All faculty, staff and students are required to evacuate the building during a fire alarm. If a fire alarm sounds, doors to rooms should be closed and students should proceed to the closest exit. When the alarm sounds, please leave the building immediately. Pack up your belongings that are with you quickly and DO NOT go to your locker. Always assume it is a real event, and not a drill, until you are told otherwise.
Registering for the MPRE
The regular registration deadline for the MPRE is September 19. The late registration deadline is September 26. The MPRE will next be offered in March 2020.
Support for Students Assembling Bar Exam Applications
The Office of Student Affairs supports students as they wrestle with their bar registrations and applications. In particular, if there is student interest, the OSA would be happy to facilitate student “clubs” where students who are taking the same bar collaborate in working up timelines and discuss common issues. Currently, Dean Orenstein has identified California, New York, and Ohio as bars that present special deadlines or demands. Please contact Dean Orenstein if you would like to participate in occasional brief meetings over coffee and banana bread with other students taking your same bar.
