  • Be denied benefits

  • Be excluded in participating in any programs
  • Suffer retaliation, such as pay decreases, job loss, demotion, or other harassment

How Education is Affected By Title IX

Title IX is a federal law that requires all universities, colleges, school districts and charter schools receiving federal funding to provide procedures for students to file complaints of sexual violence and sexual assault. An investigator employed by the school will often gather evidence and obtain witness statements and then make a finding as to whether a sexual assault occurred.

We represent students accused of Title IX sexual assault violations on the following campuses:

  • Northwest Community College
  • Copiah-Lincoln Community College
  • East Mississippi Community College
  • Hinds Community College
  • Holmes Community College
  • Mississippi Valley State University
  • Alcorn State University
  • Jackson State University
  • Mississippi University for Women
  • Delta State University
  • Belhaven College
  • Millsaps College
  • Mississippi College
  • University of Southern Mississippi
  • Mississippi State University
  • University of Mississippi (Ole Miss)

The standard of proof required to find that a sexual assault occurred is only a “preponderance of evidence” which is much lower than “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard used in a criminal trial. Failure to hire an experienced Title IX attorney can result in permanent marks on their educational record, expulsion from school or criminal charges. Schools take these investigations seriously and often times students are punished unjustly when they fail to hire an experienced Title IX attorney.
