Conrad O’Brien Co-Authors FIRE’s ‘Practitioner’s Guide’ for Attorneys Handling Title IX Cases

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has announced the release of its “Title IX Hearings and Litigation: A Practitioner’s Guide,” co-authored by Co-Chair of the Title IX and Campus Discipline practice Patricia Hamill and KaiserDillon PLLC partner Justin Dillon. This guide provides students — as well as their advisors and attorneys — with practical, accessible information distilled from expert litigators’ experience on campus and in court. Lorie Dakessian, Co-Chair of the Conrad O’Brien Title IX and Campus Discipline practice also contributed to the guide based on her own years of experience doing Title IX work.

“We are pleased that FIRE asked us to be part of drafting this important guide based on our years of experience representing hundreds of students and faculty nationwide,” said Hamill. “We are hopeful the guide proves a valuable resource, and we are honored to be asked to contribute to FIRE’s efforts to champion the individual rights of students and faculty.”

Hamill and Dillon, two of the nation’s leading Title IX lawyers, are members of FIRE’s Legal Network, an association of volunteer attorneys who advocate the defense of student and faculty rights. Learn more about the Practitioner’s Guide.
