Elliot Abrams quoted in Lawyers Weekly article about representing students accused of university misconduct
In a post entitled “Student Lawyering,” David Donovan of North Carolina Lawyers Weekly wrote about a new North Carolina law that gives students accused of serious misconduct by a university the right to hire a lawyer to represent them at the university proceeding.
One lawyer was quoted as saying that the new law “will mean that students will have a chance to truly present their case.”
Elliot Abrams, an attorney with Cheshire Parker who has helped a number of students with these types of cases in the past, was quoted saying that the new law “will hopefully restore a level of neutrality and fairness to a system that had become dominated by political pressures unrelated to the guilt or innocence of the accused.”
