SANTA BARBARA Hundreds of law school students will fire up their computers and start combing through their notes on Monday as they start three days’ worth of take-home finals because of the coronavirus outbreak.
According to a statement from the Santa Barbara and Ventura Colleges of Law, the exams will be delivered to students at 9 a.m. on Monday through the Canvas online class management platform.
Students will answer essay questions in a word document, then upload the document on canvas. The exams are due at 9 a.m. on March 30.
The school has campuses at 20 E. Victoria St. in Santa Barbara and 475 Market St. in Ventura.
School President Dr. Matt Nehmer said all summer campus-based classes will be delivered online. The school’s “hybrid” law school program, which supplements onlines classes with on campus “residencies,” will be delivered entirely online during the coronavirus outbreak.
Spring semester grades will be assigned on a pass/fail grading system.
