The Office of the Registrar administers examinations for Georgetown Law students.  On this page, you will find important information including exam dates, policies, instructions, and tech support.

All exams are administered through the Exam4 software application and graded on an anonymous basis.  Students are subject to the Student Disciplinary Code and, as such, self-identification of any kind within the exam is not permitted; nor may they discuss the substance of the exam with faculty or with any other student from the time the exam is first administered until after grades are published.

Please review in full the Fall 2023 Law Center Rules on Final Examinations/Papers and Preventing Violations of Exam Policies and the Student Disciplinary Code.
