further down as in T3/T4...or as in not T25?

Whether you can bring anything into an exam is entirely up to the professor, it has nothing to do with the school as far as I know. The only general rule is that most sane professors are going to at least allow you to bring your rule book to a Civ Pro exam or any other exam in a code-based class for that matter.
Doesn't really matter whether it's open or closed book. You probably won't have time to refer to your outline often-
I think, in general, the further down in the rankings the school is the more likely its profs are to have closed book exams.

I believe the professors think they are doing the students a favor for the Bar exam by forcing them to "learn" the material up front (as one professor told my 1L class, "The Bar Exam is not open book.") I find, however, that I have a far deeper understanding of the material for the few open-book subjects that I had, and I am sure that the quality of my answers on those exams was much higher. Not really sure why that is . . . perhaps I spent more time learning how to apply the law, rather than just memorizing it.
