Fall 2011 GPAs and Class Ranks. Cumulative GPAs through the Fall 2011 semester, and class ranks for upper-level J.D. students, are now available through Web for Students (go into your Webmail account, click on Web for Students, then click on the "Fall 2011" link under "Grades and Rank" on the left hand menu). Please note: Class ranks are calculated only for students who have been at Chicago-Kent for at least two semesters. First-year students, and students who transferred into Chicago-Kent at the start of the Fall 2011 semester, will receive their first class ranks at the end of the Spring 2012 semester. LL.M. students do not receive class ranks.
Bar Preparation Class. Through the generosity of Prof. Conviser and BARBRI, we are offering a no-credit, free class this Spring that will provide an early opportunity to begin preparing for the bar exam. The class will meet six times during the semester on Thursdays 4:00-5:50 pm, beginning on Thursday, February 16, in Rm. 210. The class is geared toward general bar preparation (not just Illinois), and it is open to both J.D. and LL.M. students graduating in May who plan to take a bar exam this summer or next winter. The class will be taught by Stephanie Goetz of BARBRI. If you are interested in signing up for the class, please email Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, include the state bar exam you are planning to sit for and what your concerns are regarding studying for the bar exam.
Pass/Fail Elections. Pass/fail elections for the Spring must be made no later than Friday, February 10. This deadline is firm.
