The higher education landscape has been thrust into the national spotlight and dominates the headlines due to new formal guidance proposals regarding Title IX since the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and United States Secretary of Education announced the changes. Further, the withdrawal of the 2011 "Dear Colleague Letter" (DCL) regarding student-on-student sexual harassment and sexual violence and the 2014 Questions and Answers on Title IX Sexual Violence documents elevated awareness of sexual violence and the rights and obligations under Title IX.
Campus sexual misconduct concerns on college campuses dominate the headlines as new and proposed legislation—at both state and federal levels—spark changes in the area of protection afforded to students who have been victims of sexual violence, discrimination, and/or assault. As the legal and regulatory landscape continues to shift, keeping up-to-date on this complex and challenging area is essential.
In this program, you hear from a panel of experienced attorneys who provide insights on the critical aspects of handling Title IX cases, including investigating claims of sexual assault, representing students involved in disciplinary proceedings, responding to charges filed with the OCR, and defending institutional clients in lawsuits. If your practice involves any Title IX matters, this is one update you cannot miss.
