Josh Richards, chair of the Firm’s Higher Education Practice, is quoted in the University of Vermont’s blog, OutReach. Josh offers his insight on the Title IX regulations and their impact on educational institutions. 

"Schools won’t be allowed to adapt to the new regulations based on the type of institution they are—or the school’s culture, size or resources. Instead, higher education institutions would have to follow very specific procedures set by the government," said Josh. "That means, for instance, having hearings with real-time evidentiary objections that are being ruled on, with reasons, by a presiding hearing officer and cross-examinations by attorneys. Schools are concerned about being forced to turn into quasi-courts."
