Absent express permission, no academic work, including examinations, papers in lieu of exams, optional papers, seminar papers, exercises or journals, papers written in satisfaction of the J.D. Written Work Requirement or the LL.M. Written Work Requirement or revisions thereto, may be submitted for degree credit after the final deadlines specified above. Such permission will be granted only with the permission of the instructor and in certain cases will also require the Administrative Board to find that:
1. The delay in submission of the work was caused by a serious personal or medical emergency;
2. The delay will not prejudice the evaluation of the work by the instructor; and
3. The delay will not prejudice the preparation of the final degree list, including awards, by the Office of the Registrar.
