Students often call me wanting to sue their college. The reasons vary. Some have been kicked out or expelled from their program. Other students have been suspended or put on probation and they cannot attend classes. Some students feel that the school lied to them to get them to enroll. After enrolling, the program was not what was promised. However, filing a lawsuit against anyone, especially a college, can be pricey.
Suing a college is expensive, is there a more affordable alternative for students who can’t afford to sue a school?
The answer: Yes.
I strongly recommend a Demand Letter – I have had great success in getting students what they deserve using a demand letter. The fees are cheap and many times get the student what they want from the school without suing.
Sometimes suing a public school or private school is necessary and letters will not get the job done. But explore your options first. Make sure whatever lawyer you speak to goes through all of your options - not just the most expensive ones.
