In today’s episode, Christine MacMillan speaks with Cari Simon, who is one of the nation’s leading Title IX attorneys representing survivors of sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, and sexual harassment in University and K–12 settings nationwide. She is a graduate of Harvard Law School.

Simon has been credited with the inclusion of stalking and dating violence in the definition of sexual harassment under Title IX, and her impact litigation ensured universities are responsible under Title IX for sexual violence at fraternity houses.

Simon represents scores of survivors on college campuses and in K-12. She effectively represents survivors in campus disciplinary proceedings, and in obtaining remedies and accommodations to ensure survivors can safely and fully access the benefits of their education.

To hold schools accountable for failing to uphold survivor’s rights, Simon represents survivors in Title IX litigation against Universities, and her efforts have launched multiple federal investigations into colleges and schools.

Widely regarded as a Gender Violence Policy Expert, Simon directed the United States Congressional Victims’ Rights Caucus, advises gender-based violence legislative efforts in numerous states, and was appointed to the Sexual Misconduct Advisory Committee by the Colorado Department of Higher Education.
