36th Annual National Conference on Law and Higher Education

Commitment to Compliance — Gathering to Meet the Challenges of Rapidly Expanding
Regulation and External Accountability

Feb. 12-16, 2015 - Hilton Orlando, Florida


Higher education operates in a new era of federal (and state) regulation. We expect regulatory interventions to grow, and become even more complex in the coming months and years. In February 2015, national leading experts on higher education are gathering in Orlando, Florida, at the National Conference on Law and Higher Education to meet the challenges of rapidly expanding regulation and external accountability. From rigorous boot camps, to workshops, intensive sessions and more, attendees will interact and collaborate with peers and national experts, and learn more about critical topics in the new law and policy climate.

We listened carefully to your feedback and have redesigned this year’s event to offer numerous intensive workshops on critical topics such as Title IX compliance, litigation update, disability law, care teams, and more. We have tapped the nations leading experts on higher education law and policy to lead these intensive workshops (view Speakers to see the list of confirmed speakers). This is a year to get to work and to examine, in depth, the critical topics related to the new law and policy climate. As always our event — designed by and for educators, attorneys, and administrators — will be an ambitiously interdisciplinary, extremely rigorous and collaborative learning experience.
