If you're a student at a college or University in Wisconsin, and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it's important to take the matter seriously. Academic misconduct charges come in various forms. Not citing properly on a paper, plagiarism, cheating on an exam. Whatever the charge may be, it's important that it be favorably resolved because if not, it can affect both present and future opportunities. Graduate school, internships, employment, professional licensing goals. All can be negatively impacted. Different schools use different resolution methods. It's important to understand yours. Does your school use an investigation, a hearing, a combination? What's your school's appeal process?
Understanding your school's resolution methods is critical, but also understanding that schools are often in a rush to judgment and are not mindful of a student's rights and interests also must be kept in mind. The help of an experienced attorney advisor can help navigate the process, can help protect the student's rights, and can potentially help allow for a more favorable outcome.
