Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination (including discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity) at educational institutions that receive federal funds – which includes nearly all colleges and universities, both public and private. While you may associate Title IX with protections for students, it also protects faculty from sex discrimination and provides important protections for the accused as well. If you believe that your rights under Title IX have been violated, you need a knowledgeable Title IX lawyer. Contact Allen Harris to learn more about how we can help.
Do I Need a Title IX Lawyer?
Perhaps you are being sexually harassed by a colleague or being denied professional opportunities because of your sex or sexual orientation.

Whether you are the victim of discrimination, or you believe that you’ve been wrongfully accused, you need an attorney who fully understands Title IX and can effectively represent you through every step of the process ahead.
