Students at all levels of study, be it K-12, undergraduate, or graduate levels, can find themselves getting into trouble with school authorities. From relatively minor academic issues such as cheating, plagiarism, or issues with academic progression to comparatively more serious behavioral misconduct issues such as assault or bullying, students can be held responsible for many forms of misconduct.
However, it isn't always the student's fault. Sometimes school authorities make mistakes in identifying the student responsible for misbehavior or apply their rules and policies in an unfair manner, targeting a particular student.
Whether the student is at fault or not, consulting with an education lawyer always helps. Experienced education lawyer Joseph D. Lento, who has over 20 years of experience in student defense, can help lessen or get rid of the charges against your student and help protect their academic record.
Schools can be very strict about misconduct and other issues involving education law and may dole out punishments such as a warning, suspension, or dismissal.
The Lento Law Firm and Attorney-advisor Lento can help ensure your student does not face undue negative consequences and are available for your student's defense across the Des Moines-West Des Moines metropolitan area.
