Vorenberg Discusses

By John Morris
Dean Vorenberg has had two.
and-a-half months to settle into
his new office. The ReconD in-
terviewed him on Monday to see
what lies in store for the Law
School. What follows below in-
cludes most of that conversation.
We began by asking what his
immediate goals were for the
Vorenberg: I don't think I
can answer in any comprehen-
sive way for a couple of reasons.
First, I am relying heavily on
the Michelman Committee [on
Educational Planning and De-
velopment] to complete its charge
and come in with a set of rec-
ommendations to deal with the

areas it has covered.... Having
said that, there are certain is-
sues and problems that are very
clear to me that ought to be
[given a) high priority and I
think they [the committee] are
clearly going to do that. ,
I think there is a sense shared
by students and faculty that the
second and third year need at-
tention, and that is one of the
focal points of the Michelman
Committee. That committee has
already dealt with it in two re-
spects: one, the report on so-called
sequential studies ..., and the
research institute which was ac-
tually adopted by the faculty
last year. Both of those are a
move in the right direction.'

A LongDay
By Mary Tarduno
Students returning to HLS on
Tuesday, Sept. 8 were confronted
by long lines, confusion, and frus.
tration. In addition to starting class
that day, 2Ls and 3Ls also at-
tempted to register for coursesand
adjust course schedules. For many
students, the registration process
alone took hours.
According to-Dean of' Students
Mary Upton, the entire process of
planning registration was compli-
cated by the departure of Registrir
Susie Castillo-Robson at the begin-
ning of the summer. (See box, p.
15.) There were three different reg-
istrars in the three months of June,
July and August, and, in such a
situation, there are bound to be
dropped stitches, Upton said. Up-
ton, who acted as registrar from
mid-Jihne until the beginning of
August, said that she would take
responsibility for the problems that
occurred during registration.
One such problem cited by many
students was the fact that regis-
tration was held on the first 'day
of classes. According to Upton,
however, registration has tradi.
tionally been held on that day; last
year was the only exception.
Upton asserted that the regis-
trar's office did examine the pos-
sibility of having registration be- -
fore the start of closses, but because
of this year's calendar, classes had
to begin no later than the day after
