Cornell Arrests, Disciplinary Hearing & Title IX Misconduct Investigations

Founded in 1865, Cornell University is an Ivy League University located in Ithaca, New York. Cornell is organized into seven distinct colleges as well as seven separate graduate schools at the main campus in upstate New York. Each of these colleges is more or less autonomous, with their own admission standards and programs. The University also has a medical satellite campus in New York City on Roosevelt Island. It's worth noting that three of the seven undergraduate colleges and one of the seven graduate programs are state-supported through the State University of New York (SUNY) system.

Like all universities, Cornell has various policies and procedures under Title IX relating to sexual misconduct, bias, harassment, and various other forms of discrimination. At Cornell University, this is referred to as Policy 6.4, entitled “Prohibited Bias, Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual and Related Misconduct.” Simply, no student or faculty member should have any misgivings or misunderstandings. Cornell University publicly states that it complies with applicable state and federal statutes, including Title IX of the Federal Higher Education Amendment of 1972. This statute prohibits such discrimination on the basis of sex in educational environments, programs or activity receiving federal financial aid. If you run afoul of this regulation or are the victim of a Title IX infraction at Cornell University, to best protect your status or ensure your abuser is held accountable, securing the counsel of an experienced Title IX lawyer or a Cornell University Title IX attorney is critical.

Additionally, theUniversity has a SHARE program and website that provides information and services to it’s community regarding sexual harassment, discrimination and other forms of violence.

Client Reviews
... I was facing a class B felony and potentially tens of thousands in fines and some legit jail time and after hiring Jeremy Saland he obviously struck enough fear into the prosecutors with his sheer litigation might that it was knocked down to a petty misdemeanor and after a few sheckles and a handful of counseling sessions, I will no longer have a criminal record. The offices of Saland Law are the Shaq and Kobe of criminal defense in New York City and to even consider another firm is outright blasphemy. I stand by this statement 100% Evan
Let me start by saying how amazing Liz Crotty is! I am a resident of California, who needed representation for my son who received a desk citation while he was visiting NYC. Liz jumped on the case right away; she was very thorough in explaining things to me. She is strictly business too! She went to court on my son's behalf and had his case dismissed. I am forever grateful to her. Seana G.
