General Policy on Recording Classes for Students


The College of Law recognizes as sound practice the recording of classes for students who are absent for reasons of serious personal or family illness, death, or medical emergency in the immediate family; out-of-town travel for clinical assignments or to represent the college in an official capacity; conflicts among make-up classes; religious holidays; and other emergencies or serious obligations involving unforeseen or non-reschedulable events. The college does not encourage recording to accommodate placement activity, vacation time, or conflicting obligations that students can foresee and reschedule. Unless a professor grants his or her express permission, tapes of classes will not be made available to students not enrolled in the class.

Faculty members are encouraged to announce their policies on the first day of class. Students should familiarize themselves with their instructors’ policies.
