Overview

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:

  • Does the client need an attorney?
  • How far does a school’s jurisdiction reach?
  • Are you entitled to discovery?
  • What is the role of the attorney in this type of proceeding? 
  • What if your client has a disability?

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.
