Understanding Title IX
This federal civil rights law forbids discrimination on the basis of sex

Title IX compels universities and colleges to create systems to investigate
reports of sexual violence, interview alleged witnesses, interrogate alleged
suspects, collect necessary evidence, and subject accused students to
disciplinary hearings. The consequences of those hearings can carry severe
life-altering changes for accused students, such as expulsion from school
and the order to carry a “sex offender” label.
Unfortunately, some accused students, who do not comprehend how to safeguard
their rights, end up suffering from permanent scars left on their records,
all of which may have been evaded had they hired
an experienced criminal defense attorney to defend their rights. For this reason, students accused of sexual violence
