Hazing Law

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in response to incidents involving personal injury and death, has prohibited the act of hazing. The term "hazing" shall mean any conduct or method of initiation into any student organization, athletic team or other student group, whether on public or private property, which willfully or recklessly endangers the physical or mental health of any student or other person. Such conduct shall include (but is not limited to) whipping, beating, branding, forced calisthenics, exposure to the weather, forced consumption of any food, liquor, beverage, drug, or other substance, or any other brutal treatment or forced physical activity which is likely to adversely affect the physical health or safety of any such student or other person or which subjects such students or other persons to extreme mental stress, including extended deprivation of sleep or rest or extended isolation. Notwithstanding any other provisions, consent shall not be available as a defense to any prosecution under this action.
