These page limits are maximums. Do not feel the need to write answers that are as long as the maximum length.
8. This examination is designed to be answered in 3 hours, with time devoted to each Section in rough proportion to the points available for that Section. Given that you can take the exam home over a lengthy period, you will probably spend longer than 3 hours on the exam. But do not spend much longer than that on the examination; your other exams and papers are important also, and you should allocate your study time as you would for any three-hour exam. In particular, this is NOT a research exercise. The exam is intended to enable you to display your knowledge and understanding of the material discussed in class or assigned as reading.
In writing the examination, you should fully attribute the use of another’s ideas or language.
Do not put your name anywhere on your answers, but once again please make sure that your correct anonymous Exam ID# is marked in bold font on top of the first page of your exam and on the top of every succeeding page.
IMPORTANT! – MAKE SURE TO RETAIN A COPY OF YOUR EXAM ANSWER PAGES ON YOUR COMPUTER HARD DRIVE OR ON SOME OTHER SECURE DEVICE – IT IS ALWAYS POSSIBLE THAT I MAY HAVE TO ASK YOU TO SEND A DIGITAL COPY OF YOUR EXAM ANSWER PAGES TO A COLLEGE OF LAW ADMINISTRATOR AFTER MAY 12 – I HOPE THAT WON’T BE NECESSARY, BUT JUST IN CASE PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE IN A POSITION TO DO SO!
Read carefully the instructions provided at the beginning of each Section and read carefully the precise questions that are asked.
