V. Interlocutory Orders
A. Pending final action on a disciplinary charge, the status of a student shall not be altered or his or her right to be present on Law School premises and to attend classes be suspended, unless suspension of the student is required for compelling reasons related to the student’s physical or emotional health or safety or to protection of the physical order or safety of the Law School community.
B. The Dean may withhold the degree of a graduating student where the timing of the filing of a disciplinary charge is such that the matter cannot be finally resolved before the scheduled graduation.
C. Determination that a student’s suspension is required by paragraph A shall be made by the Law School Committee on Student Conduct and Responsibility. In the event that the Dean determines that a student’s suspension is required by paragraph A before the Committee on Student Conduct and Responsibility can convene, the Dean may issue an order of suspension which shall be effective until after the first meeting of the Committee on Student Conduct and Responsibility regarding the charges filed.
D. After the Dean or the Dean’s representative has filed charges against a student with the Committee on Student Conduct and Responsibility, in the event that the Committee determines that there is probable cause to believe that a disciplinary sanction greater than a reprimand is appropriate, the Committee may issue an order delaying granting of the accused student’s degree until after final resolution of the charges pending against the student.
