Protecting Students’ Rights in Maryland Colleges and Universities with Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek
When students attend college or university, they expect to have their rights protected. However, when violations occur, it’s essential to have an experienced attorney’s support to address the situation correctly. This article will discuss Maryland college students’ rights under federal and state laws and how the Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek can assist students who experience violations.
Rights of Maryland College Students
Maryland college students have legal rights under several federal and state laws. Some of the most common areas of these violations are under Title VI, discrimination in education, Title VII, employment discrimination, Title IX, sex discrimination, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), reasonable accommodations for documented medical needs.
In the event of these rights’ violations, there are different avenues available for potential resolution. Students attending public colleges and universities can bring what’s known as a 1983 claim, which is a violation of rights by a governmental body. For public schools, students can also bring a claim under the State Administrative Procedures Act, which specifies how the government must act and provides remedies if there is a violation.
Whether a school is public or private, students have contractual rights under a school’s policies, including its code of conduct. When a school fails to follow this contract, students can bring a claim for breach of contract.
