SE Higher Education Law 301: Title IX and OCR Considerations for Higher Education institutions
May 10, 2016

The Higher Education Practice of Saul Ewing LLP invites you to attend our new educational CLE series CYCLE by Saul – Covering Your Campus’s Legal Education. CYCLE by Saul provides regularly occurring legal education courses to in-house counsel and senior management of higher education institutions. Our CYCLE by Saul series covers a broad range of core topics from Title IX to intellectual property.

This two-pronged, interactive course designed for higher education in-house counsel and senior management will explore lessons learned in Title IX lawsuit cases, as well as the nuts and bolts of an OCR investigation. 

The threat of litigation looms for any higher education institution adjudicating a sexual misconduct charge through its internal disciplinary proceedings, regardless of the proceeding’s outcome. Indeed, both complainant- and respondent-driven lawsuits have increased in recent years. A close examination of those lawsuits highlights certain trends. This presentation, led by James D. Taylor, Jr. and Christina D. Riggs, will explore those trends and offer practical guidance on how to best defend against an anticipated (or filed) lawsuit against your institution.

The second half of this course, led by James A. Keller and Joshua W.B. Richards, will provide a step-by-step, practical overview of what happens at a higher education institution from the moment you receive a letter from OCR until the matter is closed: who, when, what, and more. This presentation will provide attendees with a playbook for in-house counsel and senior management, should OCR come to your campus.

This discussion will be held at Saul Ewing’s Philadelphia office, 1500 Market Street, 38th floor, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The event begins with registration and a continental breakfast at 8:00 a.m. The presentations begin at 8:15 and conclude at 10:15 a.m.
