Wayne Law Professors' Previous / Sample Exams

Previous semesters' final exams by Wayne Law professors are available in the green books in the right corner, as you enter the Law Library. 

Newer exams are made available by professors at their discretion; not all professors release their final exams. If a professor decides to make a new exam available, he or she will usually inform the class how to access the new exam, and provide any special access instructions.

Students are always welcome to ask Law Librarians for recommendations for additional books or online materials to prepare for exams.
