Joshua Adam Engel wrote an article in the March 2015 issue of Fraternal Law on Title IX and Campus Sexual Assault Investigations.
In the article, Engel notes:
“As attorneys, we have been approached by dozens of students from schools across the nation facing disciplinary proceedings. Most of these matters have been resolved quietly; some have led to litigation. What they all have in common is that the students believe that the procedures did not afford them fundamental fairness.”
Engel later suggests that a full and fair process need not resemble criminal trials and all rights guaranteed by the Constitution in a criminal trial need to be present. However, “a full and fair process that allows students a meaningful opportunity to be heard prior to the imposition of sanctions should include number of traditional and time-tested protections that lead to reliable outcomes.”
Joshua Adam Engel has represented a significant number of students in both school disciplinary investigations and school disciplinary proceedings. A sample of other media coverage can be found here.
