Legal Trends for Independent School Boards of Trustees - eSeminar with Caryn Pass
"Legal Trends for Independent School Boards of Trustees"
Wednesday, December 2 (4:00 - 5:00 pm)
Legal issues facing independent schools require an increasing amount of time and attention from school administrators as well as Trustees. As a fiduciary and trustee of the institution it is important for board members to keep abreast of the legal issues that could face the school and pose both financial and other burdens on the institution. Independent School Lawyer Caryn Pass will discuss the wide range of legal challenges confronting independent schools and pro-active strategies that can limit liability exposure. Ms. Pass will address issues including student travel, social media, intellectual property, and transgender students & employees.

A problem-solver and strategic thinker, Ms. Pass helps avoid liability in a manner consistent with school culture. Ms. Pass also designs and reviews by-laws and governance policies and works with boards to establish good governance.
