News & Insight

Please Join Me At APSCU from June 2-4, 2015

I will be presenting on two topics at the Association for Private Sector Colleges and Universities Annual Convention and Expo: Outcomes 2025 – being held at the Denver Convention Center from June 2nd to the 4th. On Tuesday, I will be presenting “Title IX, the Clery Act and the Violence Against Women Act” which addresses the concerns about which auditors and CPAs that work with Title IV eligible schools must be aware involving those statues and the recent regulatory developments related to sexual harassment.

On Wednesday, together with colleagues Tim Hatch and Jim Zelenay of Gibson Dunn, Tony Guida of Duane Morris, and Dave Adams, the General Counsel & Senior Vice President, Global Regulatory and Government Affairs of Kaplan, Inc., we will present “Government Regulators & New Theories of Liability: Threat, Menace, Or Much Ado About Nothing?“. My specific presentation will concern the new issue of student loan discharge associated with state law violations committed by Title IV institutions. Its an area in great flux, but could present a significant issue for schools given the Department of Education’s ability to seek recoupment of any discharged loan funds from the institutions involved.

Lastly, on Thursday, together with my colleague Katherine Brodie of Duane Morris, I will present Title IX and Clery Act for Career Schools. This is a broader discussion then the one for the auditors and raises a number of issues for schools.

I hope to see you there.
