Do I need to confirm the record and document everything in a Title IX case?

Yes, the record needs to be confirmed and everything should be documented in a Title IX case. It's best practice that correspondence and communications with the school be at the Title IX office, the school's attorney or office of general counsel investigators. It's best if most of those communications take place via email. Of course, some communications would have to take place say via phone or video or in person, but overall, the record needs to be protected. It needs to be documented at schools. They're often in a rush to judgment. They do not have an accused student's rights and interests in mind, and at times, unfortunately, they do not play by their own rules. So it's important that everything be documented in case there is the unfortunate result of a finding of responsibility where steps can be taken to address the matter, and having a protected record as to what took place and what did not take place is key at that point. An experienced attorney advisor can help protect your rights.
