The Lawrentian reserves the right to deny any advertisement that does not adhere to both this policy and The Lawrentian Editorial Policy.

  1. Advertising of events for which the primary purpose is the consumption of alcohol is prohibited.

Advertisements must be approved by both the Editor-in-Chief, Layout Editor, and Advisor by Tuesday at midnight of that week’s paper. The Lawrentian also may deny or delay publication of an advertisement to a subsequent issue if unable to accommodate within the current issue.
