Judicial Panel

The Student Codes of Conduct (Academic Integrity and Non-Academic) (the “Codes”) are intended to ensure consistency and fairness for every student in the University through the consistent application of the procedures for the adjudication of cases of student academic and non-academic misconduct.
Judicial Panel members hear appeals of decisions made by Judicial Officers under the Codes. Article II, Sections 2.01 and 2.02 of the Student Code of Conduct – Appeal Policy require the Board to appoint 8 tenured faculty members to the Judicial Panel on the recommendation of the President, and 7 students on the recommendation of the Lakehead University Student Union (LUSU). The members of the Judicial Panel shall be appointed for up to three (3) year renewable staggered terms. The composition and procedures of the Judicial Panel are set out in the "Student Code of Conduct - Appeal Policy and Judicial Panel Procedures", which is available on the Policies and Procedures section of the website
