Student Misconduct Legal Council

Three institutions of higher learning— Florida State University, Florida A&M University and Tallahassee Community College — bring 70,000 students to the Tallahassee community.

Unfortunately, some of these young adults will find themselves in legal trouble. Even though a criminal case may be settled — or even dismissed — students can face a second round of disciplinary hearings through their college, with a lower burden of proof than a court proceeding.

Relatively minor crimes can have serious repercussions. It is essential to be aware of the institution’s disciplinary rules and processes, and to be well represented. The consequences — loss of scholarships and campus housing, probation, suspension and expulsion — can derail a young person’s education … and their future.

We are familiar with these systems and can represent students throughout the disciplinary process.
