In this two-day training, Bernstein Shur education attorneys and certified Title IX Workplace and Campus Investigators, Kai McGintee, Sara Hellstedt, Amber Attalla and Abbey Greene Goldman will provide a comprehensive training program on best practices for conducting thorough, equitable, fact-based Investigations in educational settings. This broad-based training will cover investigations of discrimination and harassment complaints, as well as sexual misconduct complaints. Additionally, the training will provide a detailed review of the new Title IX regulations and how they will affect the investigation process in educational institutions.

  • Making sound credibility assessments and drafting clear, precise findings in a report
  • How to collect, understand, interpret, and manage evidence
