Honor Code

The current University of Minnesota Law School Honor Code is available here.

In May 2014, the Law School's Honor Code Council proposed substantial revisions to the Honor Code, which may be reviewed here. The proposed revisions will be put forth for review and approval by the Law School student body in late September 2014.

The changes proposed by the Honor Code Council were designed to: reinforce a shared community commitment to academic integrity; address the impact of changing technology in the Law School learning environment; clearly identify conduct that violates the Code; address via grading adjustments short lapses in timely exam submission; highlight potential consequences of a violation; and overall to reduce the incidences of academic misconduct at the Law School.
