I used CourseWorks and am accused of academic misconduct. What can I do?

If you're a student and you've used Courseworks and you're accused of an academic misconduct issue, the specific circumstances at hand would have to be considered. Did you, in fact, do something improper or was it say a misunderstanding on the professor's part or the school's part? Was it a honest mistake? A good faith mistake? The specific circumstances at hand definitely have to be analyzed. If it was a good-faith mistake, or if there's some misunderstanding as to the circumstances, unfortunately, it cannot depend on the school to do the right thing or to be receptive to such a claim.

It takes a dedicated effort to be cleared of an academic misconduct issue or academic misconduct charge. Because you can't depend on the school to do the right thing, you have to take the necessary precautions. You have to prepare the appropriate response before you engage with the school. Having an experience attorney-advisor will help you best understand and navigate the process and they can help you respond best to an allegation involving the use of Courseworks.
