What should I do if I am accused of academic misconduct at a college or university in New Mexico?

If you're a student at a college or a university in New Mexico and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it needs to be taken seriously. Academic misconduct charges come in various forms. Is it plagiarism, not citing properly on a paper, cheating on an exam? Whatever the charge may be, it needs to be favorably resolved, because it can impact both the present and future opportunities. Graduate school, internships, employment, professional licensing opportunities can all be negatively impacted. Different schools use different resolution methods. Some schools 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 are not mindful of a student's rights and interests, it's critical to have the help of an experienced attorney advisor help navigate the process, protect the student's rights, because they can potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
