Joshua D. Whitlock

Joshua D. Whitlock is a principal in the Charlotte, North Carolina, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. He focuses his practice on meeting the legal needs of higher education institutions.  

Josh believes deeply in higher education’s mission and impact and considers it a great privilege to work closely with institutions of all types—from community colleges, to small private schools, to large public research universities—to find thoughtful and effective answers to the unique issues that they face. Josh has extensive experience defending colleges and universities in a broad range of litigation and investigations, as well as counseling them on a variety of issues, including Title IX compliance, the handling of sexual misconduct allegations, FERPA compliance, disability accommodation and related compliance, student discipline and faculty tenure matters, and Clery Act compliance. He frequently interacts with the U.S. Department of Education, having successfully represented schools in dozens of federal investigations and participated in multiple, invitation-only, small group listening sessions with Education Department leadership on topics such as Title IX regulatory reform and the rights of transgender students. He is a national thought leader on Title IX- and disability-related claims and compliance and frequently speaks and publishes on those matters.
