Celebrate Women's History Month with a Variety of Events Around Campus

Celebrate Women's History Month this March with a variety of events around campus.

Title IX: Is Reform Necessary?
Tues., March 23, 6 p.m., Law School, Flynn Auditorium

Title IX is a landmark piece of legislation that has had lasting effects on the law, education, sports and public policy. This year's Women Law Student Association Hyatt Fund panel discussion will focus on the impact of the regulations promulgated pursuant to Title IX, such as the proportionality requirements, and whether these regulations are in need of reform or are simply being misinterpreted.

Panelists include Sen. Birch Bayh, drafter of the Title IX bill, Vice Chancellor David Williams, sports law professor at Vanderbilt, and Byran Knepper, coach of the Middle Tennessee State University's wrestling team and a former collegiate wrestler.

Sponsored by Women Law Students Association, Entertainment and Sports Law Society, Hyatt Fund, and the Margaret Cuninggim Women’s Center.
