"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.
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.
