8/4/06 Update - Initial Reading Assignments Now Available

Fall 2006 Initial Reading Assignments and Course Materials. Reading assignments for the first week of the Fall semester are available on the Fall 2006 Term Information page -- click here, or go to the main Student Portal page and click on the Fall '06 link under "Academic term information." Not all professors submit initial assignments, so do not be concerned if there is no listing for one or more of your Fall courses. The list of initial assignments may be updated periodically if we receive additional assignments.

If you have not yet returned to school, you may ask the bookstore to hold your Fall course materials for you until you arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you. If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, 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.

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.

Notice to Recent Graduates. If you are graduating this semester, please read the information below about your Kent e-mail, printing, and network accounts and your locker. If you have any questions, please let me know. Note: If you are not graduating this semester, you will keep your e-mail account and locker until you graduate.

E-mail and Network Accounts. E-mail and network accounts will be terminated on Monday, July 31. However, IIT offers a free e-mail service to all alumni. (The e-mail address on the account will not be the same as your current Kentlaw e-mail address; it will be an IIT address.) For details, go to the CLC's Record page, or click here.

Clearing Out Lockers. Please clear your lockers out no later than Tuesday, August 1. Anything left in lockers after that date will be removed. If you are unable to clear your locker out by that date, please contact me to make arrangeents for your locker contents to be set aside for you.

London Law Consortium: Brochures Available. Chicago-Kent offers a semester of legal study in London each Spring semester as part of a consortium with six other schools. If you are interested in the London Law Consortium for the Spring 2007 semester, please pick up a copy of the program brochure from Denise Lang outside my office (Suite 320C). Spaces in the program will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We must submit to the program administrators completed applications from all of our participating students no later than Tuesday, September 5, 2006. If you wish to discuss the program in more detail, contact Professor David Rudstein (drudstei@kentlaw.edu; 312/906-5354).

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."

Poem of the Week. This week's poem is "Off the Record," by Ronald Wallace.
