‘Philadelphia’ Magazine Exposes Major Government Threat to Rights on Campus–And the Lawyers Who Profit

August 26, 2011

A must-read article in Philadelphia Magazine’s latest issue exposes the new federal threat to due process rights on campus regarding sexual misconduct and harassment—and the lawyers and organizations that profit from the mandate. One group even grossed $425,000 from a single seminar about complying with the new regulations. The article also features FIRE’s work to protect the rights of all students and the integrity of campus judiciaries by ensuring fair standards of justice. It reveals the flippant attitude towards fair procedures displayed by the lawyers who profit most from the government mandate. The article is essential reading for parents, college students, and administrators nationwide.
