Faculty Regulations for the J.D. Program

To graduate, each student must satisfy the academic requirements which are set forth in detail in the Faculty Regulations. Any questions regarding the interpretation of a regulation or its application to a particular situation should be addressed to the Associate Dean for Students. If a student feels that a regulation should not be applied to a particular situation or wishes to appeal the Associate Dean’s interpretation of or decision under the Faculty Regulations, he/she may request that the Faculty Administrative Committee review the matter. To do so, a student must submit a concise written petition to the Associate Dean setting forth the student’s request for an exception to the Faculty Regulations and the basis for that request. Students have no right to appear before the Administrative Committee, but may be requested by the Committee to do so.
