  • Temporary Revision to Distance Learning Policy May 2020: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lewis & Clark Law School students were required to take 4 weeks of spring 2020 classes online, many summer 2020 classes have been moved online, and at least some fall 2020 and spring 2021 classes will be partly or completely online. These circumstances require a temporary suspension of paragraph 6.2 of the Lewis & Clark Distance Learning Policy (Nov. 2018 revision), which provides that “Lewis & Clark JDstudents may take no more than 12 credits via Distance Learning towards the JD degree at Lewis & Clark, and only after successfully completing all required first year law courses.” Spring 2020 classes that were moved online will not count towards the 12-credit limit on distance learning classes. Lewis & Clark Law School classes offered fully or partly online during summer 2020, fall 2020, and spring 2021 also will not count towards the 12-credit limit. Paragraph 6.3 of the Distance Learning Policy, which governs the circumstances under which Lewis & Clark students can take distance learning classes offered at other law schools, remains in effect.
  • Exams are held for two weeks at the end of fall semester. The fall exam period begins Monday, December 7 and ends Friday, December 18 (including Saturday December 12). The reading period will be held Thursday, December 3 - Sunday December 6. 

    All Fall 2020 Final Exams will be paperless with the exam questions embedded in Examplify. You may take exams either on campus or remotely, and passwords for exams will be emailed to students in advance. Scheduled exams must be taken at their scheduled time. Starting a scheduled exam before the listed start time will be considered an honor code violation.

    Exam information is based on what we know as of October 13, 2020 and is subject to change.
