Legal Resources

The College does not offer legal advice or provide legal representation for parties or others involved in investigations. Individuals are not required to hire an attorney as part of the College’s processes, and the Title IX office does not advise individuals on whether they should seek legal representation. The decision to hire an attorney is your personal choice. If you are seeking legal representation, there are local resources that can assist you in connecting with attorneys in various specialties. Links to these resources are found below.

Please note: the College does not endorse any of these services and cannot make a referral to any particular attorney, including attorneys associated with these services.
