Student Disciplinary Hearings Cincinnati OH

Representing Students In University Disciplinary Hearings And In Court

“Disciplinary Hearings involve a process for which we believe it is difficult if not impossible for a student to fairly defend themselves.”

If you are charged with violating your school’s conduct or academic code, it can jeopardize your academic standing and future career goals. If this occurs, it is crucial that you seek legal advice and guidance from an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible.

As some of Ohio’s premier criminal defense attorneys, Joslyn Criminal Defense Law Firm also has experience protecting the rights of students in civil rights cases and Title IX litigation. It is crucial that you seek legal advice from an experienced student defense attorney who can help formulate a legal strategy that helps you achieve the best possible result for your situation.

Students are often naïve about university personnel such as the campus police and school administrators and how they can affect academic life. These individuals have a job to perform and must ensure that all appropriate parties abide by school regulations, rules, and procedures. When schools charge students with conduct and academic code violations, parents may feel betrayed since the academic institution entrusted with their child’s education is now acting as an adverse party. This often results from parents also being uninformed about school conduct and academic rules, regulations, and procedures, which are typically based on student disciplinary codes and our court system.

Defending you for an alleged violation of your school’s conduct and academic code requires an attorney experienced with university and school student conduct codes. More importantly, it also requires an attorney that appreciates and understands the risk to your reputation that’s involved, which may ultimately have long-lasting effects on your academic and professional career. While you may think that maintaining silence and cooperating with campus authorities may be a good alternative, you still risk receiving any final result without the benefit of practical legal advice and guidance.

Information For Students

The following are precautionary actions that you should take if you receive a notice from your educational institution that it is charging you with a violation of the university’s conduct or academic code:

  • Do NOT discuss your case with law enforcement personnel, school administrators, teachers, campus police, friends, or classmates.
  • Take control of the situation by contacting an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Call Joslyn Criminal Defense Law Firm for a free consultation. We can help you determine the gravity of the situation and what needs to be done to remedy it and move forward.
  • Do not assume there will not be consequences for your conduct. Regardless of the conduct itself, these types of violations may be serious enough that they still negatively affect your future. The sooner you address the problem, the sooner you will solve the problem. The true severity of the problem may depend on how soon and how well you handle it.
