TITLE IX / GENDER EQUITY
The individual experiences of our team as student-athletes, coaches, athletics administrators, and university counsel has allowed us to bring a unique combination of knowledge, skill, and experience when assessing Title IX compliance at NCAA Division I, II and III institutions. In addition to completing comprehensive audits of college and university equity relating to participation, scholarships, and treatment, our attorneys have helped institutions work towards Title IX compliance through gender equity strategic planning and have provided legal guidance on issues such as adding or eliminating sports, roster management, and sport program tiering models.
