Event Description

Learn the Secrets for Effectively Managing Title IX Compliance

Title IX prohibits sexual discrimination in educational institutions receiving federal funds through the U.S. Department of Education.  It imposes important obligations on such institutions relative to policies, procedures, and programs, because students may enforce its provisions through private causes of action, the potential for liability under Title IX is significant.  Therefore, it is important for school administrators to be familiar with the statute’s provisions and the obligations they impose.  This session by James P. Evans will explain the core provisions of Title IX, detail the obligations the statute imposes on educational institutions and address significant and recurrent compliance problems, providing pragmatic measures to help ensure compliance with the statute’s mandates and the minimization of liability risk in its regard.

It’s usually the institutions that think they are doing everything right that end up on the wrong end of a Title IX lawsuit. Diligence and vigilance are needed to ensure that your institution follows the rules for Title IX compliance.

This session will bring you up-to-speed on the latest applications of the law and give you foolproof Title IX risk management strategies.

  • Help school administrators critically evaluate your institution's policies relative to compliance with Title IX
  • Provide administrators with pragmatic guidance concerning the development and implementation of policies required by Title IX
  • Provide guidance regarding the development and implementation of strategies to minimize risk concerning sexual harassment/discrimination claims
