On-Campus Resources for Sexual Assault and Harassment
Yale Law School and Yale University have an array of overlapping resources and complaint processes for students subjected to sexual misconduct. The following provides an overview of the resources and remedies available to students. Please note that of the University and Law School resources listed, only the SHARE Center and University’s Mental Health & Counseling Department and Title IX-Leads at Yale Health offer strict confidentiality. The confidentiality, procedural formality, and available remedies vary widely from process to process, as outlined in this chart. Teaching Assistants, Dean’s Advisors, and Cokers are all also mandatory reporters.
Information on Title IX Resources at Yale Law School specifically can be found at the Title IX Resources website and the Title IX Working Group page. More information on Sexual Misconduct Response at Yale and University resources is available at the Sexual Misconduct Response at Yale website and the University Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC) website. Specific information on Yale University’s definitions of sexual misconduct, sexual consent, and sexual harassment, as well as the University’s policy on teacher-student consensual relationships can be found on the Yale Office of Equal Opportunity programs website.
Information is also available in YLW’s brochure “Sexual Misconduct Response: Resources for YLS Students,” available here.
The Title IX Working Group at YLS operates IX-Leads, where students can confidentially speak with peers about issues of sex discrimination at the law school. If you would like to chat with a member of the IX-Leads team or schedule a Know Your Rights training, please email a IX Lead. Please note that if one of theses members serves as your Coker, DA, or TA, they may not be able to keep information confidential if you disclose an experience of discrimination. Consider reaching out to a different IX-Lead.
