Mending a Flawed System: SAVE Announces Teleconference on ‘Campus Sexual Assault:

Reforming the Campus Adjudication System’ – Friday, April 28, 1:00pm ET

WASHINGTON / April 24, 2017 – Following the recent release of three independent reports calling for widescale reforms how colleges should handle sexual assault cases, SAVE is announcing an upcoming teleconference on Reforming the Campus Adjudication System. All three reports document how the current system of campus disciplinary committees is shortchanging identified victims and accused students, thus placing college administrators in an untenable situation.

The teleconference will be held on Friday, April 28, 1:00 – 2:00pm Eastern time. The teleconference is available at no charge.

The teleconference will highlight the perspectives and recommendations from recent reports by the American College of Trial Lawyers, Stop Abusive and Violent Environments, and the NCHERM Group:

  1. American College of Trial Lawyers: Position Statement Regarding Campus Sexual Assault Investigations: https://www.actl.com/library/white-paper-campus-sexual-assault-investigations
  2. SAVE: Six-Year Experiment in Campus Jurisprudence Fails to Make the Grade: http://www.saveservices.org/reports/
  3. NCHERM Group: Due Process and the Sex Police: https://www.ncherm.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/TNG-Whitepaper-Final-Electronic-Version.pdf

The format will consist of a series of short presentations, followed by audience questions. The teleconference will be moderated by Cynthia Garrett, Esq.

The teleconference is open to state and federal lawmakers, media representatives, college administrators, and others.
