Proposed Revisions to Code of Conduct. (From Prof. Edward Lee:) Dean Krug formed a Task Force earlier this semester to examine if changes should be made to the Code of Conduct in light of advances in generative AI technology. With the consultation of the faculty, the Task Force has recommended that the Code of Conduct be amended to clarify what uses of AI are not permissible in course work and final exams. The proposed amendments are available by clicking here. Under the proposed amendment, instructors retain the discretion to expressly authorize students to use AI technology in course work or final exams without constituting a violation. Students may submit any comments or questions about the proposed amendment to Prof. Lee, the Task Force chair, at by Monday, March 13.

Classrooms for Remote Use. If you are taking an online class this semester, we have reserved rooms at the Law School for you to use if you won't have sufficient time to travel from home to school (or vice versa) in between your online class and an on-site class you have the same day. These rooms will remain the same throughout the semester. Click here for the list. Please note: You will each connect to class individually in Zoom and should have earphones or headphones with you.

Counseling Services. This is a reminder that the university provides counseling services free of charge for students. Click here for details on the available resources, including individual counseling through Skylight Counseling Services. In addition to resources available through the university, the Lawyers Assistance Program also provides assistance to law students.
