The Library maintains files of past years’ examinations for
students to use in their exam preparations. A secure archive of all past
years’ exams is available through the Law School’s portal. While this link to the exam
archive is available from the Library home page, only members of the law
school community who have network accounts can access the exams, which are
loaded on the site as secure Adobe Acrobat PDF files. Paper files of
exams for courses being offered in the immediate semester are kept in the
The Library will never make a past exam available without specific authorization from the faculty member who gave it. And, upon request of the faculty member, we will withdraw any exam at any time. Elina Oyola, our Circulation Librarian, works with Academic Affairs each semester to insure that our archival collection is complete. Faculty members are encouraged to check the list of their available examinations. The link to the exam file is available on the Library’s home page. Inquiries about which exams have been made available, currently or historically, should be addressed to Elina Oyola, at ext. 2838, email: email@example.com.
As students find the sample exams to be extremely helpful when they are preparing at the end of each semester, we urge you to make them available. When preparing current exams, please keep in mind that previous years’ examinations are available, or may have been available to students in the paper and electronic archives described above.
