Stetson University

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. We invite you to meet the challenges that lie ahead (and seize the opportunities) by joining us from Feb. 12-16, 2015 in Orlando, Florida.

Stetson's annual National Conference on Law and Higher Education has evolved substantially this year to meet your interdisciplinary law and policy learning objectives. We are also moving to an exciting new hotel that better suits the nature and size our event. The Hilton Orlando is located at the foot of Orange County Convention Center in the heart of vibrant International Drive.

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, disabillity 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 and extremely rigorous and collaborative learning experience.
