Law students scheduled to take final exams at the University of Maryland’s law school in Baltimore beginning on Monday got a concession amid rioting and protests in the city.

The school announced that students could take exams at home at the time of their choice, within a 48-hour period, the National Law Journal (sub. req.) reports. The exam period began on Monday.

Students taking the exams at home must download testing software that blocks access to hard drives or the Internet, which is intended to prevent cheating.

The exam period hasn’t begun yet at the University of Baltimore’s law school.

Meanwhile, the University of the District of Columbia’s law school offered to delay one final exam for students who provide legal support for Baltimore protesters, the NLJ story says. Advance approval is needed. Its final exams began on Wednesday.
