This training discusses a requirement found in the Title IX Regulations regarding the use of statements by a party or witness who does not submit to cross-examination at the live hearing. As set forth in Slide 239, the regulations prohibited a decision-maker from relying on statements from a party or witness who does not submit to cross-examination; the requirement prohibited consideration of all statements by such a party or witness, including statements in the investigation report or any other source such as police reports, medical exams, text messages, or witness accounts. See 34 C.F.R. § 106.45(b)(6)(i). On August 24, 2021, the United States Department of Education Office for Civil Rights issued a letter notifying institutions that the Department will no longer enforce that prohibition because of a federal court ruling that vacated that provision of the regulations. Institutions are no longer prohibited from relying on the statement of a party or witness who does not submit to cross-examination and decision-makers may consider statements made by parties and witnesses during the investigation, emails or text messages, and statements in other sources such as police reports and medical reports, regardless of whether the party or witness was subject to cross-examination at the live hearing. Any discussion in this training of the prohibition on the use of statements from parties or witnesses who are not subject to cross-examination is no longer applicable and should not be relied on.

Higher education institutions are legally required to provide specialized training on an annual basis to individuals responsible for investigating sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking complaints. Further, the 2020 Title IX regulations require investigators to receive training on specific topics. Given the current legal obligations, the significant recent changes to the legal landscape, the heightened focus on enforcement of Title IX, and the increasing complexity of sexual misconduct matters, it is more important than ever that your Title IX investigators are well trained.

Join us for an in-depth training specifically designed for Title IX/VAWA investigators. The benefits of our training extend beyond merely satisfying your annual training requirements. Our training is conducted by higher education attorneys who regularly advise institutions on all aspects of the sexual misconduct process, from policy drafting through the final resolution of sexual misconduct matters. Because these attorneys also have extensive experience investigating sexual misconduct cases for institutions, this training incorporates firsthand, real-world experience and provides practical guidance on navigating the complex issues that arise during this process.

This session will also specifically address the impact and challenges of trauma in investigating allegations of sexual misconduct. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to put their training into action as they work together to investigate a complex sexual misconduct case and receive valuable, in-the-moment feedback from higher education attorneys.

Attendees will receive a certificate verifying their completion of the training session.
