Law as an academic subject places somewhat different demands on a student than would be encountered in many other university courses. It requires that the student be able to communicate clearly and effectively even when dealing with fact situations in which there is not always a clear right or wrong answer. Grading You will be graded in this course by means of your performance on two closed book examinations. Your ability to understand factual situations, solve problems and express reasoning in concise written arguments will be of primary importance in grading. The first examination will be given on Thursday, October 16 th , 2003 and will be worth 40% of the final grade. The final examination will be given on Tuesday, December 9 th , 2003 at 9:00 a.m., and will be worth 60%. You are expected to write the examinations at the assigned times and no request for alternative arrangements will be entertained. It is my desire to be readily accessible to students. If you are having difficulty with any part of the course, please come and see me. My office is located at 3-21E Business Building....
