Q: What’s more important than filling out your NCAA bracket correctly?
A: Filling out your fall 2008 class schedule correctly!
Dean Sealing will hold not one, not two, but three sessions with all the important information you need to know to register for fall 2008 classes, including: vital pre-registration paperwork; how to meet graduation requirements; classes outside the law school; avoiding wait-list pitfalls and much more. There will also be time for Q&A. While not mandatory, attendance at one of these sessions is highly recommended. Please note: due to a variety of conflicting events, one day and two evening sessions have been scheduled. The content will be identical, so par-time and full-time students can attend either session. Feel free to brown-bag it.
- Tuesday, March 18: noon in room 080
- Tuesday, March 18: 5:00 p.m. in room 075
- Wednesday, March 19: 5:00 p.m. in room 175

More detailed registration information will be forthcoming soon. A draft Spring 2009 course schedule will be made available to students in advance of registration for Fall courses for planning purposes.
