The Summer Law Institute uses an anonymous grading system. During the program, each student gets a unique number which is used in lieu of the student's name on each exam. The Student Code of Conduct governs all aspects of this process.
Exams are administered by the Administrative Support Staff of the Summer Law Institute who give out exam numbers and blue books to students.
Examinations may not be taken early. No examination may be taken before the time and date specified on the examination schedule. The Director may permit a student to take the exam late for good cause, such as illness at the time of the exam. In such a case, the exam must be taken as soon as the student is well enough to take it, and no later than two weeks after the regularly scheduled time.
If a student takes an examination late, he or she will receive the grade of credit, C-, D+, D, D-, or F. No other letter grades will be given for a late examination.
A student who fails to schedule and take a makeup examination in an emergency situation shall be given an "F" for that course.
The University of New Mexico School of Law will retain all student examination materials for a period of one year. Students are encouraged to review their own exams and discuss them with their Professors if they have any questions.
