Student Complaint Process
Student Complaint Process
The University of Kentucky College of Law is accredited by the American Bar Association and subject to the ABA Standards for Approval of Law Schools. ABA Standard 512 can be found here.

Filing a Complaint
All complaints must be submitted in writing to the Assistant Dean of Administration and Community Engagement via the Web-based Student Complaint Form or the PDF Student Complaint Form (which must be sent via email, U.S. Mail, or fax).

The complaint must meet the following requirements:
  • Explain in detail the behavior, program, process, or other matter that is at issue, and describe how the matter directly implicates the law school’s program of legal education and its compliance with a specific, identified ABA Standard.
  • Contain the student’s name, student ID#, law school email address, and current mailing address.
Resolving a Complaint
Within 10 business days after a complaint from a student is received, the Assistant Dean of Administration and Community Engagement, or the Assistant Dean’s designee, will advise the student in writing of any action the College of Law is taking to address the matter. If further investigation is needed, the student will be provided with a response to the complaint within 10 business days after completion of the investigation.

Appeal Process
A student may appeal a decision on a complaint within 10 business days from the date of the response by the Assistant Dean of Administration and Community Engagement. Any appeal will be brought before the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Any appeal from the decision of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs will be brought before the Dean of the College of Law. The Dean’s decision is final.

Keeping a Record of Complaints
The Assistant Dean of Administration and Community Engagement will keep a record of the Standard 512 complaints and resolutions for eight years from the date of final resolution of the complaint.
