Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding. While it is primarily associated with sexual harassment and sexual assault, Title IX also covers a wide range of other types of misconduct, including dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and gender-based harassment.
Being accused of a Title IX violation can have severe consequences, not just for your education, but for your entire future.

That's where Title IX Guardian comes in. Our team of experienced Title IX defense attorneys is dedicated to protecting your rights and fighting for your future.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding. This includes all public and private schools, colleges, and universities that receive federal funding, as well as many other educational programs and activities.
Title IX applies to all students, faculty, and staff, and it covers a wide range of activities, including enrollment, financial aid, academics, extracurricular activities, housing, and employment. When it comes to allegations of sexual misconduct, Title IX requires schools to take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate and resolve the complaint.
Specific allegations of a Title IX violation can include anything from sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, and other types of gender-based harassment. And it is important to understand the specific allegations against you as soon as possible, so that you can build a defense strategy to minimize the potential consequences.
If you have been accused of a Title IX violation, the first step in the process will be an investigation by your school's Title IX office. The investigator will interview you, the person who made the complaint (the "complainant"), and any other relevant witnesses. They may also collect any physical or digital evidence that may be relevant to the case, such as text messages, emails, social media posts, or video footage.
It is crucial to understand that the investigation is not like a criminal trial, but it is an administrative process, which means that the school's own investigation will be used to determine whether a violation has occurred. They will not be as concerned with meeting the high legal standards that would be required in a criminal trial.
During the investigation process, it is vital to have a Title IX Guardian on your side, who can guide you through the process and help you to understand your rights and responsibilities. They will work to gather evidence that is favorable to your case and help you prepare for any interviews or meetings with the school's Title IX office.
The Title IX Guardian team will also review all evidence gathered in the investigation and identify any inconsistencies or weaknesses in the case against you, and that may be used to challenge the allegations against you. They also will also negotiate with the school's Title IX office to try to reach a resolution that is favorable to you.
In conclusion, a Title IX violation can have severe consequences on your education and your future, and it's important to understand the specific allegations and potential consequences.
