A list of initial reading assignments
for Fall 2006 courses will be posted on this page and on

books be mailed to you. If you would like to take advantage
of either of these options, call the bookstore at 312/906-5605.

Spring 2006 CALI Award Winners.
The CALI Excellence
for the Future Award, sponsored by the Center for Computer-Assisted
Legal Instruction, is given to the student or students who
receive the highest grade in each section of each course.
The CALI award winners for Spring 2006 courses are linked
to this page
. If a section or a course is not listed,
that means the professor elected not to give a CALI award,
or we have not yet heard from the professor. Congratulations
to all of you who received an award -- you should be proud
of your achievement.
New ID Cards for Continuing Students.
On July 20,
the Law School introduced a new system for managing computer
lab printing and Library photocopying services. The new
system entails two significant changes:
The new system uses centrally
stored accounts that are linked to your photo ID card. All
students will now have a "cash account" into which
personal funds may be deposited for use with Library photocopiers
or computer lab printers.
Law School students will have
an additional "printing account" which will be
reset to the equivalent of 400 pages of printing at the
start of each semester. The print release stations in the
Law School computer labs will allow you to choose which
account each of your print jobs is charged to.
All students must obtain a new photo ID card in order to
use Library photocopying services and/or Law School computer
lab printing services. If you are a continuing student,
you may pick up your new card in the Registrar's office.
Summer hours for the Registrar's office are: Monday-Thursday
8:30-6:00, Friday 8:30-12:00.

Joke of the Week.
A guy shows up in a doctor's office
and says, "Help! I think I'm a moth!" The doctor
says, "I don't think I can help you -- you need the
psychiatrist next door. Why on earth did you come to me?"
The guy replies, "Your light was on."
