USED’s New Title IX Rule: A Detailed Examination


Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Education released an unofficial version of its new and controversial Title IX regulation. This new rule will constitute the first significant revision of the Department’s Title IX regulations in over 40 years. Among other things, the new rule will revise the scope of a school’s responsibility for managing incidents of sex discrimination, codify procedural requirements for the resolution of Title IX complaints, and define key concepts in the law. The effective date of the new rule is August 14, 2020.

On May 20, Thompson Coburn’s Higher Education practice will offer a special, three-hour webinar examining the new regulation. During this free webinar, the presenters will walk through each element of the new rule in detail. They also will offer insight drawn from the Department’s comments, which accompanied the rule’s release. Throughout the webinar, the presenters will focus on areas of particular concern (e.g., evidentiary standard, cross-examination), and offer thoughts regarding impact and implementation of the changes.

The live presentation of this webinar was approved for 3.0 hours of general CLE credit in California and Illinois and 3.6 hours of general CLE credit in Missouri. CLE credit in Texas is pending. CLE credit is no longer available for this recording.
