Our client came to us a second time, having won his previous case against the University, which involved allegations of plagiarism and failure to make reasonable adjustments to the exam process due to his disability. Following a second allegation of plagiarism on the same essays our client, again, came to us for assistance. Our client, did not receive the necessary support following the previous allegation as the University failed to provide him with adequate guidance on plagiarism.
We lodged submissions on behalf of our client putting across his case as strongly as possible. We stated that the University had failed in their duty to assist our client to understand where he had previously gone wrong. His lack of understanding was clear form his repeat mistake. Our client attended an Academic Misconduct Hearing. We instructed a barrister to attend the hearing with him. Our client received only a warning as a result of this second plagiarism allegation on the same work. Our client is now working towards submitting his essays having received the right support.
