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

 

If you're a student at a college or university in Nevada and you're facing a Title IX hearing, it's critical to take necessary steps well in advance of the hearing itself. At a given time, the school will prepare an investigation report prior to it being finalized. It needs to be responded to as effectively and as strongly as possible. All necessary documentation, information and evidence will need to be included in the final investigation report.

At a minimum, it may include text messages, pictures, videos, social media posts, witness statements, a toxicology report, consent as an issue, a forensic evaluation, a polygraph examination. Once finalized it's presented to the panel and reviewed. So the hearing panel has a strong sense of the case before the hearing even takes place. Attacking the accuser's credibility at a hearing is often key. Questions would have to be prepared with that in mind for the accuser or the accuser's witnesses, the accused and the accused witnesses would also have to be prepared and prepped accordingly.

Conflict, bias of the hearing panel would have to be considered, an opening and closing statement would have to be prepared well in advance of the hearing. Many steps need to be taken both in advance and at the hearing, and an attorney advisor can help ensure a fair and favorable process.
