1. Deadline for All Students
Absent earlier deadlines set by the student’s faculty supervisor, all submissions for Option 1 of the J.D. Written Work Requirement, the LL.M. Written Work Requirement, Optional Written Work, and the Winter Term Writing Program are due on April 20, 2018.
2. Extensions for May Degree Candidates (J.D. and LL.M.)
Individual instructors, upon advising the Registrar (for J.D. Students) or the Graduate Committee (for LL.M. students) in writing that they believe that a satisfactory project can be completed and that there will be sufficient opportunity to evaluate the paper, may grant extensions after April 20, 2018 up until the final deadline of May 10, 2018 (see Section VIII).
3. Extensions for 1Ls and 2Ls
a) Students may request an extension of one term beyond the term in which the paper is due. With an extension, the work will be due on the last day of classes of the following term.
b) Students with an approved extension will receive an EXT on the transcript for the writing credits and, if applicable, any course or seminar credits in conjunction with the paper, until the work is completed and graded (see Section I(N)). In the absence of an EXT notation or a course/paper grade, a WD will be entered on a student’s transcript. However, if failure to complete credits for a course or written work will result in a student dropping below the semester or year required credit minimum, the student must complete the work or receive an F grade.
