The University Council of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) approved changes to the legal systems, so it can now invalidate titles, certificates and degrees in case of ethical offenses such as plagiarism.

As of the reforms, the General Statute “in its article 5, indicates that the National University can now declare the absolute nullity of certificates, professional titles and degrees, when the academic and ethical requirements have not been fully covered.”
Enrique Graue Wiecher, rector of the UNAM, pointed out that with these modifications the legal vacuum that in the past has prevented taking action in case of irregularities was eliminated.
“It should not happen to us again that we do not have the mechanisms to manage unfortunate circumstances like these.”
