Kathryn Nash and Stephen Vaughan to Present Training at Gray Plant Mooty.
Higher education institutions are legally required to provide specialized training on an annual basis to individuals responsible for adjudicating sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking proceedings. Given these legal obligations, the heightened focus on enforcement of Title IX, and the increasing complexity of sexual misconduct adjudications, it is more important than ever that your Title IX adjudicators are well-trained and that they understand how trauma impacts these investigations and adjudications.
Join us for a three-hour training specifically designed for Title IX adjudicators. The benefits of our training extend beyond simply satisfying your adjudicators’ annual training requirements. Our training is conducted by Higher Education attorneys who regularly advise institutions on all aspects of the sexual misconduct process, from policy drafting through the final resolution of sexual misconduct matters. Because these attorneys also have extensive experience investigating and adjudicating sexual misconduct cases for institutions, this training incorporates first-hand, real world experience and provides practical guidance on navigating the complex issues that arise during this process.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to put their training into action as they work together to adjudicate a sexual misconduct case. Attendees will receive a certificate verifying their completion of the training session.
This training will include:
- An overview of Title IX and VAWA
- The role and responsibilities of Title IX investigators and adjudicators
- The effects of trauma
- Other legally required training topics under Title IX and VAWA
- Best practices for decision-making
- Adjudication of a hypothetical case
- Special considerations for deciding appeals
