Your reputation precedes you.

Students at the University of Baltimore School of Law must exhibit high standards of academic and professional responsibility. This includes adhering to the School of Law Honor Code.

  "...[A] lawyer should seek improvement of the law, access to the legal system, the administration of justice and the quality of service rendered by the legal profession"

  - Preamble, Maryland Rules of Professional Conduct

The Honor Code is maintained by the Honor Board, a group of students and faculty members who work to promote professionalism at the School of Law. The Honor Board educates the Law School community about the principles of the Honor Code and implements the Honor Code procedures when violations are alleged.

Professor Amy Dillard is the designated Process Aide for 2015-16. Each year, the Dean appoints a full-time faculty member to serve as a "Process Aide" for students who are involved in Honor Code proceedings. At the student's request, the Process Aide will provide information about the Honor Code process and alternatives available at each stage. The Process Aide is not the student's attorney.
