If you're a student at a college or university in Nevada, and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it's important to take the matters seriously. Academic misconduct charges can come in various forms: plagiarism, not citing properly, cheating on an exam. Whatever the charges may be, it needs to be favorably resolved because it can impact both a student at the present time and also in the future. Graduate School, internships, employment, professional licensing opportunities can all be impacted. Different schools use different resolution methods, some use an investigation, some a hearing, some a combination. What's your school's appeal process?
Because schools are, unfortunately, often in a rush to judgment and not mindful of a student's rights and interests, it's critical to understand that it's also important to have an experienced attorney-adviser help through the process. They can help navigate, they can protect the student's rights, and they can potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
