What should I do if I am accused of misconduct at Duquesne University?

If you're a student at Duquesne University and you're accused of misconduct, you should not speak to the school or others without taking the necessary precautions. Too much is at stake. At Duquesne University, understanding the policy that will apply to your case is an important key to success. The policy that would apply is going to be dependent in part on the specific offense alleged.

Will it be a Title IX sexual misconduct case? Does the case involve academic integrity or an academic misconduct charge or is it a general disciplinary issue? Understanding and successfully navigating the process is key. Also, understanding that Duquesne, as with all schools, is often in a rush to judgment and does not have an accused student's rights and interests in mind, and that's why an experienced attorney-adviser can help navigate the process, can help protect an accused student's rights and interests and can potentially help allow for the most favorable outcome.
