What Are Title IX Actions?
Title IX is a federal law that requires certain schools to develop and uphold procedures for handling complaints of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. A Title IX action refers to the disciplinary process for addressing those complaints. It also refers to court proceedings involving Title IX cases.
Students accused of sexual misconduct can face Title IX actions even if they’re never arrested or charged with an offense.
You Have Rights In Title IX Proceedings
Title IX guarantees students “due process” rights – which means that you must be treated fairly and afforded the opportunity to defend yourself. Your rights include:
- The right to a neutral investigation by a competent investigator
- The right to know the allegations against you
- The right to an attorney
- The right to a fair hearing before a neutral decision-maker
- The right to appeal the decision
We can ensure that your rights are upheld at all stages of the disciplinary process.
