Missing Students Policy

Concerns regarding a law student being unreachable or missing should be referred to the Law School Dean of Students Office. Upon receipt of such a concern, the Dean of Students will determine an appropriate course of action on a case by case basis, balancing the privacy of our adult students with legitimate concerns for safety and well-being. The Dean of Students Office may contact the student directly, inform the University Police, communicate to the emergency contact provided by the student, or take other appropriate action. Any such response will occur within a reasonable time of the report and applicable student privacy laws will govern communications regarding the law student.

Absent additional facts or circumstances, the failure of a law student to attend class, participate in school activities or respond to communications from law school personnel will not result in the law school taking action under this policy.
