The legal profession is a self-regulated profession; meaning judges and lawyers determine
their own professional standards and enforce them. That tradition of self-regulation
starts in the law school with the Honor Code and Honor Council. The Honor Code is
a code of professional and academic standards. The Honor Council enforces the Honor
Code. The Honor Council is composed of eleven law students elected by the student
body. The Honor Council investigates and prosecutes alleged violations of the Honor
Code. All first-year law students will take an oath at law school orientation to
honor the values reflected in the Code.
More detailed information about the Honor Code can be found in the Academic Regulations.
