The College of Law offers the option of taking your exams on your laptop. Availability of this option is determined by the instructor for each course. If you have further questions, please see your course syllabus or the Frequently Asked Questions Web Page.
The College of Law has adopted the SofTest software offered by ExamSoft Worldwide. The software is available for purchase at the ISBA Bookstore, room 218.
Minimum System Requirements:
SofTest can be used on virtually any modern computer (i.e. purchased within the last 3-4 years). Specific system requirements are available here.
It is not possible to take secure exams through a virtual operating system such as Microsoft's Virtual Machine, Parallels or VMware, VMware Fusion or any other virtual operating system environment. Although SofTest can be installed and registered on virtual platforms, it will only be enabled in these settings for non-secure Practice Exams.
These requirements represent the minimum required to run the software for the Laptop Exams. If you would like assistance purchasing a new laptop, the Law Library technology staff can help.
