Generally, many education providers maintain their own codes of conduct prohibiting acts of plagiarism. These codes may set out:
- What conduct is considered to be plagiarism;
- The manner in which an allegation of plagiarism is investigated;
- The disciplinary action available if there is a finding of plagiarism; and
- The means by which a decision can be appealed (if at all).
At university and other tertiary education providers, severe sanctions may be imposed if an act of plagiarism is found. This may include re-assessment, suspension and even expulsion. It is therefore important that legal advice is sought as to your rights and the investigation process, as soon as an allegation is raised.
If you have been suspected of plagiarism or have been the subject of disciplinary action arising from an act of plagiarism, we recommend you contact our office and arrange an appointment to see one of our Education & Schools Law Solicitors in our Sydney office. By appointment, we can also arrange a time for you to see one of our lawyers at a branch office. For a complete listing please see our "Locations" tab.
