Attorneys in the Conduct and Campus Adjudication Processes: Steps to Manage Their Participation and Mitigate Their Impact - February 28, 2017 Webinar & CD
ISBN/ISSN: PUB#AC1040 Attorneys.Conduct.Adjudication.2.28.17
The possibility of an attorney representing and participating in a student conduct case can intimidate even the most seasoned administrators and conduct board members — but it doesn’t have to. A well trained, informed and confident conduct board team or Title IX investigator can better manage attorney presence and protect the integrity of your institutional processes.
Develop student conduct code and hearing processes that ensure compliance, follow your institutions policies and utilize the “Potted Plant” rule — which has been addressed through Department of Education OCR guidance to avoid the interference of outside representation in your hearings.
Join your colleagues from across the country for an interactive webinar on the challenges and opportunities in dealing with attorneys serving as an advisor to students involved in conduct cases.
Build a solid student conduct process that mitigates attorney participation and impact, while still creating the community your institution values.

At the conclusion of the 90-minute webinar, participants will be able to:
Create innovative and engaging conduct board training processes to equip board members with the self-assurance and skills they need to circumnavigate the potential havoc an attorney may raise in a hearing.
Audit your written policies and conduct code process that won’t “trip you up” when attorneys start to parse through them. Avoid potential holes and create processes and policy beyond reproach!
Implement strategies for handling the delicate conversation that needs to take place when attorneys are present in Title IX cases and utilize an Administrative
Liaison throughout your process to guarantee adherence to College policy and mission.
Use the “Potted Plant” rule in your conduct code and hearing process to ensure fair and positive outcomes for the student involved and to empower your hearing board panel.
Identify valuable insights into the participating attorney’s goals, perspective and frustrations with college processes. Be proactive in addressing those concerns prior to it becoming a reality.
