I will use e-mail to communicate
course-related announcements. You must provide me with
an e-mail address and monitor messages sent to that address.
Please send a blank e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org
with “Copyright Law Class” as the subject line.
If I do not receive an e-mail from you by Labor Day, I
assume you have already dropped the course.
You are required to attend all
classes. I reserve the right to take attendance,
although absences are obvious in a small class like this
student who has missed more than 15% of class meetings may
not be eligible for taking the final examination. You
must keep track of your own absences and will be informed if
you have missed more than 15% of the class meetings.
You will be excused for medical emergencies, recognized
religious holidays, or death in the immediate family only
if you inform me of the reasons for your absence.
There will be no final examination.
Your grade will be based on a take-home examination, in a
format to be determined. You can elect to take the
examination on any work day during the final examination
period (except the last day of the period). You must
complete the examination within 24 hours after receipt of
the examination. Instructions will follow.
I reserve the right to award extra credit for excellent
participation in class and to reduce your course grade for
lack of preparation for the class or for habitual tardiness
(i.e., arriving late for class). Extra credit (or
penalty) will only be added (or deducted) after the final
grade has been computed. Under no circumstances will
participation improve or reduce the final grade by more than
2/3 of your grade (e.g., from B- to B+).
