What to Expect at a Hearing

With courtroom elements becoming increasingly embedded in Title IX hearings, investigators should expect to address questions at hearings that look at the decisions they made while the investigation was underway. Areas of inquiry might include the scope of the investigation, witness lists, language in investigative reports, document collection, and other details of the investigation.

In this segment, Liz Paris provides an overview of Title IX hearings, discussing both in-person and remote formats, and helps participants understand what to expect. Liz also looks at the Case Study that unfolded during the Essentials training from the perspective of a hearing officer, weighing the evidence to see whether the complaint was substantiated.

Liz has provided training  to hundreds of campus investigators regarding how to conduct effective investigations that focus on ensuring a process that is fair and thorough.
