- General Requirements.
- You must satisfactorily complete all written assignments.
You will not receive credit for this course with any assignments
outstanding. You are urged to turn in late assignments as soon as
possible, but for final grading purposes no past-due
assignment will be accepted after the first day of the Spring final exam
period unless extraordinary circumstances are demonstrated in writing
after meeting with Professor Cagle or Professor Viney.
- You must turn in assignments on time. Unless
instructed otherwise, turn in all assignments on the due date before 10:00
(a) placing them in the door bins at the Lawyering Skills Office; (b)
faxing them to 608-263-6365; or (c) sending them to the Lawyering Skills
Office printer (see Instructions for Sending to LSC Printer). You will
not be able to send certain assignments to the printer because of the
assignment format. Please plan ahead. Assignments received after the
required time (generally 10:00 A.M.) are late assignments. See
paragraph 2, below regarding Consequences.
- You must identify yourself. Place your name and
assigned number in the upper right corner of the front page of each assignment.
- Consequences for Late Assignments. You will not pass this course if you accumulate more than four (4) late assignments unless you make special arrangements, in advance, with Professor Viney. Unforeseen
and uncontrollable circumstances can result in missed deadlines, but a pattern
of missed deadlines is professional misconduct. See SCR 20:1.3
Allowance for four (4) late assignments provides a generous margin for misfortune.
Cultivate the professional disciplines of timeliness and meticulous adherence
- Assignments after missing class. If you miss class,
you are still responsible for turning in your written assignment arising from that class. You
must arrange to complete the assignment either before it is due (which may
not be possible) or as soon as you return to class. To obtain the information
necessary to complete the assignment, talk to your visiting instructor (if
still visiting) or obtain class notes from a colleague. If you turn
in an assignment associated with an excused absence within
one week of the original due date, you are not assessed a late assignment.
In all other cases, the assignment is a late assignment.
- Redoing an assignment. Infrequently, a student's
work on an assignment is deemed sufficiently unsatisfactory that the student
must redo and resubmit the assignment in order to receive credit for it.
See Guidelines for Written Assignments. If you redo and resubmit that
assignment within one week of the original due date, you are not assessed
for a late assignment.
