Academic Integrity: Getting Representation When You Need It at Your School

Students invest a lot of time and money into getting their degrees. That's why it is so unfortunate when something seemingly harmless as plagiarism can jeopardize the opportunities a college or university provides a student. Disciplinary action can be taken for something like plagiarism as well as for many other potential academic charges. 

On the brighter side of things, if you are accused of violating the school's academic integrity policies, you will be able to defend yourself. You may have to go before a disciplinary or academic integrity panel, but you can mount a defense.

At some schools, you are permitted to have an advisor or attorney represent you. At other schools, you are not – but that doesn't mean an academic integrity defense lawyer cannot advise you on things like evidence, behavior, and options.  

Joseph D. Lento represents and advises students at some of the top schools and educational institutions in the nation. Here are a few of those schools:
