Fall 2007 Registration. The final Fall 2007 schedule,
the Registration Bulletin, and the course and exam grids
are available by clicking
here or by going to the main Student
Portal page (click on the Fall '07 link). Print
copies are available on the table outside the third
floor cafeteria. Registration will take place from Friday,
April 27 through Tuesday, May 1. You may register at
any time during that period.
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 Thursday, 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 Thursday,
May 3 to learn what classes you have been admitted into.
Spring 2008 Preliminary Schedule. The preliminary
schedule of classes for the Spring 2008 semester is
available by clicking
here or by going to the main Student
Portal page (click on the Spring '08 link). Print
copies are available outside the third floor cafeteria.
Please note: This schedule is only preliminary
– there will be additions to the class list and other
changes made before the schedule is finalized. The final
schedule will be issued during the Fall 2007 semester,
when registration for Spring 2008 classes will also
take place. If you have any questions or comments about
the preliminary schedule, please feel free to contact
me by e-mail (SSOWLE), phone (6-5282), or by stopping
by my office (Rm. 320).
Intensive Trial Advocacy. Please note that registration
for both the August 2007 and the January 2008 sessions
of Intensive Trial Advocacy take place as part of Fall
2007 registration. See the listing for Intensive Trial
Advocacy in the preliminary Schedule of Classes for
Spring 2007 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 Mindi Mysliwiec (312/906-5005) 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 after 1992 are available online by
going to http://library.kentlaw.edu/Services/students.htm,
clicking on the Exam Database link (under Resources).
Exams dating from 1992 and before are bound in volumes
available in the 10th floor reading room in the Library.
Dean for a Day Karaoke Event. Dean for a Day
student Jessie Augustyn has arranged for food and karaoke
to be available on Thursday, May 3, 4:00–6:00pm in the
second floor cafeteria. It should be a great time!
