2015 March CLE Workshop

The Roosevelt Hotel | Hosted By: National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA)


Institutions continue to grapple with the changing landscape of discrimination laws affecting higher education. Sexual misconduct remains a top concern, with the Department of Education Office for Civil Right's April 2014 Questions and Answers generating questions about effective investigative models and the intersection of Campus SaVE and Title IX in the employment context. As technology continues to advance, its impact on discrimination laws continues to increase—from Americans with Disabilities Act to cyberspace bullying and harassment to the ethics of e-discovery. This in-depth workshop will examine these and other key issues and developments you need to know to advise and represent your higher education client in discrimination cases. Analysis of recent case law and regulations will be combined with practical strategies and advice on how institutions can avoid discrimination claims and liability.

In addition to regular sessions, the program includes two sets of discussion group sessions, allowing participants to exchange ideas, pose questions, and share experiences and solutions with colleagues in a small-group setting. Discussion group topics will include retaliation claims and whistleblowing, pregnancy accommodation and discrimination, immigration, and imposing sanctions for sexual misconduct violations, among others.

Please join your colleagues in New Orleans for this opportunity to learn from experts and discuss areas of common concern.
