Academic Calendar Reminder. Please note the following dates for the closing weeks of the Spring semester:

Read Period runs from Wednesday, May 3 through Sunday, May 7. Exams begin Monday, May 8 and end on Friday, May 19.

Summer 2006 Registration. Initial registration for Summer 2006 classes is now over. Fortunately, we were able to accommodate all student registration requests -- we did not have to drop anyone from any of the summer courses due to oversubscribed classes.
The registration system has reopened. You may add an open class, or drop a class and receive a tuition refund, through the end of the first week of the Summer term.

Fall 2006 Preliminary Schedule.
The preliminary schedule of classes for the Fall 2006 semester will be distributed no later than Thursday, April 20, outside the third floor cafeteria; an online version will be available on the main Student Portal page. The final schedule and Registration Bulletin will be issued the following week.

Spring 2006 Final Exams.

•Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current semester is available here. You will be notified of your Spring exam number and the classroom assignments for your exams prior to the start of exam period.

•Exam Reschedule Requests.
The deadline for submitting exam reschedule requests has now passed. If you submitted a reschedule request, we will notify you as soon as possible about the results of your request.

•Exams on Computer Sign-Up: Deadline April 21. 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 is now open and runs through Friday, April 21. To register, log onto your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the appropriate form.

•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.

Teaching Evaluations. Teaching evaluations will be distributed in the coming weeks to elicit students' opinions about the quality of teaching at the Law School. Instructors will review the responses to improve the quality of their instruction and courses. The evaluations are also considered as one important factor in tenure, promotion, and compensation decisions for full-time faculty and are used as a factor in determining the effectiveness of part-time instructors. Evaluations are anonymous and will not be available to professors until grades are turned in.

Joke of the Week. Ever wonder about those people who spend 2 dollars for a little bottle of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backwards.

Poem of the Week. This week's poem is "A Supermarket in California," by Allen Ginsberg.
