As concerns for school safety have led to zero tolerance policies, the amount of school disciplinary proceedings has increased. This course provides an overview of how to represent a K-12 student at a disciplinary hearing. We review law, procedure and advocacy.
The presentation looks to answer the following questions:
Scott Limmer, an attorney practicing Criminal Defense, College Discipline and Special Education Law, discusses the public school disciplinary process, the law and the practical reality of representing a student at a hearing.
I. Understand the school’s procedures when a student is suspended
II. Learn how to achieve a successful result for your client
III. Effectively represent a student with a disability
