North Dakota Students Now Have the Right to an Attorney

The University of North Dakota may be full of tension as the administration faces a second no-confidence vote tonight, but students accused of wrongdoing in the state higher education system now have a fairer system to go through.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple signed a bill (previously covered by The College Fix) giving students the right to pay for a lawyer at their own expense in “non-academic suspension and expulsion hearings,” the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education says.

The overwhelming vote totals – unanimous in the House and a single dissenting vote in the Senate – should convince administrators and campus activists that such obvious tilting of the field against accused students won’t be tolerated in the real world.
