Understanding Your Institution’s Legal Liability Under Consumer Protection

For a higher education institution, there is no such thing as a nuisance lawsuit—and although public attention has focused on the growing federal and state scrutiny of for-profit colleges, nonprofit schools are not exempt from legal challenges.

Colleges and universities of all kinds are facing an increasing number of consumer protection lawsuits for everything from a student’s inability to find a job to grade disputes to disciplinary procedures.

Growing concern about the student loan crisis is responsible for some of this litigation, as is the growing influence of the consumer model of higher education.

All of it is important.

Learn how to reduce your institution’s legal risk with Consumer Protection and Higher Ed: Six Liability Concerns, a Magna Online Seminar presented by Catherine Deneke and Robert Toone, two professionals from the law firm Foley Hoag.

Drawing on their combined expertise and experience, Deneke and Toone help you learn:

  • How to better assess the risk of litigation for your institution
  • How to avoid undermining your institution’s legal defenses
  • How to limit your exposure to litigation and liability

All lawsuits can be expensive and can result in negative press. Some can carry substantial financial risk. Order today to learn how to protect your institution!
