Fall 2010 Final Exam Information:

Chicago-Kent College of Law provides limited accommodation for non-US law students who are studying in English for the first time, whether they are studying as LL.M. students or as Exchange students. The accommodation consists of the following measures:

a)   Extra time on exams, but only if the student did not take their first law degree in English. LL.M. and Exchange students will have their exams rescheduled for 8:30 am each morning unless you hold a law degree that was taught in English, in which case you will take your exams with the J.D. students.

    1. b)         LLM students are permitted the use of a paper English/other language dictionary in all exams, including closed book exams. Laptop or other electronic dictionaries as well as legal dictionaries (e.g. Black’s law dictionary) are forbidden under all circumstances.
    2. c)          Students who wish to take their exams on a laptop can do so and still qualify for extra time.  However, students who wish to use a Chicago-Kent computer in a computer lab for their exam will not qualify for extra time.

Please log-in to Web for Students (icon is located in the bottom of your Webmail) to view your updated exam schedule.

We will assume that you intend to take your exams on your own laptop. If you prefer to handwrite your exams, you may change the method by logging into your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the Exam Method Registration form. The form will be available beginning Wednesday, November 3; the deadline for submitting an exam method request is Friday, November 12, at 5:00 pm.

If you prefer to take one or more exams on a lab computer, you will need to notify Hilary Waldron no later than Friday, November 12, at 5:00 pm. Please be specific in your email to Hilary and tell her exactly what you prefer and give her the exam title and scheduled time.   Please remember that if you choose to take an exam on a lab computer, you will NOT receive any extra time.
