The UNC School of Law, like many of its peers, uses secure software for the administration of exams. The software we use runs natively on both Windows and Apple operating systems and is covered by student fees. The software is required for students who choose to type their exam answers, with a few exceptions based on exam type and individual faculty needs. Most faculty greatly prefer that students use it instead of writing longhand.
Although the law school does not have a laptop requirement for students, all laptops must meet the following criteria in order to run the exam software.
The links to download the software are distributed each fall semester through an announcement on My Carolina Law and the daily "Today at Carolina Law" email.
