If you're a student at a college or university in Alabama and you find yourself facing a Title IX hearing, it's critical to take the necessary steps in advance of the hearing and at the hearing itself. At a time prior to the hearing, a student will be provided with the investigation report. The investigation report has to be responded to before it's finalized as effectively and as comprehensively as possible. That includes all necessary evidence, documentation, information. It can include potentially a toxicology report, a forensic evaluation for the hearing itself. The necessary witnesses would need to be determined in advance. The necessary questions for the accuser and for any witnesses would have to be prepared. The necessary witnesses would also have to plan on being present, not the state where maybe obvious. The hearing panel itself, whether it's one person or a panel of people that are going to be proceeding over the hearing-- presiding over the hearing, would have to be determined if there's any conflicts of interest or any, say, undue bias. Opening statements and closing statements would also have to be prepared. There's many, many, many steps that have to be taken so that a Title IX hearing goes as smoothly as possible, and the prospect of success is maximized.
