Disciplinary Procedures for Michigan College Students

Criminal Defense Attorneys in Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids & Paw Paw

When students at a college are accused of a criminal offense or of violating the institution's code of conduct, officials can initiate disciplinary procedures. Protecting the rights of students during these procedures can be just as important as properly handling any related criminal charges.

At Willis Law, we help students combat college disciplinary actions and make sure that disciplinary procedures do not ruin their academic career. We represent students at Western Michigan University and other colleges and universities in Michigan.

It is important to realize that college disciplinary procedures do not necessarily replace the criminal justice system. Just because a case is pursued against you within your college or university does not mean you are safe from criminal charges. You need a knowledgeable lawyer to make sure you understand your rights.

Disciplinary Hearing Attorneys

Hearings before disciplinary boards are a crucial step. Colleges and universities can pursue disciplinary action tied to a variety of alleged offenses, including:

Our goal is to achieve a positive solution to the issue at hand and to minimize the long-term impact of the arrest or disciplinary procedure. We will work hard to protect your child's promising future.
