Whether you work for or represent an organization dealing with a claim, when a complaint crosses your desk, knowing what to do and when is critical. No two sexual assault claims are the same. Institutional obligations will vary widely, depending on the circumstances of each claim. In this session, experienced faculty will walk you through an institution’s post-allegation obligations so that you have the information you need to effectively manage your organization’s response.

  • A guide to investigations: best practices in executing the investigation and examples of what not to do
  • Understanding if and when you need to take next steps
  • Best practices and obligations with respect to the complainants’ safety
  • Identifying if and how to implement measures to protect others
