The Honor System
The Honor System was first established at William & Mary in 1779 and is one of the most cherished traditions of the Law School. It assumes that principles of honorable conduct are familiar and dear to all students and hence dishonorable acts will not be tolerated. The Honor System is administered by the students with the advice of the faculty and the highest administrative officers of the College, all of whom share a deep interest in the maintenance of high standards of honor. Students found guilty of cheating, stealing or lying are subject to dismissal.
As a student, you have a responsibility to read, understand and follow the tenets of the Honor Code.
