Title IX Implications

A Big Problem for Students

A student found “responsible” for a sexual assault by a school faces severe consequences.

Suspension or expulsion is just the beginning.

The school may place a notation on transcripts, which would inform any future graduate school or employer of the incident. In addition, the discipline may have to be disclosed on professional applications (like for the bar exam or a medical license) or background checks for a security clearance.

Joshua Engel on Sexual Assault Issues

The school may place a notation on transcripts, which would inform any future graduate school or employer of the incident. In addition, the discipline may have to be disclosed on professional applications (like for the bar exam or a medical license) or background checks for a security clearance.

Joshua Adam Engel has represented and advised students in multiple states. Engel has been recognized as one of the leading attorneys in this field. He recently gave a presentation at a nationwide symposium on this issue in Washington, DC. He combines experience in three important fields: civil rights, school disciplinary proceedings and criminal defense.

Engel joined 19 attorneys from around the country to send a letter to key Senate sponsors of the Campus Accountability and Safety Act (S. 2692), expressing their concern that the proposed legislation does not adequately protect the due process rights of students who have been accused of a campus sexual assault.
