In order for a University disciplinary proceeding to be legally effective, the parties participating in this proceeding must be both competent and free from physical coercion, is this correct?

    Answered . Hello. Please seek private attorney counsel for the detailed legal advice of which you are in need. It is unwise to post any details of the issues of a particular university disciplinary proceeding on a public website. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will confer initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.

    Answered . That is a difficult question to answer, and depends on many factors. What kind of disciplinary hearing? Who were the parties involved? How are you defining "competence"? How are you defining "coercion"?

    Presumably, a disciplinary hearing will have negative consequences. If you were the person disciplined, you should contact an employment law attorney to discuss your options. It is possible that you have some rights that can be exercised, but you may have a short time frame to do so.
