This training is intended for institutions affected by an injunction that blocks the Department of Education from enforcing the 2024 Title IX Regulations in their state or against their specific institution. This training complies with the 2020 Title IX Regulations, which are currently in place, and which will remain in place until the injunctions are lifted.

Under the 2020 Title IX Regulations, Title IX Coordinators and Deputy Coordinators are responsible for ensuring that your institution complies with its obligations under Title IX and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA), and higher education institutions are legally required to provide them with specialized training on an annual basis. Given the current legal obligations, the possible changes to the law, the heightened focus on enforcement of Title IX, and the increasing complexity of sexual misconduct matters, it is more important than ever that your Title IX Coordinators are well trained on your institution’s obligations under Title IX and VAWA.

Join us for an in-depth training specifically designed to satisfy annual training requirements and to provide advanced Title IX Coordinators and Deputy Coordinators with an up-to-date understanding of current compliance requirements, as well as best practices. Our training is conducted by higher education attorneys who regularly advise institutions on all aspects of the sexual misconduct process, from policy drafting, to investigating and adjudicating sexual misconduct cases, through the final resolution of sexual misconduct matters. This firsthand, real-world experience will help participants to understand not only the legal requirements, but also the practical day-to-day application of related policies and procedures and will help even the most experienced participants navigate the complex and often nuanced issues that arise throughout the sexual misconduct process. Attendees will also have the opportunity to put their training into action as they work together to oversee a complex sexual misconduct case and receive valuable, in-the-moment feedback from higher education attorneys. Attendees will receive a certificate verifying their completion of the training session.

This training session covers:

  • Updates on the legal landscape
    • 2020 Title IX regulations
    • VAWA/Clery Act
    • Recent Title IX and due process litigation
  • Identifying key components of legally compliant and effective policies and procedures relating to sexual misconduct
  • Overseeing a legally compliant and effective investigation and grievance process
    • Procedural requirements of the current Title IX regulations
      • Investigations
      • Adjudications/Hearings
      • Informal resolution processes
    • Structuring a process applicable to sexual misconduct cases that do not fall under Title IX
  • How to serve impartially
  • Case studies designed to help participants troubleshoot challenging real-life scenarios

We anticipate offering a supplemental training on the 2024 Title IX Regulations if and when those go into effect for any of the institutions currently affected by an injunction.
