Title IX, Due Process, and Campus Sexual Misconduct (Update)
Created on November 12, 2018
In this update to her original course, attorney Samantha Harris provides an overview of the unique setting of campus judicial proceedings, addressing the role an attorney might play in helping a student accused of sexual misconduct obtain a fair hearing on campus.
Attorneys asked to assist in such cases may wonder why colleges are handling these cases to begin with, and may be uncertain of what assistance can be provided 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.
