Rights group updates model legislation for campus sexual assault

Article here. Excerpt:

'Last year, a group dedicated to ensuring all students have rights on college campuses proposed model legislation that detailed how universities should handle accusations of sexual assault. Now, eight months later, the group has revised the model legislation following recent events surrounding the issue.

The group, known as Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE), has been advocating protection of due process rights for accused students for years, and have most recently pushed Gail Heriot, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, to lead the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights, which oversees sexual assault policies.'
