Sexual Assault or Misconduct at University

Every academic year in the UK, there are hundreds of allegations of sexual misconduct in universities.  In 2018-2019, there were 1,436 allegations of sexual harrassment or sexual violence against university students.

At Alpha Academic Appeals, we have barristers with years of experience of both prosecuting and defending cases of sexual misconduct, including rape and other serious sexual offences.   Beyond the university system, we also have experience of advocacy in the Magistrates’ and Crown Courts.   Some of our barristers have worked as in-house lawyers for the Crown Prosecution Service and appeared on national media as experts in sexual misconduct issues.

We can help students navigate the university’s complaints or appeals process, as well as the accompanying investigations.

Our aim is to provide high quality advice and legal representation for students who find themselves in this unfortunate situation and to reduce the extreme stress that so often accompanies sexual misconduct procedures at university.
