Recent grad here, currently employed in a one-year clerkship.

Unfortunately, I'm in character and fitness purgatory, so I'm actively seeking out JD Advantage positions in the event that the Star Chamber rules against me.

I've seen postings for Title IX Compliance positions at various institutions of higher learning-does anyone have any personal experiences/anecdotes re: applying for these kinds of jobs?

FWIW, I've worked with survivors (both male and female) of domestic violence and sexual assault in a variety of settings, including immigration law, family law, veterans law, etc.

In addition, I'm also interested in ADA compliance jobs. I've done disability work with indigent clients.

Great work if you can get it, and the JD is an advantage. Problem I've seen is that at a lot of universities, these jobs are posted as if open to anyone but in reality they're earmarked for either unemployed grads of the place's own law school OR they are given to spouses of rock star faculty members who often come as a "package deal" (i.e. it is pretty well known up-front that the school will only get the faculty member if they can find something for the spouse to do).

That shouldn't dissuade you from applying, but try to network your way in if you can. Otherwise you have no way of distinguishing the real postings from formality postings where they already have someone in mind.

I’m a Title IX Coordinator at a midsize university. I also handle Section 504 issues. Background is jd from lower tier school. Graduated cum laude but job prospects were dim. Clerked and spent some time in a law firm doing contract work. Made the jump into investigations, ended up in the title ix department. What would you like to know?

What is the best way to get some investigation experience? I see a lot of Title IX job postings, but they usually want a couple of years of experience. Im a 3rd year associate at a large law firm but would like to work at a higher ed institution and am looking to make a move soon.

I would recommend you join NACUA. You should be able to since you’re in a law firm. They offer investigator trainings which are pretty affordable. Webinars and such. It’s a good investment for many reasons. Otherwise, you probably need to try to float some of your deposition experience as an in into investigations. Bone up on the relevant Dear Colleague Letters, even the ones rescinded by the Trump Administration. And familiarize yourself with the VAWA regulations, that should give you a pretty good background.
Let me know if you have more questions.

Depends a little on the university, the location and the reputation at risk. Public vs private plays into it, too. I would say that an in house attorney investigator should receive 55k at least. I’ve seen people top out at 80k, but that’s a unicorn. 70k is doable.

I guess the biggest question is whether your family gets to attend school there for free. My undergrad allowed any full-time employee's immediate family members to attend the school for free.

My institution allows children to attend the institution for free and participates in a tuition reduction program with other universities in the region. So yes, good point, that’s certainly a valuable benefit at some institutions.
