The Evolving Standard of Care for Handling Student Sexual Assault and Misconduct in the Independent School

Tuesday, February 17, 2015 (2pm - 3pm US/Eastern)


Student-on-student sexual assault is one of the most high profile issues on college campuses. The rules for handling assaults are rapidly evolving and they are filtering down to independent schools and establishing a new legal standard of care. This webinar will discuss steps independent schools should take to comply with the evolving standard of care. In addition, the speakers will offer a uniform process for developing policies that address the training, reporting, and investigation responsibilities schools should adopt for dealing with similar forms of misconduct such as hazing, bullying, and sexual molestation.

David Wolowitz is a partner McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton. He represents numerous independent schools and also provides training and consulting. David has frequently spoken at conferences of the National Association of Independent Schools and The Association of Boarding Schools.

D. Frank Vinik is an attorney and risk manager who has spent more than 20 years working with educational institutions. He frequently speaks on education law topics and is currently President of Title IX Comply, a company that provides training, risk management, and policy advice on student sexual assault issues.
