Student Disciplinary Representation Lawyers
According to North Carolina state law, any public university student facing disciplinary action through the university may now hire an attorney to assist throughout the disciplinary process as needed. In the past, students have only been allowed by law to turn to a lawyer for general advice in matters involving campus discipline, but attorneys have never been able to present evidence, cross examine witnesses or even be directly present with a student in campus hearings.
Thanks to the new state law, students may now hire attorneys to be involved in every step of the disciplinary process when it applies to student conduct matters, including sexual assault, hazing and underage alcohol use. In cases that deal with academic misconduct or in situations involving an entirely student-run hearing, attorneys will not be allowed to assist the student involved.

Hardison Wood is pleased to offer student disciplinary representation services to any public university students in the Triangle area looking to hire an attorney to assist them in their disciplinary case on campus.
