Your rights as a college student

To college students, dorm rooms are typically viewed as one’s ‘home away from home’- a haven to escape the often chaotic and tiring life or academia. Despite this sentiment, universities don’t treat dorm rooms as homes, and prohibit certain conduct in a dorm room. Universities perform dorm room searches to endorse the rules. So, if university or local police has recently searched your dorm room, or if you are about to be subject to a search, it's important to know what to do (and what not to do)...stay calm, and know your student privacy rights.

How to find the right Title IX defense attorney for your case

Why would I need a Title IX defense attorney?

Under Title IX, you are protected from sex-based discrimination in education. This applies to all students, staff, and faculty, regardless of sex or gender identity. If you experience sex-based discrimination and feel that your school is not taking immediate and appropriate action to find a resolution, you are entitled to file a formal complaint with the U.S. Department of Education or to initiate a Title IX lawsuit against the school.
