Grading – Exams and Papers
Courses in our law school, as in most schools in the United States, are generally graded by an exam or written paper. There is no general comprehensive examination at the end of the LLM program. The final examination or paper for each course is usually the only graded exercise for the semester, and the grade received in the course is based on this examination or paper. LLM students must maintain a 2.0 GPA to graduate. LLM students do not receive a class ranking.
Some professors give written essay-type exams, other professors give objective-question exams, and others a combination of the two. In other courses, professors require a written paper. You may want to review these samples given in our law school:
