Notice of Non-Discrimination


HLS Students, Staff and Faculty

Harvard has a University-wide Title IX policy, the University Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment Policy.  This policy applies to all members of the Harvard community.

HLS Students

Reports of sexual harassment, including sexual assault and sexual violence, will be processed under the HLS Sexual Harassment Resources and Procedures for Students when both the complainant and the respondent are HLS students.

If either the complainant or the respondent is a non-HLS student, the Harvard University Procedures for Handling Complaints Involving Students Pursuant to the Sexual and Gender Based Harassment Policy will be used, and, when the respondent is an HLS student, will be supplemented by the HLS Interschool Sexual Harassment Procedures.

HLS Staff

The new university-wide Sexual/Gender-Based Harassment Complaint Procedures Against Staff are now effective.  For complaints against staff only, these procedures supersede the Interim Harvard Law School Sexual Harassment Policy and Procedures.

HLS Faculty

Harvard Law School is in the process of revising procedures for faculty. In the interim, the following procedures apply: Interim Harvard Law School Sexual Harassment Policy and Procedures.  As soon as the faculty procedures are revised, they will be posted to this site.
