Kathryn Nash and Carl Crosby Lehmann to Present Title IX/VAWA Training at Gray Plant Mooty
Given the heightened enforcement focus under Title IX and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA), it is important to ensure that members of your hearing panels are well trained on their obligations in adjudicating sexual misconduct matters.
Higher education institutions are legally required to provide specialized training on an annual basis to individuals responsible for investigating and adjudicating matters relating to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. And with new legal requirements making Title IX hearings more complicated than ever, regular training for officials involved in the hearing process is essential for avoiding problems before and after a decision is rendered.
Join us for a four-hour in-depth training for hearing panel members to ensure that your institution is carrying out its responsibilities and satisfying its annual training requirements. Attendees learn about legal requirements for handling complaints of sexual misconduct, and receive practical guidance on how to navigate complex issues that arise during the hearing process.
