I also handle residency cases. In these cases, a school district charges that a student does not live within the district's boundaries.
School law includes academic discipline, academic dishonesty and residency hearings. I have represented families throughout the Chicago area when their child has been threatened with suspension or expulsion for charges such as possessing a weapon or selling drugs. I have also represented college and university students in Illinois on charges of academic dishonesty such as cheating and plagiarism. These cases can be difficult since school hearings are often biased against the student. It is important, however, to set up a factual record at the school level in case a court appeal becomes necessary.
