This symposium talk addresses the role of due process and other formal legal concepts relating to procedural justice that have arisen in the national #MeToo conversation. As questions of due process are becoming increasingly detached from their formal legal settings and often applied unreflexively - and to my mind often inappropriately - to non-legal settings, this talk provides lawyers, citizens, and commenters the tools to intervene in the #MeToo conversation and help craft and reinforce more appropriate fairness norms in non-legal settings.

Keywords: #MeToo, Sexual Harassment, Due Process, Title IX, Title VII
