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.


* On Tuesday, following Fall Recess, classes will meet according to the Monday Fall Term schedule (not applicable in Fall Term 2020).

** Study Day(s) - Classes will not meet.

Grades are posted on a rolling basis to transcripts. All grades are ordinarily released within one week after the professors' grading deadline.
