On May 6, the Department of Education published its long-anticipated, comprehensive final TitleIX Rules in a 2,033-page document. The changes are significant.It took nearly a year and a half for the department’s Officefor Civil Rights, or OCR, to review more than 124,000 public comments on theissue and finalize the proposed regulations, which were published in November2018. This drastic change in direction fromprevious years makes a strong for making clarifications and changes, and somefeel those impending proposals force schools to put the rights of the accusedon par with the rights of the complainant. These provisions, such as requiringschools to allow cross-examination, differ greatly fromthe previous administration and have a far reaching impact on higher educationcampuses across the country in the coming years.The DOE changes ask institutionsto decide if they want to use the lowest standard of proof, called“preponderance of evidence,”or the higher “clear and convincing” standard, aslong as it is consistently applied in all matters of misconduct.

These standards are due to become law on August 14th, in the middle of a pandemic and just in time for classes to begin.
