Prohibition Against Tape Recording Class Sessions

Based upon a resolution approved by the faculty, tape recording of class sessions is prohibited except to accommodate:

  1. A student's observance of a religious holiday. If a student plans to miss class due to religious observation, the Office of the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs must be notified one week in advance of the class(es) to be taped;
  2. A student's absence from a make-up class scheduled at a time that conflicts with a regularly scheduled class. If a conflict exists between a make-up class and a regularly scheduled class, please notify the Office of the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs as soon as the make up class is announced, so the request may be processed;
  3. A student's documented disability as a part of services recommended for and provided to students under the Americans with Disabilities Act;
  4. Students who are called to active military duty;
  5. Students in the LL.M. Legal Process class when the instructor has determined that the student is having difficulty in understanding spoken English.

Procedures — Students who are within one of the above exceptions and wish to request audio taping of one or more class sessions must submit a tape request form to the Office of the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs to make arrangements. The form is available in the Office of the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.

Tape recording, when approved, is provided by the Media Resources Department. Unless other arrangements are made, the CDs will be available for pick up at the Library Reserve Desk.
