The program will be presented by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (NJICLE). Ms. Lucey, Ms. Hinton and Ms. Hsieh will be joined for this presentation by Jennifer J.

On August 14, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education’s long-awaited final regulations regarding sexual harassment under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 went into effect. These new regulations have a significant impact on the manner in which educational institutions investigate and address claims of sex discrimination and harassment. These investigations and claims must be handled keeping Title VII in mind. This presentation features both the perspective of university representatives and Title IX plaintiffs’ counsel.
Topics to be addressed include:
- An overview of Title IX’s new regulations
- New developments under the Biden Administration
- An overview of Title VII and Higher Education
- The overlap and interplay between Title IX and Title VII in Higher Education
