If you're a student at St. John's University in New York 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. St. John's University will have specific policies as to how your case would be addressed and adjudicated. Understanding and successfully navigating these policies is important key to success. As to which policy will apply, it would in part be dependent upon the specific offense alleged. Is it a Title IX sexual misconduct case? Is it a matter of alleged academic integrity or an academic misconduct charge, or just a general disciplinary issue?
Also understanding that St. John's University, as with all schools, can unfortunately be in a rush to judgment and does not have an accused student's rights and interests in mind. You have to bear that in mind. That's why an experienced attorney-adviser can help navigate the process and can help protect an accused student's rights and interests to potentially help allow for the most favorable outcome.
