Harvard Law School has been cited for violating federal laws for handling allegations of sexual assault and harassment.

The U.S. Department of Education says the law school did not respond appropriately to two student complains of sexual assault, and took more than a year to make a decision in another complaint.

The law school has entered into an agreement with the U.S. Department of Education to change how it responds to such allegations.
