On November 16, 2018, the U.S. Department of Education issued proposed regulations to supplement Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 in response to a pressing need for clarification of the gender discrimination statute that has evolved so far from its beginnings. With the final regulations expected to be enacted at any moment in 2020, we find ourselves on the precipice of a new era for Title IX.
This program will provide an overview of the new Title IX regulations and highlight the key differences with how Title IX has been enforced since the 2011 Dear Colleague Letter. Presented by Kimberly C. Lau, Esq., the program will benefit attorneys who represent students, teachers and faculty, administrators, and educational institutions at both the K-12 level, and at institutions of higher education.
Ms. Lau concentrates her practice on Title IX actions, college disciplinary matters and commercial litigation. Her experience includes state and federal practice, trials, arbitrations, mediations and appeals. She has represented numerous students in proceedings to combat gender discrimination at major colleges and universities and regularly serves in a critical advisory role during student disciplinary proceedings. In addition, Ms. Lau handles intra-company disputes among partnerships, corporations and limited liability companies in the hospitality, energy and real estate industries.
