The UW Academic Calendar, which gives information for several years into the future, is helpful in getting dates for the first day of classes (fall term only) and holidays, but does NOT provide accurate information for Law School orientation, last day of Law classes, Law exam periods, grade reports, or spring-term first day of Law classes.
