
outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions are also
available on the Student
Portal page (click on the Summer '06 link near the top),
or by clicking
Registration for Summer classes will take place from Thursday,
April 6 through Monday, April 10. You may register at
any time during that period. To register, go to the Student
Portal page and click on the Online Registration link.
You can use any computer with Internet access, either inside
or outside the Law School. Applications for Summer clinical
programs are due by Tuesday, April 4.
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. Evening Division students have
priority over Day Division students for Summer registration.
Within divisions, registration priority is based on anticipated
graduation date, with the earliest graduation date having
the highest priority.
To learn what classes you have been admitted into, you
must check the Online Registration site on or after Wednesday,
April 12. Registering for a class during the initial
registration period is no guarantee that you will be admitted
to the class -- you must check the web site on or after
Wednesday, April 12 to learn what classes you have been
Law Week Activities. The Student Bar Association

Calendar for details of all the events.
Joke of the Week. A guy went to the optometrist's
office. "I keep seeing spots in front of my eyes,"
he said. The receptionist asked, "Have you seen a doctor?"
"No," the guy replied, "just the spots."
Poem of the Week. This week's poem is actually a
set of song lyrics, in honor of Earth Day later this month:
Arms of Eden," by Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer.
