How do I prepare for a Title IX hearing in Arizona?

 

If you're a student at a college or university in Arizona and you find yourself facing a Title IX hearing, many steps have to be taken to try to maximize success at a hearing. Prior to the hearing itself, an investigation report will be provided by the school. It needs to be responded to as effectively and as comprehensively as possible before it's finalized. That investigation report will go to the hearing panel and will be reviewed in advance of a hearing. So, if a toxicologist report, for example, or a forensic evaluation needs to be presented, it would need to be done so as early as possible prior to the hearing. With respect to the hearing itself, the necessary witnesses would have to be considered.

Questions would have to be drafted for the accusers, witnesses, and the accuser. Questions would have to be drafted for the accused and the accused witnesses. The hearing panel itself, whether it's one person or a panel of people, if there is any conflict of interest or bias that would have to be considered, the school would have to be let know if that is the case. Opening and closing statements would have to be drafted in advance of the hearing, although closing statement itself often would be in part completed upon the hearing itself. Many steps have to be taken to try to maximize the success at a Title IX hearing.
