Social Media: A Legal Primer for Schools

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 (2pm - 3pm US/Eastern)


Rapidly evolving social media technology profoundly impacts schools in new and challenging ways, leaving decision makers reeling over, among other things, social media policies and enforcement. This one-hour webinar, designed for heads of school and policymakers, will provide a framework for creating appropriate, effective, and legal policies for faculty and student social media use as well as suggestions for addressing problems when they arise.

Jarvis V. Hollingsworth - Jarvis heads Bracewell & Giuliani's Education Law practice group and his practice primarily involves counseling boards of trustees and senior administration of public and private educational entities on their duties, governance and trustee liability matters. He also advises clients on government strategies, employment contracts, grievances, employee terminations, school and college governance, coalition building, strategic communications and policy development.

Kristin L. Smith - Kristin is a member of Bracewell & Giuliani's Education Law group, focusing her practice primarily on independent and private schools. She assists schools in a variety of areas, including: faculty, staff and student contract drafting; handbook and policy drafting; policy enforcement, including faculty and student discipline and separation; governance; and litigation, arbitration and mediation. Married to a Head of School, Kristin's professional and personal experience give her a unique perspective when counseling independent and private schools.
