Student Note Advocates for Title IX Compliance Without Cutting Men's Teams

In the current issue of the West Virginia Law Review, law student Ryan Smith argues that public universities in West Virginia can comply with Title IX without eliminating men's sports like track and field. I think the fact that this approach strikes students as novel shows just how pervasive the assumption that Title IX is a mandate to do otherwise.
