Our trained and certified Title IX investigators conduct investigations at educational institutions on claims of gender discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct involving students, faculty and staff. We partner with campus Title IX administrators to ensure investigations comply with Title IX and the guidelines and timeframes mandated by the Office of Civil Rights.
A Customized Model for Conducting Sexual Misconduct Investigations
Our model for conducting civil rights investigations on the issues of gender discrimination and sexual harassment is ideal for addressing those claims at educational institutions. Our process, combined with our experience conducting hundreds of investigations, results in thorough, unbiased, prompt and reliable investigations that enable institutions to meet their obligations under Title IX.
Critical Knowledge of Sexual Misconduct Issues
Our attorneys have received training on the complex issues that arise in sexual misconduct investigations including: trauma informed interviewing, affirmative consent and the role of drugs or alcohol, and cultural awareness of the impact of sexual misconduct. We assess credibility and make detailed findings of events so your organization can take effective remedial action.
Investigation Support and Review
We also provide external support and review for when you need objective, critical, and constructive feedback on your organization’s Title IX investigation process or on a high-profile investigation.
