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

 

If you're a student at a college or university in Oklahoma and you find yourself facing a Title IX hearing, it's critical to take necessary steps well in advance of the Title IX hearing itself. At a given time during the course of the Title IX case, the school will prepare an investigation report. Prior to it being finalized, all necessary documentation, information, and evidence needs to be incorporated into that investigation report. It has to be responded to as strongly and as effectively as possible, at an absolute minimum. For example, relevant text messages, pictures, videos, social media posts, witness statements, forensic evaluation, a polygraph examination, a toxicology report if consent is an issue. All of that evidence and documentation would need to be included in a final investigation report because once finalized, it's presented to the hearing panel and reviewed by the hearing panel in advance of the hearing itself, so the hearing panel has a strong sense of the case before the hearing even takes place.

Attacking an accuser's credibility is key throughout the course of a Title IX case, especially at a hearing. So questions would have to be prepared to address to the accuser and their witnesses and accused. And, the accused witnesses would have to be prepped and prepared accordingly for any and all scenarios that could take place during the course of the hearing. Any potential pitfalls and missteps would have to be considered and planned in advance for. A hearing panel would have to be considered for potential conflict of interest or bias. An experienced attorney advisor who has experience in a hearing setting can help maximize the prospect of success in a Title IX case.
