ABA Recommends Due Process Protections in Campus Sex Assault Investigations

Both the accused and the accuser should have due process protections when colleges and universities resolve allegations of campus misconduct. Both parties should receive written notice before a formal investigation begins, both parties should be allowed to participate in an investigation, both parties should be allowed to review a school’s initial investigative report and to respond to the final report, and both parties should have a right to appeal, according to the report by the ABA Criminal Justice Section’s Task Force on College Due Process Rights and Victim Protection.
