Spring 2009 Elective Selection


This is a message for all first-year law students concerning elective selection & scheduling for Spring 2009.

As you know, in the Spring 2009 Semester, you will be randomly assigned to sections of: Property (4 credits); Introduction to Criminal Procedure (3 credits); Constitutional Law I (3 credits) and Legal Research & Writing II (2 credits).  You will also choose an elective course.

As of today, Thursday, November 13th, the Spring Semester 2009 Elective Selection Form and pertinent information is available on-line at the following web-page:

(I had announced previously that the form would be put in your hang-file, but this is a more expedient delivery method.)

Please read the information contained on the web-page, print-out and complete the Elective Selection Form, and return the form to Room 5106 by no later than 4:30 p.m., Friday, November 21st. (That is, next Friday.) 

Do not neglect to complete and return this important form by the November 21st deadline.  Once all schedules have been assigned, the Law School will inform all first-years when and how to register for your Spring 2009 courses.

Finally, please recall that, as stated in my e-mail of last week: (1) IF you will have (a) special scheduling needs based on extraordinary/compelling circumstances or (b) will be a part-time student in Spring 2009, you must submit a letter detailing your need, along with any relevant supporting documentation (such as a letter from your employer) by Friday, November 14th (that is, tomorrow).  Your request should be submitted to me, Assistant Dean Kevin Kelly, either by placing it in my 5th Floor mailbox, or mailing it to me at: University of Wisconsin Law School, 975 Bascom Mall, Madison, WI 53706. No phone calls or emails in this regard will entertained.  (Note: if you are a part-time student who will not be taking an elective, you can note this fact on the elective selection form you submit).

Thank you for your attention.
