Attorneys are increasingly being asked to assist students in campus judicial proceedings, particularly those involving sexual misconduct. If you get such a phone call, you may wonder why colleges are handling these cases to begin with, and you may be uncertain of what assistance you can provide in this extrajudicial setting. While college judiciaries are not courts of law, students--particularly those at public universities--are entitled to some measure of due process, which campus courts do not always provide. This course, led by attorney Samantha Harris, will help attorneys gain an understanding of this unique setting and the role an attorney might play in helping a student accused of sexual misconduct obtain a fair hearing on campus.


Learning Objectives:

I.     Understand the legal and regulatory framework within which colleges are expected to adjudicate claims of sexual assault on campus

II.    Identify law surrounding due process in campus judicial proceedings

III.   Assess an overview of campus sexual misconduct proceedings

IV.   Assist an accused student in on-campus proceedings
