It has been a busy couple of years for higher education discrimination law. The U.S. Supreme Court has taken on or decided several cases related to race-conscious admissions, religious liberties, LGBTQ+ rights, women’s rights, and even a case that calls into question executive authority to regulate under the civil rights laws. District and appellate courts have explored the contours of academic freedom, the authority of states to restrict instruction on critical race theory, and the intersection of speech and harassment. Congress has passed a law that enshrines protections for same-sex and interracial marriages. And government regulators have issued or proposed rules and guidance on sexual misconduct, disability accommodations, gender identity protections, web accessibility, and more. These developments, happening against a backdrop of unprecedented political polarization, have created numerous challenges for counsel as they advise campus clients.
Join us in San Diego for a 2-day Workshop on the evolution of higher education discrimination law, where panelists will discuss legal developments, operational considerations, and practical advice related to:
- Faculty diversity and discrimination,
- Bias incident response,
