The U.S. Department of Education recently announced new "interim guidance" to rescind Obama-era rules on how colleges and universities address the requirements of Title IX and issues of sexual violence — creating not only uncertainty about the law, but also a significant risk of confusion and even campus unrest.
This interactive webinar will provide an overview of the interim guidance recently issued by DOE, as well as comments by Secretary Betsy DeVos regarding potential future rule-making. We will discuss how the interim guidance is likely to impact colleges and universities today, including issues related to evidentiary standards and due process rights, and offer practical tips for addressing how these recent developments are likely to impact students, colleges and universities in cases involving sexual violence on campus.
