Email #16: July 22, 2022
Hello, Class of 2025 … not much longer now until you’re all sitting in the Chester Fritz Auditorium for Convocation – hope you’re getting as excited as we are!
Here are this week’s items:
- Lawyering Skills I - I will send out a separate email with the course registration information for the Lawyering Skills sections later today. Each email will have the course number for the section into which you should enroll; book information for each section can be found on the School of Law website. Please register for your LS I class as soon as possible. If you run into any errors, please let us know (in most situations, we’re able to resolve the issue fairly quickly on our end). I will be out of the office until August 3, so please contact Laureen at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be able to help you with any issues!
- Information Survey – Please complete this brief survey for the Office of Student Life. It’s helpful for us to have this information before we see you at Orientation. If you have any questions about the survey, feel free to reach out to me directly.
- First-year photo – The School of Law creates a photobook of our incoming class to help faculty and staff connect names with faces. We are asking for you to submit a photo to Beth Moe (email@example.com) as soon as possible, but no later than August 1, 2022 to allow for the book to be created. Here are directions for submitting your photo - https://law.und.edu/future-students/weekly-email/photo.html
- Orientation – the most recent draft of the Orientation schedule is attached. There might be some additions/revisions, and any such changes will be communicated
to you as soon as possible. A couple of notes:
- The “Orientation Check-In (drop-in)” session on Monday morning is the time for you to check in at the Office of Student Life to get your Orientation materials … you do not need to be there at 8:30am on the dot, and you don’t need to stay for the entire time. During that time, you can also check out a locker, walk around the building to familiarize yourself with the layout, and generally hang out to meet your classmates.
- There are two optional panel discussions tentatively scheduled for that week (a Canadian/International student panel on Monday afternoon, and a panel for spouses/significant others of law students on Wednesday). We are still in the process of coordinating those panels, and we’ll know by that week whether we’ll be able to go through with those plans.
- Reminders –
- If you plan on establishing ND residency, please consider scheduling an appointment to get your driver’s license. Here is the website you can use to make that appointment (look under “Quick Links”).
- Please remember to order your U Card prior to your arrival (if you went to UND for your undergrad, you do not need a new U Card) – and remember, you can have it sent to the Law School for your convenience!
Take care, and we’ll see you next month!
