If you are an accused student facing a sexual misconduct hearing at a high school, college or university or the parent of a child who has been accused of date rape, harassment or assault, it is important to consult with a title ix lawyer. During these sensitive and highly complex proceedings, the decisions made by university administrators can have serious implications for your educational career as well as future employment. If you believe that your rights are being violated, or there are any issues with bias or failure to follow published procedures, a title ix attorney can make sure that objections are recorded in the official record and will be brought up for consideration on appeal.

In addition to filing a lawsuit, a title ix lawyer can also assist you in preparing for a possible hearing by providing you with sample questions for the accuser and his or her witnesses as well as assisting you to prepare statements that will be used against the accuser at the hearing.
