*TWEN – During your Foundations of Legal Studies (first) week of school, you will be given computer access codes that will permit you to register online at lawschool.westlaw.com for the TWEN pages for each of your courses. I post my syllabus, introductory materials, and all additional handouts on my TWEN page for Civil Procedure I, and you can download them as you need them throughout the semester. For the first day only, I will also put paper copies of these handouts on the table outside of the Faculty Support Center, so that they are readily accessible to you even before you are able to access TWEN.
