Marquette Sports Law Review Publishes Title IX Symposium Issue

Marquette Sports Law Review has published its Title IX Symposium issue, which includes an article that Kris and I co-authored about Title IX's equal treatment requirement, using examples from this blog to help explore and explain why that aspect of Title IX is often overlooked in favor of the more widely known equal opportunity requirement (the three-part test). 

The issue also contains other articles about Title IX:
  • Professor Paul Anderson reviews 40 years of legal developments that shaped Title IX.
  • Professor Deborah Brake reminds us that we are not limited to using Title IX to address the problem of romantic relationships between coaches and athletes. 
  • Attoney Diane Heckman examines the relationship between Title IX and the Supreme Court over the last 40 years.
  • Attorney Julie Yap argues that schools should have notice and an opportunity cure claims for money damages under Title IX, in athletics cases as well as sexual harassment cases.
  • Professor Brian Porto argues that retaliation victims ought to be protected under Title IX if they had a "contextually reasonable" or good faith basis that motivated their complaint that their institution was in violation of Title IX.
  • Professor Ellen Staurowsky questions whether Title IX is really relevant in the debate about paying college athletes, when athletic scholarships are more like payment for services rendered and not connected to educational opportunities.
  • Dean Cynthia Lee A. Pemberton critiques the persistence of reticence to comply with Title IX.
  • Cassandra Jones has a brief book review of Brake's Getting in the Game: Title IX and the Women's Sports Revolution.
