Milwaukee Attorneys Representing University Students

Lawyers Helping Students Address Equality, Licensing Rights, and Disciplinary Issues in Milwaukee, WI

College students may encounter a variety of legal issues as they pursue higher education. In some cases, students may need to address matters related to equality or discrimination, or they may face discipline or criminal charges related to incidents that occurred on or off campus. Student athletes may also need to address licensing issues and endorsements. These matters can be complicated and confusing, and students will need to navigate university policies as well as civil or criminal laws that apply in their unique situations.

Students can ensure that they are addressing these matters properly by working with an attorney who has a strong understanding of the laws and policies that affect them. At Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP, our attorneys are equipped to handle a wide variety of legal matters, and we are prepared to work with students and their families to determine their best legal options. Whether you are concerned about discrimination, discipline, or other issues, we can advise you of your rights and provide you with representation to help you resolve these matters successfully.

Legal Matters Affecting University Students

We work with college students to address legal issues involving:

  • Title IX and discrimination - Title IX is a federal statute that prohibits discrimination in educational institutions on the basis of sex. Any institution that receives funding from the federal government is required to operate educational programs and activities in a way that treats all students equally. Title IX protects against discrimination based on a person's sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We work with students who have both experienced discrimination or are accused of violating Title IX themselves. Typical Title IX issues are related to admissions, recruitment, financial aid, participation in athletics or other activities, harassment, employment, or other areas, and we fight to protect these students' rights and ensure that they receive equal treatment.
  • Licensing NIL rights and endorsements for student athletes - In many cases, universities gain significant benefits from the participation of students in athletic programs. The benefits that student athletes can receive had traditionally been limited to scholarships and other forms of financial aid. However, the NCAA now allows student athletes to benefit from the use of their name, image, and likeness. These athletes may be able to receive endorsements and sponsorships, but when doing so, they will need to follow specific rules and abide by the laws in the state where their school is located. Our attorneys can assist student athletes with matters involving NIL licensing rights for their name, image, and likeness, ensuring that they will be properly compensated while following the applicable laws and policies.
  • Disciplinary matters and criminal cases - Students may face discipline for violating a school's policies, including in cases involving accusations of cheating, hazing, or sexual misconduct. If a student is accused of violating the law, they may not only face administrative discipline, but they face criminal charges as well. Our lawyers provide representation for students in cases involving allegations of sexual assault, other forms of assault, drug possession or distribution, DUI/OWI, and other criminal charges. We represent students both in disciplinary actions and criminal cases, and we work to help students continue their education with as little interruption as possible.
