Why Every Victim Should Have an Attorney in a Title IX Sexual Harassment Hearing
New Title IX Regulations
On August 20, 2020, new regulations went into effect guiding university misconduct hearings for Title IX violations. Under these new regulations, both complainants and respondents in a Title IX investigation have the right to one individual of their choosing to serve as their advisor throughout the investigation process. A Title IX Advisor's role can prove critical during a hearing. Many schools now allow Advisors to cross examine witnesses during a misconduct hearing. Having a trained trial attorney cross examining witnesses on your behalf provides an enormous advantage during a misconduct hearing.
