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

Student athletes in Oregon 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 what is troubling when they do not receive due process or independent support when charged with a disciplinary violation such as academic misconduct or Title IX sexual misconduct or are facing an administrative issue at their school, or before a conference or sports governing body.

Coaches, athletic directors, and NCAA administrators, for example, often do what's in the programs or their best interests and not what is in the student athletes' best interest. Student athletes must have an experienced attorney advocate guide them when a disciplinary or compliance issue arises and a student athlete is facing an investigation or administrative proceedings at their Oregon school, or before sports governing body.

Issues unique to student athletes can include sports-related dismissals or suspensions, inappropriate or abusive behavior by coaches, eligibility, hardship, or scholarship issues, transfer disputes, NCAA Administrative Appeals, and issues related to injuries concussions in sports litigation. You must take the necessary precautions before discussing any issues or concerns with the 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.
