When do you need legal representation?

Those attending academic institutions, including elementary and secondary schools and post-secondary universities and colleges, may face a number of different disciplinary procedures resulting from different acts. This may include behavioural infractions or academic impropriety (plagiarism). In all cases, one should be represented by an experienced education lawyer before the relevant tribunal or hearing.

Often disciplinary proceedings are a result of these two reasons:

  1. Suspension/Expulsion Procedures
  2. Post-Secondary Academic Disciplinary Procedures

Regardless of your education matter, it is important that you have legal guidance, in order to make sure you present the best possible case for yourself and/or your child.

Hiring an experienced education lawyer can provide many advantages to litigating the matter yourself

First of all, a lawyer will assist with the many administrative requirements of defending any claims against your matter. Unlike the criminal law which has standardized legislation, post-secondary institutions will have different policies and procedures to deal with such offences. These can often be found in guidebooks or on the web site of the institution and can be super confusing.

An experienced education law firm will do the necessary research on the school’s legislation and make sure we have all your T’s crossed and I’s dotted before any board meeting. More importantly, a education lawyer will prepare all the right documents on your behalf, negotiate with the opposing party or parties’, as well as provide representation at both informal meetings and formal hearings.
