10 Lawsuits That You May Not Be Aware Of: Protect Your Institution & Mitigate Risk – Lessons Learned - May 17, 2017 Webinar & CD
ISBN/ISSN: PUB#AC1081 Ten.Lawsuits.5.17.17
Lawsuits involving students, administrators and faculty happen. Reality dictates it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. Proactive risk management policies and procedures mitigate both the if and when and will stand up to a jury’s scrutiny, protect the integrity of your institution, and save you undo litigation.
Join our expert presenters as they share their collective experience and share an overview of cases involving Title IX, retaliation, trademark, compliance and much more!
Explore ten specific cases you may never have heard of, but could be used as precedent. Learn about those cases so you can implement changes on your own campus and update your own policies and procedures.

At the conclusion of the 90-minute webinar, participants will be able to:
Ensure your written policies are flexible yet strong enough to allow you to protect the institution’s rights — protect your trademarks, academic freedom and keep your campus safe and secure!
Create risk management strategies to mitigate the effects of bad things happening on campus or abroad — because they will — ensure you train and educate members of your community on these policies and strategies to avoid a costly mistake.
Train your administrators to be fair to each party and on all sides of the issue — juries are going to care a lot about how you treat people and whether you have demonstrated bias — don’t lose a case due to procedural error or lack of impartiality.
Understand the key tenets of what courts are looking for when determining rights, violations and liabilities — know what to expect to safeguard your institution from undo litigation.
Implement changes to your current policies based on what you learn from these 10 cases and use lessons learned from other institutions to protect your campus.
