How do I prepare for a Title IX hearing in North Dakota?

If you were a student at a college or university in North Dakota and you find yourself facing a Title IX hearing, it's critical to take necessary steps well in advance of the hearing itself. At a point in time during the course of the Title IX case, the school will present an investigation report prior to it being finalized and needs to be responded to as strongly and as effectively as possible. All necessary documentation, information and evidence would need to be included in the final investigation report, at an absolute minimum relevant text messages, social media posts, pictures, videos, witness statements, a toxicology report, if consent is an issue, a forensic evaluation, a polygraph examination.

Before the report is finalized it needs to be as strong as possible because once finalized it's presented to the hearing panel, the panel reviews it in advance of the hearing and has a strong sense of the case before the hearing even takes place.

Questions would have to be prepared for all parties expected to testify at the hearing. Attacking accuser's credibility is often key throughout the course of a Title IX case, including at the hearing itself. So questions would have to be prepared for the accuser and their witnesses. With that in mind, the accused and the accused witnesses, any potential expert witnesses, everybody would have to be prepped and prepared accordingly. Potential pitfalls and missteps would need to be articulated to a party so as they could be avoided during the course of the hearing, the hearing panel itself would have to be considered for any bias or potential conflict of interest. An attorney advisor can help with taking these steps both in advance and at the hearing to help maximize the prospect of success.
