A New Era for Title IX: Overview of the Department of Education’s New Regulation
On May 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education issued new regulations to supplement Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 in response to a pressing need for clarification of the gender discrimination statute that has evolved so far from its beginnings. Schools, students and faculty now find themselves on the precipice of a new era for Title IX.
This program will provide an overview of the new Title IX regulations and highlight the key differences with how Title IX has been enforced since the 2011 Dear Colleague Letter. Presented by Kimberly C. Lau, Esq., James E. Figliozzi, Esq. and Branden P. Lynn, Esq., the program will benefit attorneys who represent students, teachers and faculty, administrators, and educational institutions at both the K-12 level, and at institutions of higher education.
