Session 2: Identifying Legal Risk in Schools – When is it time to seek advice?
9:30am - 10:30am
Speaker: Jane Kupsch
Partner, Piper Alderman
Schools are dynamic environments in which the interests, rights, obligations and responsibilities of various individuals and groupss co-exist. Those individuals and groups include the student body, teaching staff, school leaders, administrators, governing bodies, parent groups and volunteers. Occasionally, an event that poses legal risk to some or all of those groups arises.
This session will explore, with practical examples, how schools identify and manage potential legal risks and what should be done when a potential risk materialises into threatened or actual, legal proceedings.
