Past Exams

The law library provides online access to past exams given in the law school. Faculty are not required to submit their exams, so not all exams are available.

You must enter your CUA user name and password to view and print exams. 

Exams are searchable by professor and by course. Use the search box below to locate exams.

Need Help?

Virtual Exam Review

The Virtual Exam Review system allows law students to request their own exam submission and, if available, the exam questions/prompts and any other supplementary or explanatory material made available by the faculty (e.g. model answers).

Visit the Law Library’s TWEN page for more information and to submit a request.
