GULFPORT, Fla. (PRWEB) January 12, 2016 -- The challenging legal landscape in higher education law and policy is the focus of Stetson University’s 37th annual National Conference on Law and Higher Education Feb. 11-15, 2016, at the Hilton Orlando. Title IX, constitutional law and compliance issues are the topics of a series of training workshops.
Higher education institutions are facing some of the greatest legal challenges since the civil rights movement with the courts and constitutional issues impacting compliance work at colleges and universities.
“Our conference participants will come away with the tools they need to adapt to the shifting legal landscape of colleges and universities,” said conference chair and Professor of Law Peter F. Lake. Professor Lake is the Charles A. Dana chair and director of Stetson’s Center for Excellence in Higher Education Law and Policy.
Stetson’s national conference, now approaching its 40th year, provides sessions for college attorneys including in house counsel and private counsel, higher education administrators and presidents. The sessions will cover a variety of topics from updates from Washington, Title IX, FERPA and disability law to investigator training.
Conference attendees will participate in boot camps, workshops, and plenary sessions. Attendees will collaborate with presenters and peers throughout the five days in Orlando, Florida.
