1 Please note that the Law School rules provide that: Absence by a student from more than twenty percent of the total number of classes or lectures in any course will exclude the student from examinations in the course and the grade given shall be F (numerical grade 50) save in exceptional cases when, by vote of the faculty upon written petition, the student will be permitted to drop the course, and except when this rule is waived as provided hereinafter. In his or her discretion, the instructor of the course may permit a student who has been absent from more than twenty percent of the classes to take the final examination, subject to a penalty of five points on the student's numerical grade for each excessive absence, or some lesser penalty as determined by the instructor. Such penalties shall be subtracted from the student's grade before recording in the Dean's Office, and the lowered numerical grade shall control the official letter grade reported to the University. This is referred to as the 20% rule.
