Legal Assistance

SurvJustice, works to hold both perpetrators and enablers of sexual violence accountable through campus, criminal and civil systems. We do this by providing expert consulting and witness testimony services to law firms working with survivors and by providing direct legal assistance to survivors in:

  • Campus disciplinary hearings
  • Criminal investigations and prosecutions
  • Civil lawsuits & related proceedings

Policy Advocacy

SurvJustice uses its first-hand knowledge and experience providing legal assistance to survivors to provide expertise and technical assistance to federal legislation on policy. We also provide technical assistance to state legislators working as changemakers on the topic of sexual violence within their community.

Institutional Training

SurvJustice routinely trains ccampus officials, student activists, community advocates, law enforcement agencies, victim rights lawyers, and other groups or associations interested in the issues surrounding campus sexual violence. Our trainings ensure that campus communities better understand victims’ rights and federal obligations to address sexual violence under the Clery Act and Title IX.
