Ballard Spahr is pleased to continue its Hot Topics in Higher Education Webinar Series in 2017—kicking off on January 17—and continuing monthly throughout the year. Please join us for the first program featuring some of the most important issues currently facing General Counsel.

Topics will include:

  • The continued threat of litigation or governmental investigations facing educational institutions regarding the accessibility of their websites, course materials, and learning management systems.
  • ERISA fiduciary rules and their application to the retirement plans of higher education institutions, as well as best practices to minimize breach of fiduciary duty exposure—important issues following the suits brought against major universities in 2016.
  • Trending cybersecurity and privacy issues in higher education, and steps colleges and universities can take to address them.

Additional information about the remaining programs for the 2017 series and registration links for future programs will be posted regularly here.
