Washington and Lee School of Law past examinations are held in the Recorder’s Office, in the Lewis F. Powell, Jr. Archives, and by the Law Library Circulation Department. View a list of available exams here.
Exams currently held by the Law Library Circulation Department are available in paper copy at the Circulation Desk, and, with faculty approval, are available online. These exams are available only to W&L law students, professors and staff.
In the Powell Archives, exams written by current W&L law faculty, whether or not they are in residence and regardless of status (i.e. permanent, adjunct, or visitor,) may be accessed only with the permission of the faculty member who wrote the exam. Exams of professors who have retired or are otherwise separated from the law school are open to the public.
There is no access to the exams in the Recorder’s Office, except by professors and administrators who need to see them in the course of their work.
