If you're a student at West Chester 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 West Chester University, your school has specific policies as to how your case will be addressed and adjudicated. Understanding policies is an important key to success. The specific offense allege one part dictate which policies would apply. Will it be a Title IX sexual misconduct case, does it involve an academic integrity or an academic misconduct charge or is it a general disciplinary issue?
You also have to understand that West Chester University, as with all schools, is often in a rush to judgment, does not have an accused student's rights and interests in mind, and unfortunately, at times may not play by its own rules. That's why an experienced attorney advisor can help navigate the process and can help protect an accused student's rights and interests that potentially help allow for the most favorable outcome.
