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 214, 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of the prohibition on the use of statements from parties or witnesses who are not subject to cross-examination is no longer applicable and should not be relied on.


Under the 2020 Title IX regulations, institutions are required to hold live hearings with an opportunity for cross-examination. Further, higher education institutions are required to provide specialized training on an annual basis to individuals responsible for adjudicating matters of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking; and the Title IX regulations require decision-makers to receive training on specific topics. Whether live hearings are new for your institution or your institution has been using a hearing model, regular training for officials involved in the hearing process is essential for avoiding problems before and after a decision is rendered.

Join us for an in-depth training specifically designed for hearing officers. 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 and adjudicating sexual misconduct cases for institutions, this training incorporates firsthand, real world experience and provides practical guidance on navigating the complex issues that arise during the hearing process.

This session will also specifically address the impact and challenges of trauma in adjudicating allegations of sexual misconduct. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to put their training into action as they work together to navigate challenges that arise in a hearing and to adjudicate a complex sexual misconduct case, all while receiving valuable, in-the-moment feedback from higher education attorneys.
