Washington and Lee School of Law past examinations are held in the Recorderís Office (as complete a collection as possible), in the Lewis F. Powell, Jr. Archives (only exams given to the library through the years by professors), and by the Law Library Circulation Department (generally, the three most recent exams in each subject given by current faculty - see law.wlu.edu/library/page.asp?pageid=577 for a list).
Exams currently held by the Law library Circulation Department are available in paper copy at the Circulation Desk, and, with faculty approval, are available on the Law Library's web site. 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 no longer employed by the law school are open to the public.
There is no access to the exams in the Recorderís Office, except by professors and administrators who need to see them in the course of their work.
