Professor Green Presents on Transgender Students and Title IX

On March 31, Professor Matthew Green participated in a symposium addressing “Contemporary Legal Issues Facing Education” hosted by the law review at Widener University Commonwealth Law School. Professor Green’s presentation focused on the harm inflicted upon transgender students when they are denied access to sex-segregated spaces that align with their gender identity, the role that harm or injury plays in determining whether disparate treatment on the basis of gender identity is tantamount to “unlawful discrimination” on the basis of sex under Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, and how forthcoming Department of Education regulations interpreting Title IX are expected to address these issues.
