Course Description

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities by institutions that receive federal financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education, and sexual misconduct may constitute discrimination prohibited by Title IX. When a school knows or reasonably should know of any incident of sexual misconduct, personnel must take immediate steps to understand what occurred and respond appropriately. This program will explore the elements of Title IX compliance and how attorneys can prepare their clients on investigating complaints of misconduct. The speaker covers several key Title IX cases and real-world investigation issues that the lawyer/investigator may encounter. The presentation will also addresses the new Title IX regulation effective in 2020.
