Rising Litigation and Compliance Risks Facing Higher Education

Friday, May 3
9:10 AM –10:10 AM ET

This program will explore increasing complexities facing universities as they try to identify and address existential risks before they result in multifaceted litigation, enforcement actions, and reputational risks. The panel will delve into the growing risks that face universities from international research activities, NCAA regulations, and the #MeToo movement, among other topics. Panelists will explore how universities—and in particular their legal and compliance personnel —face unique challenges in identifying and mitigating these risks because of autonomy-afforded professors, more decentralized departments, and incentive structures that differ from typical corporate organizations.
