Putting Facts Into Focus:

A Nuts and Bolts Writing Workshop

February 16 • 9:30 am - 4:30 pm (PST)

The parties and witnesses have been interviewed, and other evidence has been collected and reviewed. As the investigator, your next step is to prepare a written report that lays out the facts for multiple audiences – the parties, campus administrators and possibly legal counsel and the courts. You may also be required to prepare written analyses and findings related to the allegations.

If the complaint goes to a hearing, a campus hearing officer will likely need to write a decision that explains the outcome.

For many Title IX professionals, writing an investigative report or drafting a well-reasoned decision is the most difficult part of the job.

In this informative workshop, T9 faculty Liz DeChellis and Eli Makus give you the tools and techniques to achieve clear, concise, and well-organized written reports and findings. Drawing on their vast experience managing investigations and conducting campus hearings, Liz and Eli dive into the analytical process that is fundamental to good writing in the Title IX arena.

Addressing the specific challenges of Title IX complaints, this program covers:

  • Neutral language and terminology
  • What to include and what to delete
  • Relevance and how it informs the writing process
  • Material disputed and undisputed facts
  • Credibility factors and writing a credibility assessment
  • Elements of a reasoned analysis or decision that draws upon policy language

Registration:

  • Early registration: $725 (deadline January 31)
  • Regular registration: $800
