Fighting for Equal Education Opportunities for All

Colleges and universities, both private and public, have a duty to provide an environment for students that is both safe and free from discrimination and harassment.

At the firm of Berman & Asbel, LLP our experienced lawyers advocate for college students who fall victim to discrimination and violence on campus or are accused of bad behavior. Pursuant to state and federal laws, including Title VI, Title IX, and the Clery Act, our lawyers protect college students' rights when their college or university fails to do the following:

  • Accurately report on-campus crime
  • Fairly treat victims of sexual violence
  • Provide equal access to activities such as sports or clubs
  • Fairly and equally apply discipline across the student body
  • Provide appropriate accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Be respectful of students' First Amendment rights to freedom of speech, and due process rights to adequate notice and opportunity to be heard in any disciplinary action.

If your college or university fails to respect your rights and liberties, or if you have been unjustly accused of bad behavior, wrongfully suspended or removed from campus, contact Berman & Asbel, LLP to let your voice be heard and your rights protected.
