A pre-recorded streaming video replay from the October 2016 webcast, Representing Clients in Title IX Investigations of Sexual Misconduct on College Campuses.
Over the past seven years, college and university campuses have seen a substantial increase in the number of allegations of sexual assault and other forms of sexual misconduct. The process by which colleges and universities investigate and adjudicate these allegations has generated heated controversy throughout the nation, as colleges and universities implement new and controversial procedures to meet their obligations under Title IX, and as students and their families attempt to navigate the life-changing consequences that may result from a report of sexual misconduct.
This seminar introduces attorneys to the legal concepts that govern how colleges and universities investigate and adjudicate allegations of sexual misconduct against their students. It provides practical advice to attorneys in this unique legal setting—those representing accused students, complainants, witnesses, and those representing colleges and universities. It explores the difficulties that students face in proceedings that are neither criminal nor civil in nature. And it explores the rapidly developing case law delineating the obligations of colleges and universities, as well as the rights of the accused students.
