Education, Trauma, and Title IX


Location: Via Zoom

The Education Law Forum and Health Law Society invite you to a presentation "Education, Trauma, and Title IX" by Professor Jeannie Suk Gersen of Harvard Law School. Join us on Zoom on Monday, March 15 at 5 p.m.  The talk will be followed by Q&A. Feel free to submit questions ahead of time.

Gersen is an expert on the law of sexual assault and harassment. She describes herself as a feminist law professor and her views on our topic are nuanced and complex. The Chronicle of Higher Education wrote of her, "She has staked out a position at once conventional and embattled. She shares #MeToo’s goal of ending the impunity surrounding sexual assault. But she remains committed to the principles of due process, presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair hearing." Gersen is the first Asian-American woman and second woman of color to receive tenure at Harvard Law School. She served as a law clerk to Justice David Souter on the United States Supreme Court and prosecuted domestic violence in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
