Information

Why Attend?

  • Examine Title IX, one of the nation’s most-discussed statutes
  • Explore litigation in a rapidly developing area of law
  • Learn what animates the national debate over campus sexual misconduct
  • Discover an area of practice neither strictly criminal nor civil

Colleges and universities have seen a dramatic spike in allegations of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault. Schools that receive federal funding are required by Title IX to have procedures in place to investigate and adjudicate those allegations, but schools have implemented new and controversial procedures of late, generating heated controversy throughout the nation. Students and their families increasingly enlist the help of lawyers as they attempt to navigate the life-changing consequences that may result from a report of sexual misconduct.

This seminar introduces attorneys to the legal framework that governs how colleges and universities resolve allegations of sexual misconduct against their students. It delivers practical advice to attorneys in all roles in this unique legal setting—those advising accused students, complainants, and witnesses, as well as those representing colleges and universities. It explores considerations unique to a setting that is neither criminal nor civil in nature. And it surveys the rapidly developing case law defining the obligations of schools and the rights of accused students.
