Title IX was passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972 and states that "No person in the United States shall, based on sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." Fifty years later, Supreme Court decisions and guidance from the U.S. Department of Education have given Title IX a broad scope that now includes sexual harassment and violence. Mark Merritt led a panel discussion as part of a Mecklenburg County Bar CLE that covered the impact of Title IX over the last half-century.
