Uncertain About Your Rights at College? Hire a Student Rights Attorney.

College life is full of new experiences, academic challenges, and personal growth. But sometimes, unexpected complications can arise. These complications might involve: 

  • Disagreements with professors,  
  • Misunderstandings of college housing policy 
  • Accusations of student misconduct 

Whatever the issue, understanding your student rights is crucial. 

This is where student rights attorneys can help. Students’ rights attorneys specialize in higher education law and advocacy for students facing a variety of challenges within the college environment. Here at K Altman Law, we’re a team of experienced student rights attorneys dedicated to protecting your rights  

When do you need a student rights attorney? 

The need for a student rights attorney can arise in various situations. Here are some common areas where our expertise can benefit you: 

  • Title IX Cases: Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex. This includes sexual harassment, assault, and other forms of sexual misconduct. If you’ve been accused of sexual misconduct or believe you’ve been a victim, having a Title IX attorney on your side is critical. They can ensure the university follows proper procedures during investigations and advocate for your rights throughout the process. 
  • Education Law: Education law encompasses a broad spectrum of legal issues related to higher education. This might involve disagreements with professors regarding grades or academic integrity, challenges to Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for students with disabilities, or situations arising from discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, or disability. With their in-depth knowledge of education law, student rights attorneys can advise you on your options and provide legal representation if necessary.
  • Student Misconduct Defense: If you’ve been accused of academic dishonesty, plagiarism, or other forms of misconduct, a student rights attorney can be your advocate. They can help you understand the specific charges against you, develop a strong defense strategy, and ensure you receive a fair hearing according to the university’s disciplinary procedures.  
  • Free Speech: Colleges strive to foster an environment of open discussion and intellectual exploration. However, there may be instances where students feel their free speech rights are being violated. A student rights attorney can clarify your free speech rights within the college environment and guide you on how to effectively express your opinions while respecting the rights of others.
