Can I be disqualified for certain jobs or careers as a result of a university disciplinary hearing?

A student may not get the job that he or she wants because of a university disciplinary hearing. It's not so much that they may be disqualified but if a student is found responsible for campus misconduct, if it involves Title IX sexual misconduct or an academic integrity or a misconduct charge or even a general disciplinary issue, depending on the severity of the offense, the circumstances of the case, it can limit future opportunities. For students, say, trying to pursue a certain career path and would need to possibly go to graduate school or even if graduate school is not a consideration to go, say, immediately into that field.

Graduate schools employers will often ask about a student's disciplinary history if they've ever been found responsible, say, it can definitely impact future opportunities. That's why it's incredibly important to take the necessary precautions in addressing misconduct when accused at a college campus and an experienced attorney-adviser can help best protect a student's rights and interests and can potentially help allow for the most favorable outcome.
