2.12 Awards, Fellowships, and Academic Credit Restrictions

The Law School does not allow students to use academic work completed at the Law School in a credit bearing course to also fulfill the requirements of funded awards or fellowships, or to meet the requirements for an agency that would be providing monetary compensation to the student. For example, a student who has earned academic credit for an Independent Research paper at the Law School, cannot also use that paper to meet requirements of a fellowship that ultimately provides funds to the student. This rule is applicable to any outside agencies providing awards, fellowships, or honors that also grant monetary compensation.
