Associate Dean Sowle’s Announcements, January 8 - January 12, 2024

Academic Calendar Reminder. Spring classes start this coming Tuesday, January 16. There are no classes on Monday, January 15 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. --SDS.

Spring 2024 Semester. The Spring 2024 Quick Guide page now has initial class assignments for Spring classes and a revised Spring schedule that includes classroom assignments.

Additional information will be posted later this week about pass/fail registration, applications for graduation (for those graduating at the end of the Spring semester), and other information.

Fall 2023 Grades and Class Ranks. We will be uploading Fall grades to the central server early this week; we will then produce class ranks. I will email the student body once you can order official transcripts reflecting Fall grades;; and once class rank information is available. Please note: Students do not receive class ranks until they have been here for at least two semesters. For students entering in 2022 or after, class ranks will be assigned only to the top half of the class. (See the Student Handbook, section 6.13, for more information.)

Counseling Services. This is a reminder that the university provides counseling services free of charge for students. Click here for details on the available resources, including individual counseling through Skylight Counseling Services. In addition to resources available through the university, the Lawyers Assistance Program also provides assistance to law students. LAP provides free and confidential assistance to members of the Illinois legal community, and can help you with issues of addiction, stress, anxiety, depression, focusing, worries about the character and fitness process, and having a successful first-year transition. Click here for more information about LAP and the services it provides.
