Shipman & Goodwin attorneys Julie Fay, Bob O’Brien and Laurann Asklof will present sessions at the 2018 NAIS-TABS Legal Symposium.

Julie will present the session, “Managing Students: A Day in the Life of a Dean.”  This session will address legal issues and best practices on issues such as misuse of social media, searching student phones, vaping, and how to develop an effective and compliant student handbook. As part of this discussion, Julie will discuss challenges in developing sexual misconduct policies, addressing confidentiality issues and establishing effective adjudication process.

Bob and Laurann will present a roundtable discussion titled, “Key Considerations for School Construction Projects.”  This roundtable discussion will review school construction matters, including request for qualifications/proposals, project delivery methods, contract forms, consistency among documents, liquidated damages provisions, bonding, types of insurance, dispute resolution provisions, and risk management/mitigation.

Designed for trustees and school administrators of all kinds to learn about the pressing legal issues facing independent schools, the NAIS-TABS Legal Symposium is a unique opportunity to spend quality time with legal professionals and colleagues to dig into the concerns of the day and come away with solutions.  The Symposium will be held October 18-19 in Philadelphia, PA.
