Are you feeling like you're caught in Title IX limbo? If so, you're in good company. And, that feeling is not unreasonable. The courts are in an activist mode, and it seems they are changing sexual misconduct procedural protections every week now. We're working under a 2017 OCR Interim Guide that just about everyone seems to be ignoring. Venerable 2011 and 2014 OCR guidance is gone. Proposed new regulations saw 105,874 comments (mostly disapproving of the proposed changes), and their future hangs in the balance of a political process, a national election, and seemingly endless potential litigation. Against this crazy backdrop, what is a conscientious Title IX administrator to do?
 
In this webinar, Title IX experts  Brett A. Sokolow, J.D. and  Daniel C. Swinton, J.D., Ed.D. will offer their thoughts for current best practice, highlight the first principles that undergird Title IX no matter what political winds are blowing, and try to prepare you for where the future direction of litigation and regulation is likely to take us. Plus, we'll talk about the wave of new policies banning employee-student relationships, and what you ought to be considering as pressure mounts to revise those policies, as well.
 
The webinar will be approximately 90 minutes in length. All attendees will receive the recording with purchase. A recording of the webinar will be available for purchase for those unable to attend the live event.
