For example, additional time may be used to integrate updated techniques or instruction from the high liability textbook, apply relevant case law or review topics from the curriculum textbook not specifically designated for classroom instruction. Because these hours may be distributed to other courses in the cross-over program, a written end-of-course exam is not required for the cross-over program updates course.
