The assistant dean for Student Affairs and the Registrar approve special arrangements, if appropriate, provided the request is received by the deadline each semester. To maintain anonymity, do not contact professors to request re–scheduling or accommodations.
Effective Fall 2015, an exam conflict will be defined as two or more examinations in one calendar day. A student with an exam conflict may request an accommodation by completing the Request for Examination Accommodation Form and submitting it by the deadline (March 31 for spring semester, October 31 for fall semester). If granted, such accommodation will result in one of the conflicting exams being rescheduled for a later date in the exam period at the discretion of the Registrar’s Office.
Note: An evening exam followed by a morning exam is no longer considered an exam conflict. For exam security reasons, an accommodated exam will never be scheduled before the original exam date and time.
If you need special examination arrangements because of a permanent medical condition, you must complete a Request for Examination Accommodation Form. A paper version of this form is available in the Office of the Law School Registrar. You must also obtain the necessary certification from the director of Disability Services in Serra Hall, Room 300 and submit it to the assistant dean for Student Affairs. This form must be submitted early enough to make arrangements for special accommodations, if appropriate. If special arrangements are approved for you on a continuing basis for the same reason, you still must complete a Request for Examination Accommodation Form and submit it by the deadline for each subsequent exam period.
If you are a student in the LLM in Comparative Law degree program and if you have been deemed eligible for language accommodation by Graduate and International Programs, complete a Request for Examination Accommodation Form and submit it by the specified deadline.
If you need special examination arrangements because of special circumstances such as a temporary medical condition, illness or unforeseen circumstances, you must complete a Request for Examination Accommodation Form and submit it by the deadline.
