Law School Academic Calendar

The Law School Calendar differs in a number of ways from the University Calendar. Make up classes may be held at the professor's discretion to replace sessions missed due to holidays, examinations, or for other reasons.

CALENDARS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.

† All grades are ordinarily posted to student transcripts within two weeks of the Grading Deadline.

* On Tuesday, following Fall Recess, classes will meet according to the Monday Fall Term schedule.

** On the first Wednesday of the Winter term, classes will meet according to the Monday Winter Term schedule.
