Student Disciplinary Law
Akron Students Rights Lawyer
If you or your student has been suspended or expelled from their school,
you must gain an understanding of the laws and procedures associated with
the specific circumstance. In today's society, obtaining a degree
is an essential element to standing out in the world and becoming successful.
Many students are held back from achieving this goal because of a disciplinary
sanction from a violation of a school principle. Do not hesitate to speak with the
Akron criminal defense attorney at my firm if you require legal guidance through a suspension or expulsion.
Understanding Disciplinary Laws in Ohio
Suspension refers to the temporary removal of a student from his or her
school for a violation of a school policy or rule. Typically, suspensions
are imposed by the school principal and usually last for a maximum of
10 days. Expulsions are more permanent removals and are consequences of
serious school policies. Disciplinary codes at each school may vary from
one another. Under Ohio law, however, expulsions can last up to a maximum
of one year. Your situation may require legal representation from an experienced lawyer.
Defense for Students
In any level of schooling, a child, teenager, or young adult can face allegations
of a school code violation which can result in a negative impact to his
or her education. In many cases, disciplinary procedures are confusing
and counter-intuitive. As your Akron criminal lawyer, I can guide you
through the red tape, handle administration, and help you
prepare for the hearing. During each step of your case, I can be your legal guide to prepare,
support, and defend you. As you seek a clean disciplinary record for yourself
