Elon Law scholar reflects on Title IX for ‘Buckley Report’

Assistant Professor Chrystal Clodomir spoke with Bob Buckley of FOX8 WGHP for a syndicated retrospective on the 50th anniversary of a law that revolutionized educational opportunities for women in the United States.

An Elon Law professor with a background in education law provided commentary for a syndicated television report on the 50th anniversary of the passage of federal legislation that established equal educational opportunities for women.

Assistant Professor Chrystal Clodomir spoke at length with journalist Bob Buckley, host of FOX8 WGHP’s “The Buckley Report,” for a June 23 segment on the history of Title IX, a 1972 update to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that previously made no mention of discrimination in education.

“Title IX 50 Years Later” included interviews with collegiate athletes and university administrators who discuss various elements to the law.

“I think that even though (sports are) what’s on the surface – what we see the most – it has deeper and more far-reaching consequences that people feel in more subtle ways than athletics,” Clodomir said in her interview.

Clodomir teaches Legal Writing and Communication having managed a solo practice in Greensboro, Clodomir Law Firm, where she has assisted parents and children in a variety of family and education matters. She also has taught courses in the paralegal program at Guilford Technical Community College and has worked for local governments as a soft skills trainer in various public agencies.

A graduate of Rutgers University and Cornell University School of Law, Clodomir practiced criminal law in New York and education law in Delaware prior to joining the legal staff of the Children’s Law Center of Central North Carolina in 2018.
