Justin Dillon Discusses Title IX Enforcement at Harvard Law School Bicentennial

On October 27, 2017, Kaiser Dillon partner Justin Dillon took part in Harvard Law School’s bicentennial celebration, joining Supreme Court Justices, Senators, and a former Attorney General among the speakers at the historic event.

The centerpiece of a year-long celebration, the “HLS in the World” summit was conceived as a forum for “exploring big ideas” and “address[ing] the hard questions.”

Dillon, an HLS alumnus who has gained national prominence representing students accused in campus disciplinary processes, was the only defense practitioner selected for a panel entitled “Perspectives on Title IX Enforcement on Campus.”

Alongside five Harvard Law professors and a victims’ rights activist, Dillon discussed the importance of fair procedures during on-campus investigations and common shortcomings he has seen in the dozens of such cases he has handled nationwide.

Participants at the event included current and former Supreme Court Justices (Neil Gorsuch, Elena Kagan, David H. Souter, Stephen G. Breyer, Anthony M. Kennedy, and Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.), Senators (Elizabeth Warren, Tom Cotton, and Tim Kaine), and former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
