Valparaiso University Law School Student Code of Conduct

Student Code of Conduct Process

Legend: Wesemann Hall & Heritage Hall

–  –  –

Founded in 1879, the Law School embraces law as a calling to leadership and service. Our legal education blends theoretical and practical skills with humanitarian values to ready lawyers for that calling. The Law School is a community of learning, inquiry, and opportunity dedicated to excellence in legal education and invested in the academic and personal success of its students, preparing and empowering them to serve others and fulfill their potential in their chosen careers.

Valparaiso University (VU) is a private university located in Valparaiso, Indiana (55 miles southeast of Chicago, Illinois).

VU was founded in 1859 as the Valparaiso Male and Female College and rechartered in 1906 as Valparaiso University. In 1925, VU was purchased by the Lutheran University Association, an Indiana corporation comprised of persons affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and interested in actively promoting higher education in the Christian context.

VU continues to be the largest Lutheran-affiliated educational institution in the U.S. The University holds membership in the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The Valparaiso University Law School (Law School) was founded in 1879 as the Northern Indiana Law School. In 1905 it became part of Valparaiso University. The Law School received its American Bar Association accreditation in 1929 and was admitted into membership in the Association of American Law Schools in 1930. The degree of Juris Doctor, which is granted by the School, is approved by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York. The Law School offers the traditional three-year full-time program, an accelerated two-and-a-half year program, and a five-year part-time program toward the Juris Doctor degree, a Master of Laws degree program, and the following dual degree programs;

J.D./M.B.A., J.D./M.A., Psychology, and J.D./M.S., Sports Administration.

The University offers a three-year full-time program, an accelerated program, and a five-year part-time program leading to the degree of Juris Doctor (J.D.). In no case may a student construct a schedule which permits conferral of the degree prior to five regular fulltime semesters plus qualifying summer sessions or eight part-time residency semesters plus two or more summer sessions. The degree is conferred upon recommendation of the faculty of the Law School. All work toward a degree must be completed to the satisfaction of the faculty. In all cases, the student is responsible for meeting the requirements for graduation.

A student who returns to the Law School after an absence of two or more years may no longer be a candidate for a degree on the basis of the Bulletin under which the student first entered the University but must fulfill for graduation all the requirements and provisions of the Bulletin of the year in which the student re-enters the University.
