  • Stalking
  • Conduct that is unwelcome, persistent, and offensive, and prevents a person from equal access to a program or activity in education.

Title IX Defense Attorney Explains: Potential Consequences of a Title IX Violation

Title IX laws apply to colleges and universities that receive federal funding. These institutions are under pressure to demonstrate that they take allegations of sexual assault and harassment seriously, and as such, they have a tendency to side with the alleged victim.

A student found guilty of Title IX-covered offenses, could be:

  • Suspended or expelled from school
  • Subject to a tarnished permanent record
  • Ineligible for scholarships
  • Removed from athletics
  • Rejected from other colleges or universities

If the school affords the student a disciplinary hearing, they have the opportunity to present their side of the story and challenge the accusations. With so much at stake in these matters, it’s important that the student have a lawyer on their side who can advise them about how to proceed. Our team knows how to conduct thorough investigations of these types of cases and defend against allegations.
