Indiana Title IX Advisor

Students who are accused of sexual assault are required to undergo their school's Title IX policy in order to determine their guilt or innocence.

The Benefits of Selecting an Attorney as Your Title IX Advisor

You are given the freedom to choose any person you wish to be your advisor during Title IX processes. If you have yet to select a person to occupy this role, here are a few reasons why you should consider an attorney:

Preparation

Attorneys have trial experience and skills that will be extremely useful to you, as an accused student. You will be expected to make a statement, garner witnesses and provide evidence that coherently supports your account of the perceived sexual misconduct. An attorney will make sure you consistently maintain all the facts that you use in a statement, throughout the duration of Title IX processes. The reality is that people are going to be watching you very closely to catch any lie or discrepancy that is not in line with your original statements. An attorney can help you stay focused and prepared for any obstacle that your accuser, school authorities or a panel will hurl at you to incriminate you.

Accountability

If you are facing allegations of sexual misconduct, it's important that you understand that you are not granted the protections that someone in the criminal justice system has. Since schools handle these reported instances of these cases, they abide by a different set of guidelines that have often disadvantaged accused students. In the event that a school is mistreating you or defying you the right to a fair hearing, you may not know how to object these practices. Nevertheless, with the help of an attorney, your voice will be heard. Legal professionals have the authority to issue a “litigation hold” letter to schools to inform them that any discovered unfairness on their behalf could result in legal action. Schools are less likely to destroy evidence relevant to a respondent's case or keep crucial information from a respondent if they know that an attorney is watching their every move and will not hesitate to keep them accountable for their actions.

Confidentiality

Out of all of the individuals that you could possibly choose to assist you throughout these processes, none of them are less likely to disclose personal information than a lawyer. The majority of schools will attempt to recommend a school appointed Title IX advisor that supposedly has extensive training in the school's processes. On the surface, this recommendation seems ideal. However, what some school authorities fail to mention is that this individual is employed by the school. Therefore, their loyalty lies with their employer and not to you. At any point, the information that you relay to this advisor could be used against you in a hearing, and more importantly, in a criminal trial if charges are brought. You won't have to worry about an attorney turning on you. They share a common interest with you, which is to ensure your rights are protected and that you have a decent shot at defending yourself.
