Boston Globe logo

The Boston Globe's Dugan Arnett reported recently that a law firm that focuses on representing students accused of campus sexual assault has opened an office in Boston. In the article, BARCC Staff Attorney Patricia McNamara offers a defense of Title IX guidelines and survivors' choices in seeking justice after sexual violence.

Excerpt: "'Lots of survivors would choose not to pursue a criminal justice system response, because they don’t want the perpetrator to go to jail,' [McNamara] says. 'What they want is for the perpetrator to leave them alone.'"

Read the full piece, "Law firms focused on those accused of campus sexual assault open doors in Boston," on the Boston Globe website.
