The Importance of an Experienced Attorney-Adviser in Student Disciplinary Proceedings
At Spodek Law Group, our experienced attorneys understand the importance of having a knowledgeable and supportive adviser in the student disciplinary process. When a student is accused of something, the potential consequences can be overwhelming and emotional. This is where an experienced attorney-adviser can provide crucial emotional and psychological support to the client.
Understanding the School’s Policies and Procedures
The role of an adviser in the student disciplinary process is to thoroughly understand the school’s policies and procedures. This includes what to expect in terms of addressing and adjudicating the case. It is important to advise the client on the nature of the case, the potential consequences, and to prepare them for any meetings that may take place.
Avoiding Potential Pitfalls and Missteps
An adviser can help the client avoid potential pitfalls and missteps that could arise during the course of a campus disciplinary proceeding. This can include negotiating with the Title IX office, speaking to the school’s Office of General Counsel, and the school’s attorney. By taking additional steps as necessary to help try to achieve a favorable outcome, an experienced attorney-adviser can be an accused student’s best resource.
Emotional and Psychological Support
The emotional and psychological support provided by an adviser is invaluable. Being accused of something can be a traumatic experience, and an experienced attorney-adviser can provide the support needed to navigate the process. They can also help prepare the client for meetings, and provide guidance throughout the process.
