The length of time that a college sexual misconduct case will take will vary, but most people will not realize just how involved of an undertaking a college sexual misconduct case is. For cases that are adjudicated under the Title IX Final Rule, which went into effect on August 14, 2020, cases are expected to be resolved, which would include all steps in the process including potential appeals, within a reasonably prompt timeframe. There is no hard rule as to what a reasonably prompt timeframe would be. For cases that are adjudicated under a college's or university's sexual misconduct policy, not Title IX that is, schools will be at their discretion as to what an appropriate amount of time would be.
It's involved consideration in terms of what would be a reasonable amount of time, the timeframe can be infected by breaks in school, summer vacation, other considerations, but it's generally, it's a month-long process, it's not going to be resolved in a matter of days or even weeks. Generally, it's at least several months in most instances, it could be two months, it could be three or four, it could be longer yet. I've dealt with hundreds upon hundreds upon hundreds of cases across the United States over many years. Although many cases will be of a certain length, there's some exceptions to that, some cases can go a significantly longer period of time. It's very important that you have an experienced attorney advisor helping you throughout the process so that the case can be addressed promptly but also, and most importantly, in a person's best interest.
