On 2 January, the exams in Family law and the law of succession and the Elective courses on the Law of Obligations were interrupted by a minor fire and subsequent power cut at Fuglesangs Allé. Vice-dean Per Andersen has now decided to compensate the students for the conditions under which the two exams were held. This is to ensure that all students have been given optimum and uniform conditions in connection with the exam. 

For students on the two courses, the decision has the following implications:

Family law and the law of succession:

All students who took the exam on 2 January will have their exam paper assessed, but will also be offered a re-examination in February.

If the students choose to take the re-examination, they can subsequently choose whether they wish to keep the grade from the ordinary exam on 2 January or the grade from the re-examination. The re-examination does not count as one of the student’s three examination attempts.

Elective courses on the Law of Obligations:

All students who took the exam on 2 January will have their exam paper assessed. Students who do not pass the test will automatically be compensated with an additional examination attempt without having to apply for dispensation. The additional examination attempt does not count as one of the student’s three examination attempts.

The legal basis for the above decisions is section 21 of the Examination Order.
