Georgia Title IX Advisor

Developed and enacted in 1972, Title IX of the Education Amendments provides that “no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

This wide-reaching law has largely contributed in creating a more equitable atmosphere for students, staff and faculty in institutions that receive federal funding. It has had a particularly large impact on college and universities. From being used to deter the mistreatment of pregnant students to providing more options for women intercollegiate athletes, Title IX has been applied to and prohibited a large list of injustices. But in recent years, the law has been widely used in the context of sexual misconduct.

Sexual misconduct in its many forms - sexual harassment, sexual battery, sexual assault etc. - is considered gender-based discrimination in accordance with Title IX. This means that the federal government gives schools the responsibility to investigate, reprimand and assist in convicting students who are found guilty of these offenses. Students are allowed the option of choosing an advisor to accompany them while these processes are being carried out. Oftentimes, students have found that selecting the right advisor vastly influenced the overall outcome of a case, whether that be positive or negative. Previous cases reveal that students who choose a lawyer as their advisor increases the likelihood of getting a favorable result.

The Advantages of Choosing an Attorney as Your Title IX Advisor

If you have been accused of sexual misconduct and have yet to choose an advisor to assist you through Title IX processes, here are a few reasons why you should select an attorney to occupy this position:

Accountability

You, as an accused student, must understand that these accusations don't entitle you the rights that you would normally be granted by the criminal justice system. Since school's approach these cases by a different set of rules, the opportunity arises for institutions to apply the Title IX policy in a fashion that disadvantages you. The way a school operates and the processes that will be carried out when it is informed of perceived sexual misconduct is often located in detail in a school's code of conduct. You have access to this and can learn all about your school's processes, but chances are you won't be able to pinpoint how your school is violating your rights let alone figuring out how to properly object to your school's mistreatment towards you. A legal professional, however, will be able to take care of these matters for you, while reminding an institution that legal action could be pursued in the event that school continues to treat you unfairly.

Preparation

A legal professional will also be able to prepare you for the hearing, the investigation and whatever obstacles you'll face in the midst of these processes. With the help of a lawyer, you'll be able to make a statement and answer questions in a way that is consistent with your account of events and avoid pitfalls that could potentially incriminate you.
