Have a Nice Summer! Congratulations on (almost) completing the school year. For those of you who will be back next year, I hope you have a productive and restful summer. For those who are graduating this semester, I look forward to seeing you at Commencement -- and I wish you good luck on the bar and in starting your careers.

Spring 2006 Final Exams.

•Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current semester is available here. You should have received an e-mail from the Registrar's office with room assignments for your exams. If you have not received that information, you can find it by logging into your Web for Students account and clicking on the "Spring 2006" link under "Schedule" (on the left hand menu), then scrolling down.

•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 Section 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.

Summer 2006 Term Information.

•Classroom Assignments. The Schedule of Classes for the Summer 2006 term, including classroom assignments, is available here.

•Initial Reading Assignments. A list of initial reading assignments for Summer 2006 courses will be available no later than Monday, May 15. It will be linked to this page, and available on the main Student Portal page (click on the Summer '06 link). Please note: If a course is not listed, that means we did not receive an initial assignment from the professor.

Fall 2006 Registration. The initial registration period is now over. If you have not already done so, please log back into the online registration system to see what classes you were admitted into. You may make adjustments to your schedule through the end of the second week of the Fall semester. The Fall 2006 Registration Bulletin, which includes the final schedule of Fall classes and course and exam grids, is available outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions of these documents, and of the preliminary Spring 2007 schedule, are available through the online registration link and the main Student Portal page.

Please note the following corrections/changes to the Fall schedule:

*Law, Policy & International Development: This class will be offered with a seminar/course option (previously it was listed only as a seminar). The class will meet Thursdays 4:00-5:50 pm. For those taking it as a course, the exam will be Thursday, December 14, 6:00 pm. If you want to register for the class as a course, use course number 465-081. If you want to register for the class as a seminar, use course number 670-081. (If you have already registered for the class as a seminar, you do not need to re-register.)

*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.

*Employment Discrimination (3650-001): The final exam for 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 for these courses. The exams will be Thursday, Dec. 21, 6:00 (the schedule listed these on the correct date, but erroneously said it was Friday).

Fall 2006 Initial Reading Assignments and Course Materials. A list of initial reading assignments for Fall 2006 courses will be posted on the main Student Portal page (click on the Fall '06 link) no later than Friday, August 4.

You may ask the bookstore to hold your Fall course materials for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you over the summer. If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, stop by the bookstore before you leave, or call the bookstore at 312/906-5605. In addition, you may order your course books over the Internet by clicking on the Bookstore link on the Student Portal page.
