C.L. Lindsay: Attorney and Speaker


Title IX Programming/Sexual Assault and the Law, Dangers of Social Media, Alcohol on Campus, Plagiarism, Cyber Bullying, Online Stalking and More.


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my page. I take all of these topics seriously, and so should you. As an attorney it troubles me that so many speakers on the market hold themselves out as experts in these areas, when they simply aren’t. I urge you to vet anyone you bring to your campus, base or other venue to speak VERY carefully. I truly want you all to have the best possible information when it comes to these issues.

bookpg C.L Literally Wrote the Textbook on Campus Law for Students!








In 1998, attorney C.L. Lindsay III, left his practice in New York City to found the Coalition for Student & Academic Rights (CO-STAR). Since then, acting as its Executive Director, he has built CO-STAR into a national student rights organization that helps thousands of college students with their legal problems, free of charge, each year.
