If you're a student at a college or university in Alaska and you find yourself facing a Title IX hearing there's many steps that have to be taken both in advance of the hearing and at the hearing itself. Prior to the hearing, the school will provide an investigation report. Before it's finalized all necessary documentation, evidenced information has to be included in the investigation report because that would go to the hearing panel prior to the hearing itself.
It would be reviewed by the hearing panel be it if it includes, say, a toxicologist report, forensic evaluation, anything, and everything needs to be included so that the investigation report is as complete as possible. For the hearing, opening and closing statements would have to be drafted, the necessary witnesses would have to be prepped and plan accordingly. Questions would have to be prepared for all witnesses including the accuser and the accuser's witnesses. The hearing panel itself would have to be considered if there is any undue bias or conflict of interest. Many steps have to be taken so that the prospect of success at a hearing is maximized.
