Workshop: “Best Practices and Common Errors in Investigation”
OIG partner Alezah Trigueros will participate on the workshop panel “Best Practices and Common Errors in Investigation.” She will share her knowledge as an external investigator, and will partner with an internal Title IX practitioner, a plaintiff’s attorney, and a defense attorney, to discuss different perspectives on investigating Title IX cases and avoiding common pitfalls.
In the seven years Alezah has conducted investigations, she has become known for her well-reasoned and thoughtful Title IX reports. Clients with concerns about Title IX often call OIG specifically to access Alezah’s expertise. In addition to her extensive experience, Alezah has received training certificates from the Associate of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA) and T9 Mastered to conduct Title IX investigations.
