What to Expect at a Hearing
An Administrative, Disciplinary, or Due Process hearing is an opportunity for you to tell your side of the story. Most often, it is a mini trial, but you don't have the same rights as criminal defendants. Though frequently described as informal, the outcome of these hearings can have a huge impact on your academic pursuits. The standard of proof is not "beyond a reasonable doubt," and you can be found guilty with little evidence against you.
With over 15 years of litigation experience, Meredith knows how to ensure you are fully prepared for the hearing process. Hearings are conducted by trained professionals who are employed to protect the college or university they work for. You need an advocate on your side who can level the playing field.
Questions? You’re covered.
If you or your child is facing allegations of misconduct, don't navigate this process alone. You need an experienced litigator with a proven track record. Call Meredith Hubbard today!
