About this Program

Sexual assault accusations are common in university life, and these cases are most often handled by a school’s campus judicial services instead of being brought before a criminal court.  In this course, criminal defense attorney Matthew Kaiser sheds light on the limited rights of the accused in the school’s disciplinary process, and the steps attorneys can take to manage such a disadvantage.  Mr. Kaiser also provides recommendations on how to handle the investigation and hearing stages of a school’s disciplinary process in this environment which is not "lawyer friendly," and informs viewers of the applicable federal laws that may help protect a client’s rights.   Emphasizing the significance of social media and technology in any sexual assault university case, this program provides attorneys with everything they need to know to successfully defend individuals in sexual assault disciplinary hearings.

One of the best I've heard---an interesting topic, handled extremely well and from the perspective of the defendant, not the accuser, which is good for a change. Lots of excellent practical tips, too.

Without mentioning lacross, but by carefully using words (especially gender as a verb), the speaker helps us see the situation in practical terms. Seeing these matters as the academic participants see them, narrowing thefocus to that which can be effectively done for the client - works as advicebut more broadly helps us understand.
