At Harvard, lapses by scholars put focus on plagiarism policy

"CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- When it comes to its students, Harvard University policy shows little tolerance for plagiarism. Undergraduates found guilty of 'misusing sources' will 'likely' be required to withdraw from the college for at least two semesters. They will lose all coursework they have done that semester (unless it is virtually over), along with the money they have paid for it.

With such a policy for students, what is Harvard to do when two of its most prominent law professors, Charles Ogletree Jr. and Laurence Tribe, publicly acknowledge that they have unintentionally misused sources, as happened this fall? Weighing in on the matter, Harvard's student newspaper, The Harvard Crimson, said the university appeared to have one set of rules for its famous professors and another for its students."
