  3. Title IX Writing

Title IX Writing

The parties and witnesses have been interviewed, and other evidence has been collected and reviewed.  As the investigator, your next step is to prepare a written report that lays out the facts for multiple audiences – the parties, campus administrators and possibly legal counsel and the courts. You may also be required to prepare written analyses and findings related to the allegations.

If the complaint goes to a hearing, a campus hearing officer will likely need to write a decision that explains the outcome to the parties, their counsel, and others involved in the grievance process.

For many Title IX professionals, writing an investigative report or drafting well-reasoned findings or a hearing decision is the most difficult part of the job.

An extension of our Essentials program, this one-day online workshop relies on the same case study introduced in Essentials, although attendance at Essentials is not a prerequisite. While this program focuses on Title IX processes, anyone working on investigations in the workplace or campuses would benefit from this program.

Taught by T9 faculty Liz Paris and Eli Makus, this writing workshop will give you the tools and techniques to achieve clear, concise, and well-organized written reports and findings.  Drawing on their vast experience managing investigations and conducting campus hearings, Liz and Eli dive into the analytical process that is fundamental to good writing.

Addressing the specific challenges of Title IX complaints, this program covers:

  • Neutral language and terminology
  • What to include and what to delete
  • Relevance and how it informs the writing process
  • Material disputed and undisputed facts
  • Credibility factors and writing a credibility assessment
  • Elements of a reasoned analyses or decision that draws upon policy language
Liz Paris and Eli Makus, Senior Trainers with T9 Mastered, have taught report writing to hundreds of investigators. They are two of the expert T9 faculty who present our Title IX report writing segment.
The next Report Writing Workshop will be September 21 Online
