How can I help my child prepare for a university sexual misconduct hearing in New Hampshire? VIDEO

Preparing your child for a university sexual misconduct hearing in New Hampshire needs to take place as early as possible in the process. As soon as the college or university notifies the accused student of the allegations against him or her, you have to bear in mind the prospect of a hearing. When the accused student responds to the allegations, it needs to be done as effectively as possible, because it will be challenged during the course of the hearing process.

Anything that would support the accused student's version of events, the respondent that is, anything that would support their version of events would need to be presented to the school with the applicable time. Witnesses will need to be presented, witness statements, documentary evidence, expert reports may need to be obtained. Prior to the hearing taking place, an investigation report will be prepared and will be presented to the hearing panel.

The hearing panel will have a good understanding of the case by reviewing the investigation report before the hearing even takes place. That's why it's critical that the investigation report be as strong as possible. An opening statement, a closing statement, questions for the witnesses, the complainant, the respondent, cross-examination questions, they would all need to be prepared for purpose of the hearing itself. There also has to be accountability and oversight for the hearing process and the hearing panel.

An experienced attorney advisor will be your son or daughter's best ally if they're preparing for and facing a university sexual misconduct hearing.
