Final exams: when we can and can't re-schedule them

   In some, very limited circumstances the Law School Rules allow us to re-schedule a final examination for a student. The applicable rule is section 6.03 at  Students must complete a petition to re-schedule an exam and bring it to me before November 6. The form is available at After Nov. 6, you should only submit petitions because of unforeseen or emergency circumstances.

It's important to read the rules before submitting a petition. The rules automatically grant a re-scheduling to students  who have two exams on one day or four exams on consecutive days or who have religious observances on the exam day. The rules state some circumstances in which we will not re-schedule exams and, for example, explain that the re-scheduled exams must be later--not earlier--than the regular exam date.

If your petition is approved, you will receive a date and time for the re-scheduled exam from Jane Ford Bennett (Room 5106).
