When appealing your child's university sexual misconduct case in Nebraska, it's important to familiarize yourself with the college or university's policies on appeals. Different schools are going to have different appeal processes. For example, at some schools, the appeal process would take place after a finding of responsibility is made and or sanctions are imposed after an investigation or a hearing. At other schools, the appeal process will start the hearing process.
It's important to understand this aspect of the appeal process. It's also important to understand your college or university's allowable grounds or allowable basis for an appeal. For example, disproportionate sanction, new evidence reasonably not available at an earlier point in the process, procedural error, or defect. Most schools have similar allowable grounds, with certain exceptions.
It's important to meet your school's allowable grounds. It's also important to meet the school's appeal deadline. You should never go through the disciplinary process on your own. Having an experienced attorney advisor is going to be your son or daughter's best ally if they find themselves in the position that is necessary to appeal a final responsibility and/or sanction of their college or university.
