Columbia Law Re-Scheduling Exams Over Michael Brown and Eric Garner “Trauma”

Courtesy of Powerline blog it appears that Columbia Law School is allowing students the opportunity to petition for a delay in exam administration in cases where students are “claiming to be impaired due to the emotional impact of recent non-indictments in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner matters.”

The law school has a policy and set of procedures for students who experience trauma during exam period. In accordance with these procedures and policy, students who feel that their performance on examinations will be sufficiently impaired due to the effects of these recent events may petition Dean Alice Rigas to have an examination rescheduled.

According to Powerline, the option was requested by Columbia’s Black Student Association.
