CIF Appeals

Southern California Lawyers

During a CIF (California Interscholastic Federation) Appeal Hearing, you need an expert attorney in your corner. There are many aspects involved in these hearings, such as:

  • The informal rules of evidence. Any relevant evidence, including hearsay evidence, shall be admitted.
  • There may be a hearing panel (multiple judges), or a single hearing officer.
  • The hearing time limit.
  • Opening statements, witnesses, exhibits, and closing statements.
  • Interpretation of CIF rules.

Although CIF had up to 15 working days to rule on our appeal, it only took 2 days to clear her for basketball. We are very excited and grateful that at the end, justice did prevail…”
