New Jersey is home to more than 250,000 college students and over 25 major colleges and universities, including Rutgers - The State University of New Jersey, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Seton Hall, and the Ivy League Princeton University.
When it comes to student disciplinary matters, many colleges and universities welcome the presence of an attorney on behalf of an accused student during disciplinary proceedings and at disciplinary hearings. Some schools prefer to keep proceedings and hearings between the accused student and university personnel, however, an attorney's assistance behind the scenes can greatly help students in these matters.
One thing shared by all New Jersey colleges and universities is the seriousness of disciplinary proceedings. Most schools will initiate disciplinary proceedings against a student within mere days following an incident, giving students and parents little time to prepare, or even realize the consequences of an unfavorable outcome.
If you or your student is facing disciplinary action from a New Jersey college or university, you will want an attorney who knows how to handle code of conduct disciplinary violations, Title IX sexual misconduct offenses, and academic misconduct charges, depending on the nature of your case. Many deadlines for hearings and appeals are only a matter of days, so time is of the essence. Don't hesitate! Contact Attorney Joseph D. Lento today, and get the help you need.
