Grading – Exams and Papers
Courses in the 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 LL.M. 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. LL.M. students must maintain a 2.0 GPA to graduate and typically LL.M. students do not receive a class ranking.
Exam types can vary as some professors give written essay-type exams, others may give objective-question exams, and others a combination of the two. In some courses, professors require a written paper.
