The representation of college students for school disciplinary actions have changed drastically over the last 7 years. From the 2011 Dear Colleague letter that outlined new rules for colleges to follow when dealing with sexual violence or harassment to the most recent reversals by the department of education, if you are going to represent a client in a disciplinary or Title IX case you must fully understand the law and the procedure when representing or advising a client.
Scott Limmer, a criminal defense attorney who has also represented clients in college disciplinary hearings across the Northeast, will provide an overview and practice tips for handling Title IX defense.
Scott J. Limmer has more than 20 years of experience practicing in the area of criminal defense law, representing clients in State and Federal Courts. Scott represents clients throughout Nassau, Suffolk and Queens Counties for essentially every type of criminal offense.
He received his Juris Doctor from Nova Southeastern University in 1993. In 1994, he began work as an Assistant District Attorney in Nassau County, where he handled thousands of cases and gained invaluable knowledge in the area of criminal law. In 1998, he left the DA’s office and founded a solo criminal defense practice on Long Island. Not long after, he added an additional office in Queens. Scott has represented countless clients throughout Nassau, Suffolk and Queens Counties, advocating and guiding them through the criminal justice process.
Scott also represents clients accused of violating their college’s code of conduct, specifically Title IX sexual abuse and harassment issues. He has advised clients throughout schools in the Northeast as well as around the country.
Scott is the co-host of the “Reboot Your Law Practice” podcast. Scott and his co-host talk each week about how attorneys must give value, be authentic, build relationships, adjust, and evolve to be successful in the new legal reality we are practicing in.
Scott enjoys discussing the business aspects of running a law practice, the future of law and how technology is changing the way most lawyers do business.
The lack of due process offered to defendants in these hearings is terrifying. Would like to see an update with the recent reforms that are finally being implemented in 2020.
Best cle I have heard in a while awesomely
Informative. Useful. Interesting. Scary.
Mr. Limmer was excellent - extremely informative and practical information delivered in a way that represented defendants and respected accusers. Both women and men have been the accused in Title IX cases, and I wish the Bar did more to obtain due process for the accused as well as an unbiased hearing for the accuser.
EXCELLENT SPEAKER AND VERY INFORMATIVE
Tremendous presentation about a difficult legal topic.
Every parent sending a child to college needs to watch this seminar.
Interesting and well done presentation of a difficult topic where the rights of accused people are trampled upon by fundamentally unfair academic administrative proceedings. A compelling subject that needs much more focus and activism by the legal profession. .
Outstanding course. I felt well prepared to help students navigate this terrible process.
He did a great job of explaining the law and how it applies. Very interesting
The speaker was very experienced and able to convey the subject in an interesting manner.
Excellent, excellent and excellent! This was extremely informative and he took you through the practical steps. I thought it was really gracious of him to offer his contact information. Wonderful presentation on all levels.
