Accused of Cheating at the University Level

On Behalf of | Aug 7, 2015 | Uncategorized

The student discipline lawyers in White Plains at Gould & Berg LLP, have had university students coming to us in both the public setting and the private setting who have been accused of cheating on an examination, or plagiarism and the question is, can a lawyer help you in this kind of situation? Parents should know that students have very few rights in that academic situation but what we have been able to do is examine the facts of the situation.  Sometimes, we have even been able to get the examination papers that give rise to the accusation of cheating, we speak to the student and try to direct them on how to approach the situation and in many cases we have been successful.  Although, the student appears by themselves with the academic authority, we have been successful in having the student be found not responsible for the cheating and the ability to proceed with their academic career.
