Students enrolled in the School of Law are subject to the provisions regarding student conduct and procedures governing student discipline contained in the separate publication entitled “UCLA Student Conduct Code.” Copies of this document are available at the main campus Office of the Dean for Students, 1206 Murphy Hall, or online.
Students caught cheating on examinations or papers, committing plagiarism or submitting work which is a “multiple submission” [i.e., the resubmission of any work which has been previously or simultaneously submitted for credit in identical or similar form in one course to fulfill any of the requirements of another course without the prior consent of the current instructor(s)], or submitting written work drafted or edited in any way by an artificial intelligence (AI) content generator (including but not limited to OpenAI's ChatGPT, Microsoft's Bing AI Chatbot, and Google's Bard), without the prior and explicit approval by the instructor, are subject to University disciplinary proceedings pursuant to the UCLA Student Conduct Code. In the event that the instructor grants approval to use AI content generators in drafting or editing submitted written work, unless the instructor explicitly states otherwise, the student must disclose the name of the AI content generator used and the prompts given to the AI that produced the draft or edited content. Documentation of any resulting proceedings and/or disciplinary action will remain contained in the student's admissions file for the period of time the file is retained. The occurrence of such disciplinary proceedings will be communicated to the Bar Examiners to whom the law school must certify candidates for bar admission.
The School of Law will report to the University for appropriate disciplinary proceedings any misrepresentation by a student of the student's academic record. Should disciplinary proceedings result in a finding that a student has made a willful misrepresentation that finding will be reported to the governing Bar Association or Committee of Bar Examiners of any state in which the student seeks admission to the Bar.
Once admitted to the School of Law, a student has a continuing duty to update the information included in the student’s application for admission. This includes a duty to disclose any and all omissions from the application for admission, and it includes a duty to disclose any and all conduct and events that occur after submission of the application, if such conduct or events would have required disclosure in the application for admission. This duty of disclosure continues until the student has graduated or formally withdraws from the School of Law. Students must disclose upon the occurrence of the event (e.g., an arrest) and cannot wait for resolution of the matter before disclosing. Failing to make the necessary disclosures described herein, or disclosure of conduct in violation of university policy or federal, state or local laws, may result in disciplinary action up to and including revocation of an offer of admission or dismissal from the university. Disclosure should be made to the Dean of Students.
