Happy Holidays! I wish all of you a joyous (and restful) holiday season, and I look forward to seeing you next month.

Spring 2011 Initial Reading Assignments and Course Materials. A list of initial reading assignments for Spring 2011 courses is posted on the Spring 2011 Term Page (also available through the main Student Portal Page). Print copies are available on the table outside the third floor cafeteria.

Not all professors submit initial assignments, so do not be concerned if there is no listing for one or more of your Spring courses. Even if a course is not listed, materials for the course should be available in the Bookstore. The list of initial assignments may be updated periodically if we receive additional assignments.

You may ask the Bookstore to hold your Spring course books for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you over the holiday break. If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, stop by the bookstore before you leave, or call the bookstore at 312/906-5605. In addition, you may order your course materials over the web by clicking on the Bookstore link on the Student Portal Page.

Spring 2011 Registration. The initial registration period is now over. If you have not already done so, please log back into the online registration system (available through the Spring 2011 Term Page) to see what classes you were admitted into. You may make adjustments to your schedule through the end of the second week of the Spring semester.

Please note the following changes, corrections, and cancellations. A revised schedule (available through the Spring 2011 Term Page and outside the third floor cafeteria) has been issued incorporating these revisions.

Class cancellations: The following Spring classes/sections have been canceled due to inadequate enrollment.

Agency Law (277-51)
Civil RICO & High-Profile Lawyering (279-51)
International Trade (evening section) (384-51)
Reproductive Technology (643-81)

Addition to the schedule:

Litigation Technology: A second section of this class has been added to the Spring schedule, meeting Fri. 8:30-12:00 noon.


Antitrust: This class was incorrectly listed as ending at 7:50pm on Mon/Wed. The actual ending time is 7:25pm.
Justice & Technology Practicum: This class will meet Tues. 1:55-2:45pm (not Mon. 4:00-5:50pm).
Law & Human Behavior: There will be no final exam in this class.
Public Interest Law & Policy: There will be a take-home exam in this class.

Graduating Students: Reduced Loads and Tuition Discounts. Graduating seniors needing fewer than the minimum number of hours to graduate may take fewer credits without special permission. In addition, if you will be graduating at the end of the Spring 2011, and will be taking more than the 87 credits required to graduate, you may receive a 50% discount on each credit you take over the required 87 credits. If this affects you, please contct me by email no later than Friday, February 4, and I will arrange for the credit to be applied to your account.

Joke of the Week. Question: What did the gingerbread man put on his bed? Answer: A cookie sheet! (Thanks to Anita Laurencell for this week's joke.)
