UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES

Universities and colleges – publicly-funded institutions of higher learning that operate within a statutory framework – generate a myriad of unique legal issues that our lawyers deal with on a regular basis. As large entities, serving thousands of students, and employing hundreds of faculty and staff, the issues that universities and colleges raise vary from a need to protect valuable intellectual property, to an obligation to respond to human rights issues, to procedural issues concerning the conduct of an academic hearing. Our lawyers have a thorough understanding of these issues, born of years of experience in acting for universities and colleges, as well as in teaching as adjunct faculty at these institutions and sitting as members on their governing bodies.
