Defending Yourself Against Misconduct Allegations

Facing Non-Academic Misconduct Allegations? We’re Here to Help You Fight Back.

Accused of misconduct at university? Preparing for a disciplinary hearing or appealing a decision can feel like a huge challenge. But you don’t have to face it alone. For over a decade, our team of barristers have been dedicated to defending students' rights and helping them navigate these stressful proceedings with confidence.

Expert Support for Your Disciplinary Hearing or Appeal

University misconduct allegations can be daunting. A finding of guilt can lead to severe consequences like expulsion, and can damage your future job prospects. The stakes are high, but with the right defence you can protect your future.

Why Choose Alpha Academic Appeals? 

  • Experienced Team: Our 14-member team of barristers has extensive experience defending students against a wide range of misconduct allegations. From inappropriate social media posts to serious charges like sexual misconduct, we know how to build a strong defense.
  • Specialised Expertise: Some accusations are quasi-criminal in nature, and we have specialists, including former Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) advocates and experts in disability discrimination and the Equality Act, to ensure you get the best possible defense.
  • Around-the-Clock Availability: We understand the urgency of your situation. Our team is available 7 days a week for confidential consultations and can often provide support at short notice.

Our motto reflects our commitment to stand by you, no matter how overwhelming the process feels. We know that facing a university’s disciplinary process can seem like David versus Goliath, but with decades of collective expertise on your side, you’ll be in the strongest position to fight back.

Real Stories, Real Results

Consider the experience of D, a final-year student from a London university, whose parents shared their relief after a successful appeal:

"Just to let you know that the appeal has been successful. D is allowed to repeat his final year. We feel immense relief after almost two months of agony. There was no help from the tutor, student union, or university, despite what they claimed on their website. Without you, we wouldn't have stood a chance. No money can pay for what you did for us. Thank you."
