Student Misconduct/ Academic Dishonesty


Christian, Ashin & Brown, P.C. represents students before colleges’ and universities’ Judicial Boards. It is imperative that the student be represented by an attorney in order to properly prepare for one of these hearings.

Our lawyers are experienced in preparing and defending students at the University of Maryland College Park and other universities and colleges in any form of judicial board hearings involving student misconduct, academic honor code or residence hall violations. These cases may involve situations where you have been charged with a crime on or near your college campus.

Students may be facing academic penalties as well as criminal charges. All college students are expected to comply with their specific code of student conduct that is administered by their school’s Office of Student Conduct. Violating these codes can result in serious academic penalties, including failure of an academic course, termination of housing contract, probation, suspension, or expulsion.

If you are a student or a parent of a student who is facing disciplinary charges or an academic dishonesty charge, contact us at 301-277-9171 or email us to arrange a free consultation discuss options to minimize both criminal and academic penalties.
