    DESCRIPTION

    Join us for a unique service project, which offers CLE credits and an opportunity to help members of the community. The service project will incorporate Title IX training on serving as an advisor for university-based harassment and discrimination claims. This training will focus on Title IX related claims such as sexual harassment, sexual assault, and other types of interpersonal violence and protected class issues. The training will highlight best practices for serving in the advisor role for both complainants and respondents. Following the training, attorneys/attendees can then decide whether to serve as an advisor by communicating directly with the presenters.
