The Legal Insurrection Foundation is excited to announce our next (and last panel for a least until after the election) virtual panel — Due Process on Campus: What’s Next? 

In this installation, we’re thrilled to host Professor KC Johnson, whose coverage of the Duke Lacrosse case was legendary. Joining him is Samantha Harris, Esq. who is of counsel to the firm of Mudrick & Zucker and is also a Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. Legal Insurrection’s Professor Jacobson will join the panel and I’ll be hosting.

This will be a closed event and pre-registration is required. Log-in information will be sent via email to all registrants prior to the event. The event is sponsored by the Legal Insurrection Foundation and attendance is free of charge.

More about the event:

Join Professors William Jacobson and KC Johnson, and Samantha Harris, of counsel to the firm of Mudrick & Zucker and Senior Fellow of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), for a riveting and lively discussion on the current state and future of due process in higher education, hosted by the Legal Insurrection Foundation’s Kemberlee Kaye.

The lack of due process in the campus disciplinary process, particularly for males accused of sexual harassment or assault, has generated increasing attention and lawsuits. There have been significant court rulings in the past year, plus regulatory reform from the U.S. Department of Education, which have changed the legal landscape. In this panel discussion, we will discuss the current state of the law, and what can be expect depending on election result.
