The Fall Final Exams at the Faculty of Law are scheduled April  14 to April 28, 2023 (inclusive). All exams are held on weekdays and start at 9:30 or 14:30. The latest an exam may finish in the morning shift is 13:00, and 18:00 for an afternoon shift; this is determined by the length of the examination. Invigilators must arrive 30-45 minutes prior to the official examination start time: punctuality is crucial.

Invigilators ensure proper conditions exist for the writing of examinations and assist in the distribution and collection of all examination materials. Invigilators give instructions to students and handle problems. Therefore, they must have very good language skills in either English or French. We reserve the right to verify the accuracy of the application and to request an interview.

Mandatory Information Training Session: TBC

Exams in the Faculty of Law may run a minimum of 1 hour in length to a maximum of up to 3 1/2 hours.
