Contacted by your school's Title IX office? Accused of violating your school's code of conduct? Received a notice of a disciplinary violation?


When universities handle misconduct claims, they have lawyers working on their side — and so should you. Campus judicial systems are not like courts of law. In campus proceedings, accused students and faculty often have very few rights, and it can be hard to get a fair shake. A finding against you can leave a stain on your permanent record making it hard to complete school, transfer, or get a job.  

One of the few rights you do have at most schools is the right to an advisor of your choice, including an attorney, who can help you through the process. Hiring an attorney versed in Title IX and campus discipline is a critical step to take in protecting your rights.

Contacted about a misconduct charge? Follow these steps:

  • If you are a student, don't be embarrassed. Tell your parents. This is not a situation you should be facing alone.  
  • Contact a campus disciplinary lawyer.  
  • Do not give a statement to the university or the police without speaking to a lawyer first.  
  • Do not delete anything! Back up your phone, computer, and online storage.
