Harvard Law School violated federal law by giving more rights to accused students than to accusers in sexual harassment and assault cases, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights announced Tuesday.
The decision closes one of the longest-standing federal investigations into allegations that a school was violating the gender equity law Title IX in its handling of sexual harassment and rape cases. The investigation of Harvard Law began in December 2010, and ended on Dec. 23 with a resolution agreement stipulating action items the school must take under federal monitoring. The department announced the agreement Tuesday and sent a letter of its findings to the school.
