Fire Safety Reminder.
In the event of a fire, it is vital
that we clear the building as quickly as possible. You should assume that there
is a real fire whenever the fire alarms go off and should immediately take the
nearest enclosed stairwell to the first floor and exit the building -- do not
use the elevators, and do not take valuable time collecting up your possessions
or stopping by your locker. 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.
Failure to leave the building promptly, or failure to follow the directions of
Law School personnel, may subject you to a Code of Conduct charge.Dean's
Dean Krent will hold "meet-and-greets" with students
this Thursday, September 18, in the 5th Floor Student Lounge from 8:45-9:30 am
and 5:00-5:45 pm. Come and share your thoughts about the law school or to ask
questions. Refreshments will be available at both events.Faculty Advisor
Program for First-Year Students.
Orientation is over, Labor Day has passed
and the reality of life as a law student is no doubt finally sinking in. Life
as a first-year law student can be both exhilarating and exhausting. In an attempt
to help you negotiate the ups and downs of the first year of law school, many
of the full-time faculty have agreed to serve as advisors for first-year students.
A faculty advisor can help you with your approach to studying, thinking about
career options, course selection for your second year, and other law school matters
that may interest or concern you.
This is entirely a voluntary program
on the part of both faculty and students - many of you may already feel comfortable
with the nature and demands of law school and have no interest in a faculty advisor.
But if you are interested in having a faculty advisor, click
and fill out the online form (the deadline for signing up is Friday,
September 26). Each faculty is limited to only a handful of students, so if you
have a preference we can't guarantee you will get your first pick. If you end
up being assigned to a faculty member other than one you specified, someone will
be in touch with you to make sure the match is acceptable to you before it is
finalized.Joke of the Week.
