On May 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education published the long-anticipated final Title IX regulations, which take effect on August 14, 2020, amidst the national emergency caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic. The final regulations significantly reshape the responsibilities of colleges and universities under Title IX and the process institutions must follow when investigating and adjudicating Title IX complaints, including a requirement that institutions conduct live hearings with cross examination and provide advisors to parties without one to conduct cross examination at no cost.
Please join partner Dina L. Vespia of Cullen and Dykman LLP’s Higher Education practice group for a complimentary one-hour webinar on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 2:00 PM to discuss what comes next for higher education institutions. After an overview of key provisions of the regulations, the speakers will discuss important differences between the proposed rules and final rules, what institutions must do to achieve compliance, and practical guidance as to how these regulations may impact colleges and universities and campus sexual misconduct.
