  • Description: Title IX on Campus takes an area of federal regulation and examines its applicability and practical implications on the Lewis & Clark campus. Students will take a critical look at policy-making at the federal, state, and campus levels related to sex discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual misconduct, with an emphasis on fairness of process (due process principles). The course will focus on advocacy skills, including evidence review, hearing preparation, and cross-examination in live administrative hearings arising under Title IX. The course includes practical legal experience by directly involving students in campus disciplinary cases that arise under Lewis & Clark’s Sexual Misconduct policy: by serving as Advisors appointed to assist individual students (both reporting parties and respondents) in Title IX proceedings, and by preparing and providing training to campus constituents.
