Sample/Old Exams

Sample exams from Wayne Law Professors are available in the green bound volumes on the bookshelves to the right as you enter the library. 

Newer exams may be made available by professors at their discretion.  If a professor decides to make a new exam available the class he or she will usually inform the class and provide any special access instructions. Students may also inquire at the reference desk.
