I just got an under age drinking ticket and the court date that it is planned I'll be out of the country. Do I need a lawyer
Response 1: Yes, you do. You would need the services of a local criminal defense Attorney.
and can my lawyer go to court without me?
Response 2: No. You need to be present for the hearing.
Also my university has a student legal clinic which I was thinking of going without my parents knowing of the citation. Is it a good idea?
