Proctored Exam Info

Proctored exams are administered in-person at the Law School and promptly begin on the scheduled date at 10:00 a.m(Central Time), unless otherwise indicated on the Exam Schedule. We suggest planning to arrive to your exam room at least 15 minutes before your exam begins.

Take-Home Exam Info

Take-home exams are administered remotely. You will access the questions via the Exam4 website, and you will prepare and submit your response using the Exam4 software.

It is important to plan your take-home exam start time accordingly so that you have your full time. For example, if you have an 8-hour specific-date take-home exam, and you start it at 6 p.m., it will still be due at 11:59 p.m., even though you have not used the full 8 hours. The same is true for anytime take-home exams - the final deadline to submit is 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the exam period, so be sure to start early enough to get your full time. 

To the extent possible, we strongly encourage you to take your take-home exams during normal business hours, as Law School staff and the Law School Help Desk may not be available after hours. 

All times are listed in Central Time.
