Due Process on Today’s Campus: Handling Title IX Abuse and Harassment cases

March 8, 2017

Title IX tethers federal funding of colleges and universities to their commitment to investigate and promptly resolve allegations of sexual misconduct on campus. These investigations and hearings do not operate consistent with traditional standards of Due Process but under a standard unfamiliar to most criminal defense practitioners. The panel will discuss what criminal defense attorneys need to understand about these proceedings, how institutions of higher education are implementing Title IX directives and the accompanying challenges they face, and the interplay between campus discipline and parallel criminal investigations or civil suits brought by the alleged victim.
