WOU Deputy Vice Chancellor (Strategy, Planning and Continuing Education), Mr. U K Menon, presented an overview of the legal requirements on student discipline and procedures, and a practical guide on drafting student disciplinary rules. He also spoke on the importance of student counselling, and how counselling can help tackle student indiscipline.

Meanwhile Paul Linus Andrews, Head of the Law Department, School of Business, Sunway University College looked into the general legal principles surrounding student discipline and disciplinary procedures. He highlighted the key features of natural justice and procedural fairness ‚Äď the right to a fair hearing; the rule against bias; the principle of legitimate expectation; and the right to appeal.

Andrews points out a few important principles.

Andrews described the right to a fair hearing and the rule against bias as the ‚Äútwin pillars that support natural justice‚ÄĚ.

Menon and Andrews then conducted a joint session on internal disciplinary proceedings, the requirements under the Private Higher Educational Act 1996 including the June 2009 amendments, and the student’s right to appeal. The amendments to the student disciplinary procedures in private colleges and universities have made it necessary for institutions to review their internal policies and procedures to ensure compliance to law.
