Decision Makers and Hearing Officers
Our experts utilize their extensive hearing and trial experience to ensure fair, reliable, and comprehensive proceedings for all types of misconduct matters. Title IX hearings under the new Department of Education regulations are complex and high-pressure for all involved. They require a hearing chair who is intimately familiar with relevant Title IX law and campus policy, is an expert in evidentiary rules, and is able to successfully oversee hearings with the appropriate temperament.
Dan Schorr, LLC provides skilled Title IX professionals to serve as single-person decision makers, three-person hearing panels, or hearing chairs that serve with a client’s internal panelists. Prior to the hearing, we review client policies and procedures, examine the investigation report, and lead pre-hearing conferences with the parties, advisors, Title IX coordinator, legal counsel, and any other relevant individuals. We then manage all questioning and evidentiary rulings at the hearing, conduct panel deliberation, reach a finding utilizing the applicable standard of proof, and write a substantive, evidence and policy-based notice of determination, including recommended sanctions and remedies.
