Event description

Description

2 substantive credits. $99. Whether you are representing the complainant or the respondent, attorneys need to understand how higher education institutions handle cases of student sexual misconduct under Title IX. This CLE will hep attorneys understand current federal Title IX law, regulations, and significant guidance documents, like the just released 2017 Dear Colleague Letter on Title IX and the interim guidance on campus sexual misconduct. Attorneys must also understand the campus student judicial process and how that intersects with Title IX cases and what attorneys can and cannot do in representing students in these important matters.

She teaches Education Law at Villanova University School of Law as an Adjunct Professor.
