Audrey Anderson focuses her practice on representing colleges, universities and educational institutions. Drawing on her over 30 years of experience gained as outside litigation counsel, government counsel, and as the general counsel for a major research university, Audrey brings judgment, creativity and practicality to solving her client’s problems across a range of issues arising from the activities of students, faculty and others in learning, living, teaching, researching and working on a college campus. Whether an issue arises under the First Amendment or Title IX, occurs in the lab, the board room or the athletics department, involves counseling, negotiation, or litigation, Audrey helps her clients find practical ways forward.
Her practice involves advising institutions on matters related to Title IX and other investigations; policy reviews and revisions; employment and labor issues, including tenure cases; statutory and regulatory compliance; admissions programs; OCR complaints; and litigation of all types. Audrey serves as a Title IX hearing officer and appellate officer for various universities and works objectively to evaluate evidence and conduct necessary hearings with involved parties. In addition and as needed, Audrey has stepped in to serve as interim general counsel at educational institutions while a search is conducted for a permanent replacement.
