1. The exam is an open book exam without restrictions. This
means you can bring any written materials (printed or handwritten in hardcopy rather
than material you have access to that is stored on a laptop or
available online) you wish to the exam whether
prepared by you, me or anyone else. This can include commercially
2. You MUST bring your
casebook to the exam because I may refer to a case or statute by
reference to the page where it appears in the casebook. I have
done this on some past exams.
3. The statutes (and related policies in the case of the UDRP)
that you are
responsible for on the exam include:
