The process usually works within each class, where the teacher marks each exam and then ranks the exams relative to each other, adding and subtracting the first marks so that the overall distribution of grades matches the curve specified by the school (usually a bell curve). “The curve” is the permissible range of each type of letter that can be assigned, e.g. 0-3% A+, 3-7% A, etc. The curves vary from law school to law school, as do the rules indicating when the curve is mandatory or suggestive. It is common for the curve to be mandatory for first-year (“1L”) courses and for classes above a certain size.

A credit rating cannot be assigned for required courses and/or directed research. A credit score is awarded for some LLM zero credit courses and the JD Lawyering course.

Each faculty member who wishes to exercise this discretion will receive a list of student identification information from the archives (after their theses have been blindly graded and pre-grades have been submitted).

It is the faculty member`s responsibility to compile a list of their final grades and submit them to the registry office.
