Title IX Sexual Violence Enforcement Protocols: Two Perspectives

March 21, 2014
Fox Rothschild
Marriott Conshohocken111 Crawford Ave.
West Conshohocken, PA 19428

8 to 10 a.m.

Attorneys from Fox Rothschild’s higher education practice will lead an informative and lively discussion of the current state of Title IX enforcement actions.

Our complimentary roundtable features panelists from VTV Family Outreach Foundation , a non-profit organization that advocates for campus safety and security and assists victims of campus crime, and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), a Philadelphia-based organization whose mission is to defend and sustain individual rights at America’s colleges and universities.

Our program will highlight the basic tension that exists on colleges and universities seeking to vigorously rid campuses of the blight of sexual violence while simultaneously ensuring the accused are treated fairly and have the ability to defend themselves.

As campuses have responded to recent enactments on Title IX by shoring up their investigation and hearing procedures, cases have arisen claiming that the manner in which procedures have been conducted have violated the accused’s rights. Colleges and universities want to do the right thing but are increasingly challenged by the level of complexity that has arisen in these situations.

We aim to provide the audience with insight and practical guidance on this important topic to take back to their campuses.
