What should a student athlete in Indiana do when facing a disciplinary violation or administrative issue at their college or university or with the NCAA? VIDEO

Student athletes in Indiana are uniquely situated at their college, university, or high school. Student athletes put their blood, sweat, and tears into their sport and their academics, and that is why it is troubling when they are treated unfairly or do not have independent support when charged with a disciplinary violation such as academic misconduct or Title IX sexual misconduct or facing an administrative issue involving their school, conference, or sports governing body. Coaches, athletic directors, and NCAA administrators, for example, often do what's in the program's or their best interests and not what is in the student athletes' best interests.

Student athletes must have an experienced attorney advocate help guide them when a disciplinary or compliance issue arises and the student athlete is facing an investigation or administrative proceedings with their Indiana school or sports governing body. Issues unique to student athletes can include sports related dismissals and suspensions, inappropriate or abusive behavior by coaches, eligibility hardship and scholarship issues, transfer disputes, NCAA administrative appeals, and issues related to injuries, concussions, and sports litigation.

You must take the necessary precautions before discussing any issues or concerns with your school or administrators. You must also understand your rights and responsibilities. An experienced attorney advisor will level the playing field and they should be in your corner from as early as possible in the process.
