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?
