4.5 Overview of Exams

Law School exams are administered by the Office of the Registrar using test-taking software.  All students are responsible for being familiar with the Law School’s exam policies. The most up-to-date information on the Law School’s exam policies is available at http://www.law.uchicago.edu/students/academics/examprocedures. Students should review the Law School’s exam policies website before every exam period to ensure that they are complying with all Law School policies.  Failure to adhere to exam policies may lead to disciplinary action.

In general, two main types of examinations are administered at the Law School: in-class and take-home.  Although faculty members decide which type of exam to require for their class, exam administration is executed by the Office of the Registrar.
