The Schools Protect Themselves
Universities and Colleges hold a lot of power over your future. Under their Student Codes of Conduct, universities regulate and control the behavior of their students to protect their reputation and help students successfully obtain their education. When there is an allegation of a Title IX violation, or students are alleged to violate the Student Conduct Code, they are subject to a hearing process and potential punishment by the school.
Title IX investigations involve anything that prevents someone from getting a full education based upon their gender. The most common example is for sports teams, schools have to have an equal number of scholarships. However, we also see these cases when someone alleges they cannot attend school because of being stalked after a bad break up, or a similar violation of personal autonomy in, what should be a safe, public space.
Although conduct violations often result from arrests and criminal charges, you may also face punishment for non-criminal behaviors like misconduct at university activities, disruptive behavior, alcohol or student residence violations. If you have been accused of any type of violation within the university, public, or private school system, then we can assist you. Let us help you navigate the confusing morass of policies and procedures.
