What should I do if I am accused of misconduct at Rutgers University-Newark?

 

If you're a student at the Newark Campus of Rutgers University and you're accused of misconduct, you should take the necessary precautions before taking any steps with the school. Do not speak to the school or others without taking these necessary precautions, too much is at stake. You have to understand, for one, how Rutgers will address your case.

It will depend on the specific misconduct alleged. Is it Title IX sexual misconduct? Is it an academic misconduct, or academic integrity charged, or is it a general disciplinary issue? Rutgers Newark has specific policies as to how each offense would be addressed and adjudicated. You also have to understand that Rutgers Newark, as with all schools, is often in a rush to judgment and does not have an accused student's interest and rights in mind. Having an experienced attorney advisor will help you through the disciplinary process. It can, will help and should take place as early as possible in the process.
