Title IX investigators are responsible for investigating allegations of sexual misconduct on college and university campuses. At this time of heightened awareness and regulatory requirements, institutions of higher education must train their Title IX investigators to conduct thorough, fair, and professional investigations of sex and gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence, all in a manner consistent with applicable law and institutional policies.
We invite your Title IX investigation professionals to join Husch Blackwell’s Higher Education team for a full day of in-depth training focused on applicable laws governing institutional response to sexual misconduct, the components of an effective investigation, investigation techniques, and effective methods for documenting and adjudicating sexual misconduct complaints.
This course is taught by experienced higher education attorneys who advise clients on a daily basis with respect to addressing and investigating sexual misconduct. It will include both traditional presentations and interactive sessions and offer up-to-date information on responding to sexual misconduct in a manner that ensures compliance.
