Senior Partner Ann Olivarius was interviewed for a feature published in the Chronicle of Higher Education, written by Robin Wilson. The article covered Dr. Olivarius' involvement in the 1977 case Alexander v. Yale, in which she and four other female students sued Yale University under Title IX. The case was one of the first to apply Title IX to sexual harassment.
In the article, Dr. Olivarius said:
"Why is it so hard for an educational institution to police itself? If it were GM or McDonald’s that had made no real progress in fixing a serious product defect that’s been illegal for three decades, people would rightly be angry. Universities charge students tuition, they realize this is a recurring issue, yet despite having the best and brightest minds, they seem immobilized."
