To Address a High-Profile Complaint, Identify a Complex Fact Pattern, or Avoid the Risk of Bias and Conflict of Interest, Look to Us
As decision-makers, we know that schools can struggle with decision-making. A professional decision-maker blends analytical skills, subject matter expertise, hearing management chops, collegiality, and strong writing. Three of those five skills won’t suffice; our decision-makers can offer you all five while ensuring good judgment, responsiveness, and transparency. An effective decision-maker must know the rules, understand the evidence, talk to lawyers and advisors, manage witnesses, and make decisions consistent with institutional culture.
Our team of experts can act as advisors to students and employees during all meetings, interviews, hearings, and appeals related to allegations of misconduct in accordance with Title IX and VAWA Section 304.
Hearing and Non-Hearing Decision-Makers, Hearing Chairs, and Hearing Officers
As impartial decision-makers, we preside over hearings related to misconduct, discrimination, and other violations of conduct codes by students or employees. When we act as Chair, you can feel confident that our work will comply with the regulations. Bring us on as your hearing officer, and we will attend pre-hearing meetings, review procedures with you, and attend multi-day hearings for you. Our rationales will provide a clear and comprehensive explanation of our reasoning, capable of withstanding appeal challenges and legal scrutiny.
