Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP will present a complimentary webinar on how to conduct investigations into complaints of sexual assault and other civil rights violations in educational institutions.
The webinar will be Tuesday, Nov. 11, at 1 p.m. Eastern time.
On its website, the firm says that, for colleges, universities and school districts, mishandling sexual assault or harassment investigations can jeopardize student safety and lead to government scrutiny and public relations nightmares. The pressures faced by schools to get these investigations right are mounting as media attention grows.
Hinshaw partner Lora Zimmer, a trained Title IX investigator, will lead the webinar.
The program will cover:
- Title IX overview
- Best practices for handling civil rights investigations
- Standards of proof
- Interview skills
- Patterns of behavior of victims and offenders
- Confidentiality issues
