Creating a safe environment for its students to pursue an education is one of the central duties of a college or university. But, it is impossible to predict or protect against every possible risk scenario. When a sexual assault occurs and the college is accused of not having done enough to protect that student, our firm can offer an experienced and effective defense against liability.
We will examine all aspects of the claim against your institution for weaknesses. Was your staff properly trained and supervised to help prevent sexual assault? Are appropriate policies in place? We can build a persuasive case that your institution fulfilled its duty to its students.
Academic Discipline For Sexual Assault
Colleges and universities have to face a great degree of scrutiny when investigating and dealing with sexual assault. There can be tremendous public pressure to deliver particular outcomes. What is most important is that the college provides due process and adheres to its own rules when disciplining a student.
