Nora Rohman has been an investigator at PII since 2013. Her cases have focused on campus investigations involving sexual misconduct allegations; workplace investigations into complaints of harassment, discrimination, and/or retaliation; and mitigation investigations for death penalty matters, both at the trial and appellate levels.
Since joining PII, Rohman has handled complex cases for both public- and private-sector clients, including complaints with multiple allegations, extensive document review, and numerous witness statements.
An engaging lecturer and trainer, she has given presentations to numerous groups on how to conduct effective investigations when gender identity is part of the scope. These presentations have included the annual conference of the Association of Workplace Investigators (AWI) in 2018 and an annual training for the Title IX and Equity investigators for the California State University (CSU) system in 2019. In addition, Rohman is part of the faculty of T9 Mastered, a training program for Title IX professionals. As part of this program, Rohman lectures on challenges and best approaches for interviewing students, faculty, and campus staff about sexual assault complaints, particularly when gender identity is a component of the complaint.
Rohman also has specialized knowledge in the area of sexual assault prevention education. She completed an internship at Peace Over Violence, working on interpersonal violence prevention education, and trained as a Peer Counselor at Concordia University’s 2110 Center for Gender Advocacy, including violence prevention and sex education. She also has extensive experience with education and activism in the LGBTQ community.
Rohman frequently participates in workshops, conferences, and training programs to stay current on legal developments. She completed the Investigations Training Institute for AWI and has regularly attended the annual Capital Case Defense Seminar, held by California Attorneys for Criminal Justice. She has also received training on conducting interviews using trauma-informed approaches.
Rohman earned her bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies from Concordia University in Montreal. Following this, she pursued a master’s degree in Gender Studies at New York University.
