Reinstatement After Serving Active Duty


Students whose absence from the University results from being called to active duty for more than 30 days will be reinstated at the University with their same academic status if: 1) they provide notice of such service, and other documentation required by law, to either the Associate Dean of the College or the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of the School of Law, as appropriate; 2) within three years of their completion of service (or within two years after any period necessary to recover from an injury incurred or aggravated during such service) they notify the appropriate dean in writing of their intent to return; and 3) the cumulative length of all absences from the University for service in the armed forces of the United States does not exceed five years. (American Bar Association rules require that the Juris Doctor must be completed within 84 months after the beginning of law study.)
