Understanding the Title IX Process in General

Title IX aims to prevent sex discrimination in education, such as inequitable resources and opportunities as well as sexual harassment and violence. Federal education funds come with requirements to comply with Title IX, and even private education institutions comply if involved in federal programs or grants or on a voluntary basis.

To comply with Title IX, schools create an investigation and disciplinary process for violations by students related to sexual harassment, discrimination, or violence. These procedures include fact-finding and review by a small panel and typically a hearing for a student to defend themselves. A final decision then comes from the panel with some opportunity to appeal.

However, this investigation and hearing process does not work like an investigation by the police or like a criminal Trial, and procedures vary by school. Students do not receive the right to have an Attorney present and able to represent them, but they can still benefit from working with a Title IX Lawyers and having them present during the process and hearing. Schools do allow an Attorney to act as an advisor to be involved in every stage of the proceedings to support the Student.
