NEWS FROM STUDENT AFFAIRS OFFICE

CALL FOR PEER ADVISORS

LOCKERS, LOCKERS, LOCKERS

Everyone, i.e. everyone, must vacate, i.e. clean out your lockers by Tuesday, May 8. All lockers will be removed from the building, starting on May 9. Anything remaining in the lockers will be thrown out. New lockers will be installed during the summer. Rising 2- and 3Ls will be assigned new lockers. Thank you.

PETERS SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE

Applications are now available in room 024 for the Glenn D. Peters Law School Scholarship Fund. Applicants must be permanent residents of the Northern District of Indiana for the United States District Court--this basically means north of Indianapolis. While financial need can be a factor, greater weight is assigned to academic achievement and involvement in quality extracurricular activities. Application deadline is June 1, 2001.

HONOR, GLORY, MONEY!!

Dust off that seminar paper or that law journal note or perhaps even a moot court brief! There likely is some writing contest in the country that awaits your submission. Take a look at the bulletin board across the hallway from room 024 for descriptions of many of these contests. There is also a Web site dedicated to collecting all of these, at: http://www.people.memphis.edu/~law/. Many of our former law students have won prizes, one for $4,000!!! A little extra work on your part could be profitable.

NEWS FROM THE RECORDER'S OFFICE

ACCESSING YOUR SPRING GRADES

All grades are accessed only on INSITE. When a course's grades are ready, a note is posted on the grade board. The grades for that course then will be available for viewing on INSITE along with the grade distribution. Please note, however, that the grade distribution on INSITE may be incorrect, because the Law School does not include non-JD students in official course grade distributions. Students must know their PIN number to use INSITE. If you do not know your PIN number, you should contact the Registrar's Office, Franklin Hall, Room 100. The address for INSITE is http://insite.indiana.edu. Grades from the faculty for the spring semester are due on Wednesday, June 6. The grade board will also indicate if a faculty member has been granted an extension for cause in submitting grades. Also, all students will be e-mailed on June 7, the status of grades that may be late.

SUMMER REGISTRATION/SCHEDULE ADJUSTMENTS

Students who wish to register or adjust their schedules for the summer session need to contact our office. Adjustments should be made prior to the first day of class. Total withdrawals must be processed before or on the first day of class for a 100% refund. Please note that the registrations and drop/adds need to be processed in our office first, because we need to date the transaction and write an accompanying memo to request a 100% refund.
