The Law School’s administrative regulations are contained in the Law School Student Handbook, which is on the website. The Law School conforms in most instances to the calendar established for the entire University. There are some differences, however, because the Law School operates on a longer semester system than the rest of the University. The Law School academic calendar may also be found on the Law School website.
