Hartford, CT (PRWEB) August 25, 2014
Robinson+Cole’s Education Law Group has launched a LinkedIn Group as a forum for discussions on news and legal developments affecting institutions of higher education. The group, HigherEdWire – News for legal counsel, can be found at http://www.linkedin.com/groups/HigherEdWire-News-legal-counsel-7464519.
“Colleges and universities face legal issues in a variety of areas that continually change,” said Megan R. Naughton, co-chair of the firm’s Immigration Group. “Our education team monitors the pressing developments faced by educational institutions, and we wanted to create a source to share those updates on developing stories and trends that also encourages dialogue with those in the industry. LinkedIn provides that platform.”
