Course Description

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.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss the rights students have with respect to disciplinary hearings
  2. Review the impact of Title IX on college disciplinary actions regarding sexual abuse or harassment
  3. Represent a client faced with a disciplinary or Title IX charge

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.

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.

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. .
