If you're a student at a college or university in Delaware and you find yourself facing a Title IX hearing, it's critical to take the necessary steps as well as possible in advance of the hearing. Prior to the hearing itself, the school will provide an investigation report. It needs to be responded to as effectively as possible prior to it being finalized. All necessary documentation, evidence, information has to be included in that final investigation report. They could include, for example, toxicology reports, forensic evaluations. The hearing panel itself will review that investigation report prior to the hearing, so it's critical that that be as strong as possible in a party's favor.
For the hearing itself, opening and closing statements have to be drafted. Questions for all witnesses, be it the accuser or the accused, they're witnesses. Any potential expert witnesses, they would all have to be prepared. The hearing panel itself, if it's one person or a panel of people, if there's any conflict or bias, that would have to be considered. Many, many steps have to be taken to ensure the prospect of success at a Title IX hearing.
