Description of Course

Enhanced due process protections, particularly for the responding party, are a focus of OCR’s Proposed Title IX Regulations. Participants will explore the procedural and substantive elements of the proposed regulations and recent relevant case law against the backdrop of an exploration of ATIXA’s approach to best-practice procedural and substantive protections. Case studies and procedural analysis will enhance the ability of participants to see the due process deficits on their own campuses and offer sound approaches to curing those deficits. Discussion on effective and efficient procedures, potential pitfalls, and best practices in organizational structure will also be included. Participants will:

  • Understand the substantive due process concept of fairness of outcome
  • Be able to articulate the major provisions of the Proposed Title IX Regulations, including their impact on:
    • The Deliberate Indifference Standard
    • Reverse Discrimination
    • Religious Exemptions
    • Access to Evidence
    • The Evidentiary Standard
    • Retaliation and Mediation
  • Be able to explain why due process is under fire and understand the legal underpinnings of due process claims, including how the field’s tilt toward becoming the sex police threatens gender equity on college campuses
  • Be able to distinguish Title IX due process from Constitutional due process, and know how to balance procedures accordingly
  • Take away concrete suggestions for ways to enhance due process within procedures
  • Distinguish and apply the concepts of procedural and substantive due process
  • Grasp emerging best practices by seeing federal guidance as a floor, and not a ceiling
  • Be able to apply the lessons of significant recent cases
