A McGill University student is pleading for reform of the code of conduct following a vicious physical assault.

Chemical engineering student Kathryn Leci spent last semester coping with the effects of a an assault by fellow McGill student, Conrad Gaysford at an off-campus party.

Gaysford has been free on bail since charges were laid and has been allowed to continue his studies at the university. Leci says administrators told her since the attack happened off campus, the code of student conduct does not apply.

Leci told CBC News she has gotten very little support in the aftermath of the incident and is speaking up in hopes of changing how the system responds to those in need of help.

Her studies have been set back as she copes with post concussion symptoms that include nausea, memory loss, insomnia, tinnitus and anxiety.
