Defense For Colleges Facing Academic And Residential Discipline Liability

Colleges and universities have to deal with a wide range of potential disciplinary situations. These institutions put in place processes to handle those situations. However, many of them can present highly unique sets of facts that can create challenges in implementing discipline.

Even when a discipline situation seems straightforward, a student or his or her parents may have a highly negative reaction to whatever discipline his or her child was given. Your institution may be facing legal action for a fair application of the internal discipline processes.

If you are facing an education liability claim due to an academic and residential disciplinary action, or alleged sexual assault, seek immediate legal representation. Call today to schedule a free case evaluation with an experienced defense lawyer at 718-619-4601.

Protecting Academic Institutions Against Liability For Student Discipline

When you are facing legal action over academic and residential discipline liability, the key to a sound defense can rest in strictly following your own internal policies and procedures. We can show that disciplinary procedures were made available to students through their student handbooks or some other avenue. We can also show how those policies provide a student with due process before any action such as academic suspension, expulsion or removal from campus occurred.
