Consumer Protection and Higher Education Webinar

Join the Center for Excellence in Higher Education Law and Policy on Thursday, April 24, 2014 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. in the Faculty Conference Room
Roughly every two seconds, a new civil lawsuit is filed in the United States, and a growing number of them are targeting colleges and universities. This increase in litigation is often attributed to the growing influence of student consumerism, with students trying to make sure their degrees are worth the debt they acquire in earning them.
Learn how to reduce your institution’s legal risk with Consumer Protection and Higher Ed: Six Liability Concerns, presented by Catherine Deneke and Robert Toone from Foley Hoag LLP.
Drawing on their combined expertise and experience, Ms. Deneke and Mr. Toone will help you learn:
  • How to comply with legal and regulatory requirements
  • What disclosures you are required to make
  • How your educational mission and sovereign immunity can strengthen your liability defenses
  • Which training and supervisory techniques will help prevent litigation
  • How to evaluate your school’s policies and procedures to reduce risk
Lawsuits can be expensive, can result in negative press, and can carry substantial financial risk.
*1.0 CLE credit has been applied for in Florida and Wisconsin.
