New in fall 2021, students will have access to a final exam system called the Graduate Planning and Audit System (GPAS). Students can view their GPAS report at any point in their legal career by going to MyU: Academics, selecting the Degree Progress tab, and finally clicking on the GPAS link. Classes that meet on Saturday or Sunday have their final exam at the normal start time, on Saturday of the last week. The exam lasts two hours from the beginning.

Finally, the Director of Academic Success and the Bar, Professor Kim Ronning, is available as an additional resource to help students succeed. Look for it in Law in Practice, SSG, Legal Writing and Academic Achievement and Bar workshops throughout the year. Contact Professor Ronning at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule one-on-one interviews for exam preparation and review, grades, plans, time management, bar study and planning, and anything related to academic and bar success. In the following table, you will find the time and days scheduled for your conference, seminar or colloquium. The time of the final exam for this course is indicated in the next column.

This information can also be found in the instructions for each exam. If you have general questions about the legal review, contact email@example.com before the scheduled exam time to make sure staff are available for you. All sections of subsequent courses will be reviewed together at the specified time. We offer four moot court courses (civil rights/civil liberties, environment, IP and national moot court courts) as well as a number of moot court teams. Registration for all moot court courses takes place during the open registration period of the Faculty of Law in the fall, with the exception of the national course, which is reserved for application purposes. All competition teams are application teams only. Check word count – Word count may vary depending on the program. The Examplify word count is used by teachers for exams with word count limits.
Students interested in more than one non-legal course are advised that the sum of non-legal credits must NOT exceed 6 credits, even if courses are approved through the non-legal course approval form. For example, students can take one 4-credit course and one 2-credit course, or two 3-credit courses, but not one 3-credit course and one 4-credit course. NOTE: Any student experiencing a critical illness or other emergency in the vicinity of a scheduled exam may request an emergency waiver in the run-up to an exam by contacting Student Services firstname.lastname@example.org. The time of your final exam will be set according to the university`s exam schedule. Always confirm your final exam with your teacher. Each 1L Section will work with a team of experienced 2L and 3L who will guide Section students through activities designed to help 1L students adapt and thrive in law school. Using different teaching techniques for a range of learning styles, SSG or IS student instructors run weekly sessions where 1L students complete exercises to deepen what they have learned in class, such as applying substantive law to new facts, identifying and exploring vocabulary related to courses, or mapping key cases and concepts using flowcharts or diagrams. Students also learn skills that apply to all their courses, including effective learning techniques, plans, time management, and exam preparation and writing. Larger institutions also hold regular office hours to support students individually or in small groups. Personal technical support during the exam is provided by legal technology staff on site in Mondale. At the beginning of your exam, the examiner will announce the specific times and locations to find this help.
For the final exams, we are in room 65. For midterm exams, this varies. *This schedule may be updated during the fall semester If your instructor has requested a deviation from the official final exam schedule, they must (1) give a special retake exam to all students who have exam conflicts, or (2) take three (or more) exams in one calendar day. The examination plan may change until the beginning of the examination period. If your course starts between 16:00 and 17:59, your final two-hour exam will be scheduled at the standard course time during the last week. If a class meets for several days during the semester, the exam is scheduled on the first day of the class assembly, which takes place in the last week. Add notes – The grades feature is typically used by professors to provide space for exam candidates to enter explanations/justifications on multiple-choice or true/false questions. The guidelines for all online final exams are as follows: Welcome to Exam Central – your one-stop shop for all exam-related resources. When grades are enabled for your exam, they are automatically sent to the faculty that organizes the exam.

Taking one or more mock exams gives you the opportunity to work with ExamSoft/Examplify in a stress-free environment and practice skills that should make your exams more fluid. There is no limit to the number of times you can take the mock exams. Remote technical support for exams: ExamSoft support team at 866-429-8889 for the United States and Canada. RISE, or Race-Informed Study Experience, is the brainchild of Shantal Pai `21, a former SSG instructor and University of Minnesota law graduate, and was launched as part of the SSG program in spring 2021 to support our BIPOC students who face different intellectual and personal challenges than other students. If you miss a final, an I, F or N will be recorded, depending on your position at that time. To take the exam, you must get permission from the instructor.
The Faculty of Law and the broader university offer many resources to help students understand their learning style, prepare for and make the most of teaching, and ultimately achieve their individual potential in law school exams. RISE is designed to be an academic community of success for students who feel that their identity or life experiences do not fit the assumptions of a traditional legal education. The RISE program is open to all students, but is primarily based on the experience of our BIPOC students. Each student is responsible for planning enrollment to ensure that graduation requirements are met prior to the scheduled completion date. Students should also regularly review their academic progress and enrollment details via MyU. Also note that, in accordance with Academic Rule 12.3, non-legal courses are NOT included in the calculation of a student`s official cumulative grade point average (GPA), even if these courses are approved for JD credits under Rule 3.3. Grades earned in non-legal courses at the University of Minnesota appear in the student`s record, but grade points are not included in the law school`s cumulative GPA. For a summary of Young Women completion requirements, see Curriculum and Requirements. NOTE: If these instructions differ from what your teacher noted in class, please contact the email@example.com Registrar immediately.
