    Sexual Assault In Florida Colleges

    The Clery Act is a consumer protection law that aims to provide transparency around campus crime policy and statistics.

    In order to comply with Clery Act requirements, colleges and universities must understand what the law entails, where their responsibilities lie, and what they can do to actively foster campus safety. Read more..  

    Buckman and Buckman, P.A. represents college students who have been raped or sexually assaulted on campus.

    The Clery Act requires colleges and universities that receive federal funding to disseminate a public annual security report (ASR) to employees and students every October 1st. This ASR must include statistics of campus crime for the preceding 3 calendar years, plus details about efforts taken to improve campus safety.

    ASRs must also include policy statements regarding (but not limited to) crime reporting, campus facility security and access, law enforcement authority, incidence of alcohol and drug use, and the prevention of/response to sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, and stalking.

    Often, we find that a college or university failed to enact security measures that allowed the perpetrator to assault or rape a student.

    How dangerous is your school? Did your school know you would be at risk?
