Having to go the Dean of Students office at the University can be a fairly scary time for any student who is facing disciplinary action for alleged misconduct. Many students don’t realize that alleged criminal conduct that occurs outside of the grounds of the University may also be a ground for disciplinary action by the Dean of Students.
A UMass disciplinary hearing can have a wide range of consequences ranging from an agreement to remain in good standing throughout the rest of the school year or in the worst case scenario, an expulsion from the University. Although there is no promise that having an attorney by your side will get you your desired outcome, it can lower the risk of a drastic punishment like an expulsion or academic suspension being imposed by having that attorney explain your version of events to the Dean of Students as well as highlighting any past or future corrective action that may need to take place so that another incident is not likely to happen again.
