The General Board give notice that, on the recommendation of the Faculty Board or other authority concerned, the regulations for certain University examinations have been amended as follows:

Law Tripos, Examination in Criminal Law, and LL.M. Examination

The regulations for the Law Tripos have been amended (i) to replace Paper 42 'Principles of conveyancing law' with a new paper entitled 'Intellectual property'; (ii) to simplify the regulations governing the choice of papers available in Part IB of the Tripos; (iii) to extend the deadline by which applications to take part in the Part II seminar course must be submitted; and, for the Tripos and for the LL.M. Examination; (iv) to remove redundancies in the regulations; and (v) to require essays and theses to be computer or typewritten. In the references to the regulations for the Law Tripos below the current regulation numbering is used.

The regulations for the Examination in Criminal Law have been rescinded. This examination was originally provided to enable students to take the subjects required for professional exemption purposes in one year. This is not now possible as the professional bodies require at least two years of a qualifying law degree to have been spent studying law.

The Faculty Board of Law are satisfied that no candidate's preparation for the examination in 2003 will be adversely affected by these amendments.
