I could be wrong, but I think ABA rules say you need to pass LRW to graduate, so if you fail you will have to retake it. You can't sign up for 1L LRW through normal class registration, so the Dean is probably going to find out one way or another. I think you should go to the Dean's office and explain what is going on. Declaring halfway through the semester that a student absolutely will not pass seems off--it might violate a school policy. At the very least, maybe you can negotiate your way to an LP.
Yeah I realize all that. I was obviously overstating the specifics of my situation. But, as mentioned, I did so in order to preclude responses along the lines of advice regarding how to prevent X from happening. I wanted a simple answer to a question in the form "assuming X happens, what consequences?" I knew once I supplied specific content to the question ("assuming me failing LRW
happens, what consenquences?") the type of responses I would get would be along the lines of "talk to your instructor I'm sure deadlines can be extended" etc. etc. In order to avoid such responses I obviously overstated my case ("assume I failed, there's nothing I can do about it, what consequences?").
