MALES BEWARE: Major Blow to Due Process @University of Maryland

The University of Maryland Senate recently voted to lower the standard of evidence in student misconduct hearings while simultaneously limiting students’ access to attorneys. Edward Priola, a UMD faculty Senator who voted against the measure, said he has deep reservations about the changes, which he called “a systematic dismantling, from my observation, of due process and the civil rights of students.” Priola says that the SCC sees attorneys as “scary to the students who are sitting on the board of discipline,” and does not want the students who are participating in those disciplinary hearings to be intimidated. By Adam Sabes
