Sent on behalf of Lauren Winchell, Chief Justice of the Honor Council:

Dear 1Ls and 2Ls:

Honor Council elections are just around the corner!  This is a nomination process, not a campaign process. Keep in mind the seriousness and great honor of this position.  Please review the Honor Code, Section 21 of the Academic Regulations found here.

The personal statements will be posted onto the On Legal Grounds blog.

  • If you do not attend the meeting, we will assume that you are not accepting your nomination.
  • If you notify Lauren Winchell at ldsprlck@memphis.eduprior to the meeting with a valid excuse for missing the meeting, your nomination position will be held.
