Handbook of Academic Policies

Hi everyone –

We look forward to welcoming you later this week!
As we get ready to start the school year, we want to introduce you to the Handbook  of Academic Policies  www.law.harvard.edu

The Handbook contains the School’s academic rules and policies, including detailed information about the requirements for degrees, registration and submission deadlines for all academic work, and policies regarding exams, academic honesty, and leaves of absence.

The Handbook also includes policies relating to your responsibilities as a member of the Law School and University communities.

Please familiarize yourself with the School’s requirements, academic and otherwise.  All law students are held accountable for the information included in the Handbook of Academic Policies.

If you have any questions about the rules or policies contained in the Handbook, please contact one of us.

Thanks and here’s to a great academic year!
