Attendance Policy

Podcasting is not a substitute for class attendance. All missed classes are counted against the student as an absence even if the student listens to a podcast of the missed class.


All classes will be recorded. Podcasts will be posted as soon as possible after they are recorded, unless the professor’s own policy stipulates that podcasts be released only when authorized. In these cases, students must make podcast release requests directly to the professor. No direct requests by students to the Associate Dean or other law school personnel will be honored. The decision to make podcasts available is solely within the discretion of the professor unless it involves an ADA accommodation.

Conditions for Granting Podcast Requests

ADA – Podcasts will be available to ADA students as an approved accommodation using the same process as all other ADA accommodations.

Other – Each professor may set his or her own criteria for granting podcast requests. Professors must make podcasts available to all students under uniform criteria to avoid any appearance of discrimination or favoritism.


All podcasts will be removed from the server each semester when the last exam, including make-ups, for that class has been administered.

Use and Dissemination of Podcasts

All podcasts are the property of Drake Law School and the professor and may not be redistributed in any form to any person. Violation of this policy is also a Honor Code violation.


Podcasts are not an entitlement. The law school is not liable for failure to record or post a podcast to the website.
