  • Frequently Asked Questions | Pace Law School
    investigate the alleged offense which includes giving the accused student the opportunity to speak with them Once the investigation is complete the investigating committee determines either that there is not probable cause that an Honor Code violation occurred and dismisses the case or determines that there is probable cause that an Honor Code violation occurred and usually offers the student an informal resolution similar to a plea bargain What if the student doesn t want to accept the informal resolution You should know that if you accept an informal resolution it is an admission of guilt Your other option is to request a formal adjudication The investigating committee can also go directly to a formal adjudication without offering an informal resolution first Keep in mind that if you turn down an informal resolution and then at the formal adjudication you are found guilty it is very possible that you will receive a more severe sanction than what was offered as an informal resolution What happens at a formal adjudication The investigating committee acts as the prosecution for the case A judicial panel of three Honor Board members students and two faculty members is convened to hear the evidence The student defendant can but does not have to present a defense They can be represented if they wish and can request that the hearing be open to the public The hearing usually lasts a few hours and the judicial panel hands down a decision including sanctions if appropriate soon thereafter Can a student appeal the decision Yes you can appeal an adjudication panel s decision to the Dean of the Law School However if you accept an informal resolution you cannot then appeal How long does the whole process take The process can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to several months depending on different factors and procedural outcomes The Honor Board s policy is to expedite every case Especially in the case of an accused student who is close to graduation the case will be resolved as quickly as possible I just found out that I am under investigation What should I do Only you can decide what your best course of action is but some common advice is to confide in your friends and family and to consider retaining outside counsel if feasible You should learn and understand the adjudication procedure very well and keep track of the status of your case You should stay calm and continue to work on your studies as best you can A professor told me he gave my exam paper to the Honor Board for investigation but I have not heard anything more about it How can I find out what s going on You have a right to know whether there is an investigation pending against you and the status of it If it has been a couple of weeks and no one has officially notified you it is possible that your case was determined not to be an honor issue
