Best For: Higher Education

Colleges need to better understand their legal obligations when students complain of sexual harassment or sexual abuse. Having a step-by-step plan will ensure that you are best able to defend your school’s actions and that you are able to avoid liability for a failure to comply with your legal obligations. Too many colleges and higher education institutions get this one wrong. Don’t let that happen to you.

Please join Melissa Fleischer for an informative, step-by-step guide for responding to and investigating claims that students have been harassed or sexually abused on campus. This webinar will also explain the proposed rules from the Department of Education’s Betsy DeVos on sexual assault under Title IX and help you understand how those rules differ significantly from the current rules. We will also discuss when the new rules will become effective.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Better understand your college’s legal obligations under Title IX to address sexual harassment and sexual assault on campus
  • Be prepared with a step-by-step guide to help you know how to respond to sexual harassment or sexual assault complaints from start to finish
  • Learn about the proposed new regulations for colleges from the Department of Education and what changes these would make for your school
  • Understand the changes in Betsy DeVos’s proposed rules on Title IX and Sexual Assault and when they may become effective
  • Learn about the rights of the complainant as well as the accused 
  • Understand how best to prevent legal liability for your college
