Title IX Complaints Filed Against Harvard Law School

Wendy J. Murphy

Wendy J. Murphy, a professor at the New England School of Law, has filed multiple Title IX complaints with the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education against Harvard Law School on behalf of a woman student at the school. The complaints allege that the law school does not promptly investigate charges of sexual assault or harassment and fails to provide victims with “clear timeframes” for resolving cases. The complaint also says Harvard Law School requires victims to prove their case by the “clear and convincing evidence” standard rather than the lower standard of proof called “preponderance of evidence.”
