Sexual assaults are among the most difficult and complex cases in the criminal justice system. Allowing untrained amateurs to work on these cases is demeaning to victims and unfair to those accused. Then they should get out of the way and let professionals do the job.
There is little incentive for individual schools to address sexual assault if other universities appear immune to sexual violence. Maintaining an impeccable public reputation is perceived to be of greater importance than confronting painful and damaging problems.
