Title IX Stalking Protecting Your Rights & Defending Your Future

Title IX Stalking Defense Attorney

St. Louis Defense Firm Fighting for Accused University Students

Title IX was implemented with good intentions: The federal government’s goal was to reduce the problem of university campus rape and sex-based discrimination, and in some cases, it has accomplished that. However, as often happens with rules outside of the justice system, there are many who have abused its power to make false or amplified allegations of sex crimes, ranging in gravity from stalking to sexual assault.

Because there are major consequences if the government suspects a university of improper Title IX investigations or hearings – including the loss of federal funding – universities are strongly incentivized to rush their hearings without due process.


While Title IX hearings do not always go hand-in-hand with criminal proceedings, they carry life-altering consequences of their own for the accused. If you’ve been accused of stalking, you need to know how to defend yourself, and understand why these claims can’t be taken lightly.

At The Hammer Law Firm, LLC, we’ve established a reputation for defending the innocent and the unfairly persecuted. Our St. Louis Title IX stalking defense attorneys can assist with protecting your educational career.

Consult with us today if you, your son, or your daughter has been accused of Title IX stalking on campus. We offer free consultationsand more than 60 years of combined experience. 

What Are Title IX Stalking Charges?

The National Center for Victims of Crime defines stalking as conduct that makes an individual fear for their safety, or for the safety of others.

As long as an individual can claim they have increased anxiety due to some form of perceived surveillance or monitoring, it can constitute stalking. Once it becomes about sexual discrimination, a university will classify it as Title IX-specific and investigate accordingly.

Some of the behaviors considered to be stalking under Title IX include:
