I'm currently enrolled in a Master's coursework program in Australia and I've just completed my first semester. I've been looking into going to law school in Australia after I'm done. I submitted my law school application and I got accepted but here's where I encountered my current problem.
I was reading over my master's application and in the fine print, it asks me to declare that I have not been excluded or subject to disciplinary action at the university level. I missed this when I was applying and that's my fault. See, I plagiarized and was found guilty during the first semester of my Canadian undergraduate degree. I plead guilty and took the penalties, which included a reduction in my final grade. There is no notation on my transcript. I never plagiarized again and felt extremely ashamed for what I had done. Now that I have become aware of this error in my master's application, I'm wondering how I tell my university about it. I do not want to hide it and I want to make them aware of the issue. Who should I contact at my university?
Also, in my law school application, it asked if I had been excluded or suspended from a course or asked to show why my enrollment should not be suspended/terminated. While there are no questions about plagiarism, how should I disclose this issue to the law school?
