The John Marshall Law School recognizes the diversity of religious practices of its students, faculty and staff. Therefore, we have established a new policy of attendance to accommodate religious observance. In addition to the 25% allowed absences, students will be excused without penalty for two class sessions in each course enrolled every semester.

We further recognize that some faculty may choose to cancel and reschedule class to accommodate religious observance.
