Can students be represented by legal counsel during the University judicial process?
In general, no. The judicial process at the University of Delaware involves an administrative hearing. It is not a criminal or civil proceeding. Students who request that their case be considered at a hearing may be assisted by a judicial advisor from the University community. Students who are charged with violations that constitute a felony in law may be accompanied to the judicial hearing by legal counsel, but the attorney’s involvement in the hearing will be limited to advising the the accused student on whether to answer a question posed during the hearing.
