Federal law now gives college students the right to an advisor of their choice to assist them in sexual misconduct proceedings at their higher education institutions. Many students and their parents are choosing to hire an attorney to fill this role.

The complaint processes at higher education institutions are complex and subject to detailed regulatory requirements. While colleges and universities are obligated to permit attorneys to serve as advisors, this does not guarantee a right of attorney advisors to serve as advocates. Institutions usually limit an advisor’s role, including restricting an advisor’s ability to speak on behalf of the student during the process.

So what is the role of an attorney serving as an advisor in these campus disciplinary proceedings? Join us for a two-hour training on representing students in sexual misconduct proceedings.
