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. To learn what classes you
have been admitted into, you must check the online registration
site on or after Wednesday, May 3. Registering for
a class during the initial registration period is no guarantee
that you will be admitted into the class – you must check
the web site on or after Wednesday, May 3 to learn what classes
you have been admitted into.
Please note the following corrections to the Fall schedule:
*Environmental Law & Policy 1 (426-081): The class grids
correctly listed this course as meeting Mon./Wed. 4:00-5:25
pm; the schedule of classes listed it incorrectly as meeting
Tues./Thurs. (It will meet Mon./Wed.)
*Labor/Employment Class (266-001): The class grid correctly
listed this course as meeting Tues. 9:35-10:30 am; the schedule
of classes listed it as both Tues. and Wed. (it will meet
only on Tuesdays).
*Litigation Technology (254-081): This class will meet Saturdays,
9:00-12:00 noon, not Wednesdays 6:00-9:00 pm.

Prof. Eglit's day section of Employment Discrimination will
be Monday, Dec. 18, 8:30 am (not Wednesday, Dec. 13).
*Personal Income Tax (276-051) and Remedies (280-051): The
exam dates on the evening division schedule were incorrect

(the schedule listed these on the correct date, but erroneously
said it was Friday).
Spring 2007 Preliminary Schedule. The preliminary schedule
of classes for the Spring 2007 semester is available by clicking
here or by going to the main Student

or comments about the preliminary schedule, please feel free
to contact me by e-mail (SSOWLE), phone (6-5282), or by stopping

Spring 2006 Final Exams.
Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule
for the current semester is available
here. You will be notified of the classroom assignments
for your exams prior to the start of exam period.
Exam Emergencies. If an emergency occurs
that may prevent you from taking a final exam, you or someone
on your behalf should call me (312/906-5282) or Amanda Kastern
(312/906-5247) as soon as possible. If you cannot reach either
of us, call the Registrar's office (312/906-5080). Do not
contact your professor about any problem connected with your
exam, as this may compromise your anonymity. Please read
VII of the Student Handbook, which contains the rules
governing exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams,
and related issues; and review Article
II of the Code of Conduct in the Student Handbook.
Cell Phones During Exams. You are not
permitted to use a cell phone during any exam, including during
any restroom breaks. If you have a cell phone with you during
an exam, it must be turned off and stored out of sight.
Consulting Laptops During Exams. Unless
your professor specifically authorizes it, you may not consult
materials (notes, outlines, etc.) stored on your laptop computer
during an open book or limited open book exam; you are limited
to consulting print materials authorized by your professor.
Please note: This is separate from the issue of whether
you may write your exam on your own laptop. The limitation
described above applies whether you are writing your exam
by hand or on a lab or laptop computer.
Access to Computer Labs During Exams.
Because we use the computer labs during many of the exam slots
during exam period, access for other purposes (e.g., printing
out papers or exam outlines) is limited. Please keep in mind
that there is a printer in the 5th Floor Student Lounge that
you can use if the labs are all in use.
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.
