Though we’d all like to think that we live in a day and age where students can attend school without having to worry about unlawful discrimination, this is not always the case.

Federal Laws Prohibiting Discrimination Against Students

Fortunately, there are various federal laws in place that protect college and university students from discrimination. Those laws include:

  • Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX): Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in any educational program that receives federal funding.
  • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII): This law states that any program or activity receiving federal funding or financial assistance is prohibited from discriminating against students based on their national origin, color, or race.
  • Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 & Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act: These laws protect college and university students from discrimination on the basis of disability.

A violation of any of these laws can have lasting effects on a student, and our firm will do everything in our power to help ensure that your case is heard and that you are protected under the law.
