How do I prepare for a Title IX hearing in South Carolina?

 

If you're a student that attends a college or university in South Carolina and you're facing a Title IX hearing, it's important to take necessary steps as early as possible in advance of the Title IX hearing. At a point in time during the course of the Title IX case, the school will prepare an investigation report. That report needs to be responded to as strongly and as comprehensively as possible. All relevant documentation, information and evidence needs to be included in the final report. Text messages, social media posts, pictures, videos, phone logs, witness statements, a forensic evaluation, a polygraph examination, a toxicology report, if consent is an issue. The report needs to be as strong as possible because the report once finalized is 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 takes place.

Attacking the accusers and the accuser's witnesses credibility is key. So questions need to be prepared with that in mind. An accused party needs to be prepped for any potential missteps and pitfalls that can take place during a Title IX hearing. The panel itself has to be considered for potential bias and conflict. An opening and closing statement has to be prepared. There's many steps that need to be taken to ensure a fair and favorable process. An experienced attorney advisor can help.
