Women Lawyers on Guard joins Amicus Brief Submitted to U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Brown v. Arizona

April 4, 2022

Women Lawyers on Guard joined the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) and 30 other advocacy organizations in filing an amicus brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Brown v. Arizona on Monday, April 4. A short summary is available here, as well as a blog here. 


Under Title IX schools should not be allowed to ignore sexual harassment, including sexual assault, dating abuse, and other violence, just because it occurs off-campus.  A very high number of sexual harassment against college students occurs off-campus, and its impact can be significant and harmful on a survivor’s access to education regardless of where they were assaulted.
