Taking the Final Exam – BYU J. Reuben Clark Law School

Taking the Final Exam

Room assignments for final exams shall be posted prior to the exam period.  Exams begin promptly; students should not be late.  Students who are late will not be given extra time. Bluebooks will be provided by the Law School for each exam.  Students should supply their own writing instruments.  If the exam is closed-book, a student should not bring anything to the exam room except writing instruments.

Students who register to use their laptop will go to the room designated on the final exam schedule as “Examplify” room.  Students who register to write in a Bluebook will go to the room designated “Writing” room.  Students who, after registration, change their mind about whether they will use their laptop must still go to the room for which they are registered.

At the end of the exam, the proctor will announce a 5-minute warning, a 1-minute warning, and then will stop the exam.  Any student who continues to write or type after that time shall have his or her name reported to the professor and his or her test withheld.

If a student finishes the exam early, he or she should turn in the exam and materials to the Fishbowl.  Once a student is finished and leaves the exam room, he or she cannot return.  A student must never ask another student to turn in his or her exam; each student is responsible for his or her own exam.
