Fire Drill. We would like to thank students, faculty, and staff for their cooperation with the recent fire drills. We were pleased with how the drills went, but would like to pass along a few reminders:

*Please use the nearest staircase to exit the building -- do not use the elevators.

*Please do not take time to gather up your belongings -- your safety is more important than your possessions. If you feel that you must take any valuables with you, please "grab and go" -- do not waste precious seconds or minutes powering down your laptop computer or packing up your belongings.

*Once you exit the building, please move eastward down the sidewalk (toward the lake) so that you will be out of harm's way if any windows shatter. For your safety, please do not cross the street or step into traffic.

Illinois Bar Exam: Q&A with Bar Examiners for 3L/4L Students. Representatives from the Illinois Board of Admissions to the Bar will be at the Law School on Tuesday, November 7, 1:00-1:50 pm (for day students) and 5:00-5:50 pm (for evening students) in the Auditorium to provide information and answer questions from students in their final year of school concerning the completion of the bar application process and the character and fitness process. See my Record archives (the September 11 entry) for details about the application process for the February 2007 and July 2007 bar exams. We recommend that you download and look over the application materials available at www.ibaby.org before coming to the November 7 program.

A separate session will be held early in the Spring semester for first-year students; details will be announced in one of the January issues of the Record. See my Record archives (the September 11 entry) for details about the bar registration requirements for first-year students who plan to take the Illinois Bar Examination after graduation.

Lecture: Prof. Neal Katyal on "Guantanamo, the Supreme Court, and the Rule of Law." On Thursday, October 19, Professor Neal Katyal of Georgetown University Law School, the lead litigator in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, will give a public talk at 3:00 pm in the Auditorium. This event is sponsored by Chicago-Kent's Institute for Law and Humanities, and co-sponsored by the American Constitution Society. The talk is free and open to the public.

Student Health Insurance Cards: Now Available for Pick-up. The student health insurance cards have now arrived. If you have health insurance through the school and have not already received your card, you may pick it up from Denise Lang outside my office (320C) during normal business hours (except 1:00-2:00pm, when she is at lunch). Note to LL.M. students: Your health insurance cards may be picked up from Tasha Kincade in the Dean's Office (Suite 330). --SDS.

Joke of the Week. A teacher asks her students where they went on vacation. Timmy says, "my family went to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania." "That's very interesting," says the teacher. "Please spell 'Punxsutawney' for the class." Timmy thinks for a moment, then says, "Actually, we went to Ohio."

Poem of the Week. This week's poem is "Eleventh Floor Lies," Justice Warren Wolfson.
