VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota School of Law will host Nancy Chi Cantalupo as its guest speaker for Constitution Day on Sept. 17.
“We are very excited to host Professor Cantalupo for Constitution Day,” said Tiffany Graham, associate dean of academic affairs at the USD School of Law.
Cantalupo is an associate professor of law at Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law and is a nationally recognized expert on gender-based violence in educational settings. Her lecture is titled, “Due Process and the Civil Rights Approach to Gender-Based Violence.”
“As universities grapple with the obligation under Title IX to investigate claims of gender-based violence, a number of hard questions have arisen over time – in particular, questions about the scope of the due process protection that should be embedded within these inquiries,” said Graham. “Professor Cantalupo will tackle some of these questions and offer her perspective on how schools might answer them. We look forward to an engaging community debate.”
The lecture will be located in the School of Law Courtroom at 12 p.m.
