In the vast majority of instances, schools do provide advisors to students who are accused of misconduct, whether it involves Title IX sexual misconduct, academic misconduct, or general disciplinary issues. The question a person should ask themselves is, if they're thinking about hiring an attorney, is something at stake? If the answer to that question is yes, then you need to have an attorney helping you. Nothing against advisors at a school, but if a student is accused of a Title IX sexual misconduct charge, such as nonconsensual sex or rape, a school advisor is not appropriate to what's involved. Too much is at stake. The same is true of an academic misconduct charge. So much is at stake for an accused student. The same would also be true of a general disciplinary charge.
If a student's found responsible, it can impact internship opportunities, graduate school, employment, professional licensing opportunities. A experienced attorney advisor will be solely dedicated to a client's interests independent of working for the school or being a part of the school. They are only looking out for their client's interest and trying to do everything within their power to achieve a favorable outcome.
