Baylor University’s president, athletics director, and head football coach all resigned after being criticized by an outside law firm retained by the University for their mishandling of allegations of sex assault brought against student athletes. This webinar will make clear what Baylor and other athletics departments have gotten wrong in this area and provide a road map for athletics departments to handle Title IX matters in a manner that complies with the law and developing expectations. In addition to discussing institutional obligations with respect to sex assault, this webinar will discuss recent developments in athletics gender equity reviews and make practical recommendations on compliance in this area.

Please join attorney Scott Schneider for an invaluable session that will inform you of the potential liabilities associated with sexual assault allegations against athletes, will help you avoid areas of exposure, and will provide useful tips to help you respond to claims. Failure to fully understand Title IX’s role in athletics not only jeopardizes your athletics program itself but also your students and your entire university.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Understand institutional Title IX obligations with respect to sexual misconduct with a particular emphasis on cases involving athletics;
  • Dissect high-profile Title IX incidents involving athletics departments;
  • Review Title IX gender equity obligations and summarize recent developments in this area;
  • Understand practical steps athletics departments can take to ensure compliance with Title IX;
