NYT Panel: Campus Assault

NYT Panel: Campus Assault

Deborah Tuerkheimer and Associate Reporter Erin Murphy engage in discussion during a project meeting. 

Gina Maisto Smith, a partner with Pepper Hamilton, and Deborah Tuerkheimer, Professor of Law at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, spoke at the New York Times Higher Ed Leaders Forum on June 21, 2016. They were joined by moderator Stephanie Saul, Higher Education Reporter at The New York Times, to discuss the topic "Legal, Moral and Traumatic: Sexual Assault on Campus."

The panel acknowledged that assault procedures that are currently in place vary from one university to the next, and that they are striving to “hone in on the right procedures,” particularly “procedures for notice and the full and fair opportunity to be heard.” 

Professor Tuerkheimer is an ALI member who also serves on the Members Consultative Group for the Model Penal Code: Sexual Assault and Related Offenses project.
