Mon, 09 Oct 2017 14:47:30 +0000

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos rescinded the Obama-era guidelines for how colleges investigate sexual misconduct complaints, saying she wanted to ensure equal justice to both the victim and the accused.

This hour, we’ll discuss the Department of Education changes to how colleges handle sexual assault complaints and the effect it will have on victims and the accused. Marty’s guests are JEANNIE SUK GERSEN, Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, and NEENA CHAUDHRY, director of education and senior counsel at the National Women’s Law Center.
