32nd Annual National Conference on Law and Higher Education

Higher Education in Transition: Responsibilities, Challenges and Opportunities

Now in its 32nd year, the award winning National Conference will provide attendees with an unparalleled interactive interdisciplinary law and policy conference experience. The need for collaborative interdisciplinary conference experience has never been greater. Higher education is undergoing major transitions on a number of fronts, with major new legal responsibilities, greater challenges and, yes, tremendous opportunities. Attendees can expect what the National Conference has become famous for -- cutting-edge thematic sessions with nationally known and expert presenters, information and prognostication about trends in higher education, and of course, up to the minute professional updates on key topics.

The 2011 National Conference will also serve as a major policymaking, scholarship, networking and higher education leadership event, bringing together policymakers, college presidents and provosts, top administrators, risk managers, attorneys, educators and others in an intensely interactive learning forum. The National Conference provides a unique opportunity for attendees to retreat, learn, share and reflect with other leaders in higher education and to return home to their work empowered with the latest and best information, and new friends and allies.

The National Conference is not just a place where leaders come to learn about law and policy developments. The National Conference is often where legal reform begins and new policies and approaches develop. Don't miss this opportunity to come to the National Conference and participate in the process of reforming higher education in this historic time of transition!
