Education Lawyer Serving Medical & Other Professional Students, Graduate Students and Undergraduate Students
Education is a vital component in today’s world. The learning experience shapes the future lives of students, their families and their communities. Education is core to the American way of life. But, issues that threaten a student’s education experience can be especially problematic and impactful when they occur at institutions of higher learning such as colleges, universities and professional schools. The threat of dismissal, program access or other school issue can impair the student’s future quality of life and place potential earning power and career path opportunities in jeopardy. Education Litigation Group serves medical students, professional students, graduate students, and undergraduate students.
Dismissals, Suspensions, Disability Discrimination, and Due Process
