New Title IX Guidance from Department of Education
In a long-anticipated move, the United States Department of Education Office for Civil Rights withdrew the Obama Administration’s 2011 Dear Colleague Letter on Sexual Violence as well as its Questions and Answers on Title IX and Sexual Violence this morning. It also issued a replacement “Q&A on Campus Sexual Misconduct” which it indicated will provide institutions with guidance on an interim basis pending the Department issuing formal regulations.
The webinar will be given by higher education legal professional Scott Schneider. Scott is a partner in the New Orleans and Houston offices of Fisher Phillips and instructor at Tulane Law School where he teaches courses on Title IX and Higher Education Law. Scott formerly served in the Office of General Counsel at Tulane University and is the head of Fisher Phillips’s Higher Education Practice Group which provides counsel and litigation support on a host of education issues for colleges and universities.
