Briefly 1.4 – Sexual Misconduct in Higher Education: Title IX and Campus Proceedings (Part One)

This is Part One of our three-part series discussing Title IX, and sexual misconduct proceedings on university campuses. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recently attracted controversy by rescinding the Obama administration’s guidance for how universities should handle sexual misconduct cases on their campuses. How do these proceedings function? What did the Obama administration require? Does the system work or is there a superior alternative?

We discuss these questions and more with Professor Daniel Hemel, Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Chicago, Professor Saul Levmore, William B. Graham Distinguished Service Professor of Law at the University of Chicago, Professor Laura Kipnis of Northwestern University School of Communication, and Professor Nancy Chi Cantalupo, Assistant Professor of Law at Barry University.
