Adopting a regulatory function as the primary goal of a law school code seems appropriate. In light of that goal, this article next attempted to present the broad outlines of a code that would serve that goal. Such a code would provide for an initial investigatory phase regarding alleged code violations, with students playing the key role in this and subsequent phases of the process under the code, in order to determine that only meritorious allegations be pursued...Perhaps in light of the possible objectives of a law school code discussed in the beginning of this article, the ultimate objectives advocated here may sound unambitious or uninspiring. However, the effective provision of an ethical environment within the law school for the conduct of the school’s core academic functions is no small accomplishment.
