VI. Disposition by Consent

A.   If the accused student and the Dean or Dean’s representative agree on a disposition of the charges involving any disciplinary sanction more severe than an oral warning or reprimand, the Dean or Dean’s representative shall file both the charges and the proposed consensual disposition with the Law School Committee on Student Conduct and Responsibility. 

B.  The Committee shall accept the proposed disposition as final unless the disposition is prejudicial to the welfare of theLawSchool, unduly deprecates the severity of the offense charged or punishes the student excessively for the offense charged.  If a majority of the Committee accepts the proposed disposition, that disposition shall be given effect as a final disposition of the case.  If a majority of the Committee votes against accepting the proposed disposition, the Dean or Dean’s representative may proceed under either IV.D.(1) or (2). 

C.   The Dean or Dean’s representative may file a proposed consensual disposition at any point before final judgment of the Committee.
