What is the role of the school's attorney in a Title IX hearing?

One additional reason why a student should have an experienced attorney-advisor in their corner is because the school has an attorney involved throughout the process from the start to the finish. Many people may not recognize this, but the school's attorney is often involved in a behind the scenes capacity advising this tool each step of the way.

In some instances, the school's attorney may reveal themselves, depending on what's taking place specifically. I regularly engage with school attorneys to negotiate outcomes, to express concerns, to enforce my client's rights.

The school has an attorney looking out for its interests, an accused party, or a party involved in the Title IX case, should have an experienced attorney-advisor in their corner also, looking out for their rights and interests.
