Below are some guidelines you must follow when taking your law school exams. This list is not intended to be all inclusive, but it does highlight the most common areas of concern.
You may not leave the room during the exam except to use the restroom or in case of emergency. If you leave the room, you cannot remove anything from the room and you will not be compensated with extra time. If you leave the room during the exam, you must sign in and out with the proctor.
If you are typing a floating or take-home exam, please be sure to save your document every five minutes. This will ensure that any computer problems will cause only a minimal loss. Please allow sufficient time to print exams. Printing time, including printer problems, is included in the allotted exam time.
Additional rules regarding exams are found on page 32 of the Law School Catalog, 2010–2012, and the Honor Code is on page 29. Chapter 11 of the Institutional Rules in the General Information Bulletin also governs scholastic dishonesty.
