Title IX Advisor for College Professors in Colorado

Title IX of the Education Amendments is a federal civil rights law that prohibits gender-based discrimination against students attending higher education institutions. According to current federal guidelines, Colorado schools are obligated to promptly and fairly adjudicate cases involving gender discrimination.

Title IX has been applied in a broad range of intercollegiate issues throughout the years, but recently, it's most commonly referenced in cases that involve sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct is occurring at epidemic-like rates on college campuses. If you haven't been living under a rock the past couple years, you've read the stories and you've seen the statistics. In any and all of its forms - sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape, etc. - is categorized as gender discrimination. Therefore, when colleges receive word of an incident, colleges and universities generally conduct an investigation, hold a hearing, and enforce disciplinary actions if a perpetrator is found responsible for the alleged sexual misconduct. 

Because of pressure from the general public, survivors, and federal entities, schools cannot afford to make the mistake of ignoring or mismanaging cases. Allegations will not be taken lightly, and the stigma these allegations carry will undoubtedly affect all aspects of your life. This is why it's critical for college professors who have been accused of sexual misconduct to seek strong and experienced legal counsel.

Why You Need Legal Representation

The career damage suffered by professors, with or without tenure, can be devastating. While we believe wholeheartedly that sexual assault is unacceptable under any circumstance, we also believe that accused faculty must also be afforded civil rights and due process under the law.

Sometimes schools don't play by their own rules. In a swing of the pendulum, institutions that were once lax and arguably apathetic in their approach to adjudication are now aggressively pursuing complaints - all due to the Department of Education's letter that subtly threatened to strip funding in schools who ignored victims. Consequently, the repercussions for the falsely accused are life-altering. With the help of a seasoned Title IX defense attorney, college professors can keep their rights intact, hold the school accountable for any inequity, and achieve a fair and impartial trial.

Colorado Title IX Attorney 

Even the most organized school system isn't designed to play investigator, judge, jury, executor, and appellate court for sexual harassment or a felony crime like sexual assault. Higher education institutions are bound to make mistakes that can cost innocent people their livelihood, reputation, and even freedom.
