What is next in Title IX? Will the regulations go away? The short answer is no, not immediately, as you heard from previous guests in 2020. It is a long process to undo a regulation, and that will likely take a few years, but we do anticipate movement with respect to guidance issued by the Department of Education in the meantime. As you know, the Trump administration archived all prior guidance in this space, and it is yet to be seen whether all or some of it will be resurrected or replaced with new guidance, and what the Department of Education will do with the guidance issued regarding the new regs under Trump’s DOE. Today’s episode covers what could happen if a school is not following the law, the enduring impact that Trump’s appointments may have on federal litigation, and why Title IX is about more than how a school responds to sexual harassment. Learn about the landmark decisions, cases, and executive orders that are influencing Title IX and the importance of having support from and working closely with your colleagues, as well as taking care of yourself in these trying times. Tune in today.
