Revised course and exam schedule information for Fall 2020

  • 17 July 2020

 Dear Students,


There have been several changes to the Fall 2020 class schedule, with adjustments to class meeting times and room assignments.  Please note that we are still working on collecting information for those students who plan to participate remotely, and are working out the details for classroom capacity based upon the information we have received from the health and safety experts.   It is possible that changes to room assignments or course capacity could be made prior to the start of the fall semester.  


An updated copy of the Fall 2020 Registration Materials including the schedule of course offerings (Section IV) has been posted on the Academic Services page of the TLS Intranet along with the schedule grid.  All changes that have been made since the initial distribution of these materials are indicated in red.   If the course is planned to be offered completely online, it will be listed as such in the listing of courses.   Please note that portions of some classes that are being taught in person may be offered remotely.  The class schedule information for all courses offered at Tulane, including the law courses, is also available online at

Additional Exam Announcements

  • 24 April 2020

If you have not already done so, please make sure to use the Mock test for spring 2020. We created the mock test for spring 2020 to include an attachment similar to how the test will be attached to the exam file.    Students should use the Spring 2020 mock test to practice use of the software and accessing an attachment so that they are prepared for the exam period.   You would be able to access attached documents under Exam Controls or under Tools. 


An additional 10 minutes will be added to all exam times in order to allow students to review, read and/or print the test document.   Please note that exams which do not allow for internet access will disable Wi-Fi once you have logged in to start the exam.   Those who have wireless printers may wish to use a cable to connect the printer to the laptop directly. 


It should be noted that exams which allow for internet access will have the copy/paste function disabled; however all other functions, such as the search or find tool, spellcheck and other word processing tools will remain active.
