Survivor Advocacy Project

The Survivor Advocacy Project (SAP) explores Title IX and alternative models for providing intersectional, trauma-informed legal support for survivors of sexual violence and sexual harassment (SVSH) at UC Berkeley. This year our work will include two major initiatives: First, we will be launching a legal intake program to help campus survivors prepare for on-campus adjudication hearings, assess investigative reports for appeal, and access off-campus legal remedies. Second, we will be conducting research in support of ongoing Title IX and FEHA cases, as well as requesting the publication of SVSH-related appellate opinions to create binding legal precedent.

If you are interested in becoming a part of our team, please plan to attend our mandatory training sessions on Wednesday, September 26th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 29th from 10:00am-2:00 p.m. Due to the sensitive nature of our work it is essential that new members participate in this training.

Supervision: Students in SAP provide legal services under the supervision of attorneys at the Oakland Law Collaborative and the Family Violence Appellate Project.
