If you're a student at a Florida college or university and you find yourself facing a Title IX hearing, it's critical to take the necessary steps as well in advance of the hearing as possible. Prior to the hearing itself, the school will provide an investigation report. Prior to the investigation report being finalized, it's necessary that the report include all necessary documentation information evidence.

Prior to the report being finalized, everything needs to be responded to because the report itself goes to the hearing panel in advance of the hearing. For the hearing itself, the panel itself, whether it's one person or a panel of people, they would have to consider if there's any potential conflict of interest or bias, questions would need to be prepared for all parties, including the accuser or the accusers, witnesses, the accused, the accused witnesses, any potential expert witnesses if necessary, opening and closing statements would have to be prepared. Many steps have to be taken to ensure the prospect of success at a Title IX hearing in Florida.
