Exam Review Process

Exam Review is held at least once each semester.  Students may request to review their exams and final papers during a scheduled exam review period each semester.  If your professor returns your exam or final paper to the Office of the Registrar, that exam or final paper will be available for pick-up during the exam review period.  If your professor did not return your exam or final paper to the Office of the Registrar, you must contact your professor directly to retrieve or review your exam or final paper.

REMINDER: Due to accommodations made for COVID-19, past returned exams will only be available electronically for Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021. Past Returned Exams with comments for previous semesters are not currently available due to remote operations. We will make past semesters available as soon as we are able.

Also, there were no Best Exams Selected for Spring 2020 due to the grading changes that were made to accommodate COVID-19 remote learning. There will be Feedback Memos available for Spring 2020 no Best Exams. Best exams will continue to be available for previous semesters for faculty who have submitted Best Exams.

Past exam questions are available in electronic format on the Law Library website.  If a past exam is not available at the Williams Law Library website, please contact the Office of the Registrar.  Some professors also make model answers or feedback memorandums available to their students.  The model answers or feedback are available on the Williams Law Library website

If your professor designated an exam as “best exam” and authorized its availability to students, the designated exam will be made available in The Georgetown Law Library’s Online Exam Archive.
