This panel discussion will explore how sexual assault allegations on college campuses are investigated and adjudicated, including the role schools, law enforcement agencies and courts do and should play in handling these issues. The panel will also debate the ramifications of the 2011 "Dear Colleague Letter" issued by the Department of Education that required schools to address issues of sexual harassment and assault as part of their Title IX obligations, as well as discuss the new legislation on affirmative consent and the proliferation of Title IX cases filed in state and federal court. The panel will include Kristen Tranetzki, Angeli Ungar Law Group, who has represented students accused of sexual misconduct; Gloria Trainor, Summer Trainor PC, who has represented students who have reported sexual misconduct to their schools; and P.K. Runkles-Pearson, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn, who has advised higher education institutions on these issues.
