I have searched everywhere and cannot find this in any written policy. Do any of your schools have a written policy indicating when grades are due? If so, is there a penalty for not getting them in within the time limit? :roll:

Seriously, where are penalties for professors?

One class I haven't gotten the grade for is patent prosecution seminar, which was the earliest final I submitted, back in mid-April. The profs were very strict about our deadlines (11:59 PM) because it's the nature of their correspondences with the PTO. The contradiction is amazing.

There doesn't seem to be any accountablity with regards to professors. I understand that consideration should be given to the fact that many of the professors are practicing lawyers and that they have other responsiblities in their lives but at the same time they are getting paid and we are paying for lawschool and we too have lives. You are right, professors place strict deadlines like late submittal will result in the deduction of a letter grade/late submittal will result in a failing grade." There seems to be no mercy for student late submittal j/s

Welp, all grades are posted and I feel like I can finally breathe. I would have liked a half grade higher in Evidence and Con Law I, but I'm content with what I have. I aced Legal Writing IV, though! Hoorah! I'm hoping I get the CALI award for that class. All in all, I made the Dean's list and my cumulative GPA went up .03 so I'll take it.

Here's to a really lonnggggg 3LOL!

Woah - exceeded expectations this semester.
Transfered from T50 to T20 school to be in preferred geo region. 1st semster 3.3 - 2nd 3.85.
Now top 15% of class - hoping I can catch some luck on 3L oci, clerkships or other jobs. Anyone have any advice?

Also - think I got the highest grade in a class, but we dont do CALI awards. Is it lame to ask the professor?

Very. A) you have no idea if you did or not. If you got an A+ there may be multiple A+s. The one time I got an A+, I got the Cali, but I was not the only A+ in the class. B) knowing you got the highest grade does not matter unless you can put an actual award under your awards section on your resume. Since you don't get an actual award, you have nothing to put. So it's a useless item of knowledge that only makes you look like kind of a douche for asking. C) if you did get an A+, you'll probably want to hit this professor up for clerkship applications. You want him to think highly of you, which means not asking a question like that.

Well, law school continues to prove that what you get in class ≠ how good you are in practice. Oh well, at least I got what I needed.
