PRELIMINARY FALL 2001 SCHEDULE OF CLASSES
April 23, 2001

The preliminary schedule of classes for the Fall 2001 semester appears below. Some additions and corrections will be made before the schedule is finalized. The Registration Bulletin will be distributed on Thursday. It will contain the final schedule, registration instructions, academic information and regulations, descriptions of new courses, biographies of new members of the full-time faculty, and biographies of adjunct and visiting faculty members teaching in the Fall 2001 semester. Most course descriptions, and biographies of most full-time faculty members, appear in the publication entitled Faculty Biographies/Course Descriptions: 2000-2002. Copies of this publication are available in the Admissions office, the Registrar’s office, and in Dean Sowle’s office.  If you have any questions or comments about the preliminary schedule, please feel free to contact me by e-mail (ssowle), phone (6-5130), or by stopping by my office (Rm. 320).

We will again be conducting Fall registration online rather than through submission of paper forms. Instructions for registering online will be included in the Registration Bulletin; please read the instructions carefully.  Registration will take place on Monday, April 30 and Tuesday, May 1. You may register at any time on those days. 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 with your registration priority group.

INTENSIVE TRIAL ADVOCACY 1 (3 credits)
Prerequisite: Evidence. Pass/fail not available. You must take Trial Advocacy 2 in the semester immediately following the Intensive course. Both sessions are considered Fall courses for purposes of tuition and computing Fall grade point averages. However, the credits will not count as part of your Fall course load for purposes of credit hour limitations. (If taking Intensive Trial Advocacy will put you over the maximum credit limit for your division, please contact the Registrar's office (regq@kentlaw.edu) prior to registering so that your maximum hour limit can be adjusted in the system.) Classes will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day, including the intervening Sunday. If you enroll in the course and later decide not to take it, you must drop it by Friday, May 25 (Session 1) or Friday, September 7 (Session 2), or you will be charged full tuition for the course unless another student takes your seat. Note to Evening Division students: If Intensive Trial Advocacy brings your total credit hours for the Fall semester to at least 12, you will automatically be billed for student health insurance unless you waive coverage; instructions for waiving coverage appear in the Registration Bulletin.

Session 1: Saturday, August 11 - Saturday, August 18, 2001 541-071
Session 2: Saturday, January 5 - Saturday, January 12, 2002 541-072
