Note about Consortium arrangement: Chicago-Kent has a consortium arrangement with three other Chicago law schools under which students can take selected courses at the other schools. Under the consortium arrangement, students pay tuition to their home school, and grades transfer (not just the credits) and are counted in your GPA. The courses available for Summer 2021 are provided above. Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in taking a class through the consortium. Requests for available spaces will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note: Consortium courses may count toward a Chicago-Kent certificate program only with permission of Dean Sowle and the director of the relevant certificate program.
Notice to First-Year Students. Current first-year students are permitted to take Summer 2021 courses if they wish to do so. You may want to review the "Where Do We Go From Here?" document prior to Summer registration (although it will mainly be relevant to registration for Fall 2021, when that takes place).
Registration Instructions. Registration for Summer classes will take place from Friday, April 16, at 9:00 am through Tuesday, April 20, at 9:00 pm. You may register at any time during that period. To register beginning on April 16, go to the Summer 2021 Quick Guide page and click on the Online Registration link (the link will be posted prior to the start of registration). Please note: If you do not register during this initial registration period, you will still be able to register for any open class during the add/drop period, which will start on Friday, April 23; see below for details. After the end of the initial 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 within your registration priority group. Evening Division students have priority over Day Division students for Summer classroom courses. Within divisions, registration priority is based on anticipated graduation date, with the earliest graduation date having the highest priority. To learn what classes you have been admitted into, you must check the Online Registration site on or after Friday, April 23. Registering for a class during the initial registration period is no guarantee that you will be admitted to the class -- you must check the web site on or after Friday, April 23 to learn what classes you have been admitted to.
