Section Assignment and Class Schedules
In late July, our Registrar will be dividing our incoming 1L class into two sections (Section A and Section B) and registering all 1L students for their appropriate classes. At that time, we will send you an email, providing you with your 1L Section Assignment. In addition, once you have been registered for classes, your class schedule will be available for you to view in NEST.
A list of books will be posted here in June. Both 1L Sections (A and B) use the same textbooks. You have the option to order your textbooks online with the Creighton University Bookstore. Pre-ordered textbooks may be picked up at the bookstore, located in the Harper Center.
Assignments for your first day of class will begin being posted approximately one week before classes begin on our Assignments webpage.
A copy of the 2013-2014 Academic Calendar will be available under the Academics section of our website. Please consult the calendar for information regarding important dates, holidays, and final exams.
Working During the Semester/Employment Policy
We encourage all first-year students to give full attention to their education and not to be employed during the fall or spring semesters. Second-year and third-year students are encouraged to supplement their formal education with clerkships and internships. However, under the Law School's policies and the American Bar Association standards a student may not be employed more than 20 hours per week in any week in which the student is enrolled in more than twelve class hours. During Orientation, all 1Ls will be asked to sign a copy of the Employment Policy.
Request for Accommodations
It is the policy of Creighton University to ensure that no qualified person shall, solely by reason of disability, be denied access to, participation in, or the benefits of, any program or activity operated by Creighton University. Given appropriate notice, each qualified person shall receive the reasonable accommodations needed to ensure equal access to education opportunities, programs, and activities in the most integrated setting appropriate.
Law students with disabilities who require accommodations must submit a written request to Dean Dallon (see contact information below), which sets forth the nature of the disability and requested accommodations. Students are responsible to make their needs known in a timely fashion and to provide appropriate documentation in support of this request.
Students who do not require accommodations need not make their disabilities known. Information concerning a student's disability and accommodations is treated as confidential under applicable federal, state, and university laws and policies.
Accepted students who believe they will need special accommodations should contact Dean Dallon at their earliest convenience in order to ensure that adequate time is available to evaluate documentation and work out appropriate accommodations. The University may not be able to accommodate last minute requests.
