This CYCLE by Saul Workshop consists of three presentations, each of which are designed for higher education in-house counsel and senior management. Descriptions of each presentation follow below.

Guidelines on Implementing the Updated Clery Handbook (90 minutes):

June 2016 marked the long-awaited release of the United States Department of Education’s revised Handbook for Campus Safety and Security Reporting. The heavily revised Clery Handbook introduces an array of new compliance concepts for both daily and annual Clery requirements, including an entire chapter devoted to policies, procedures, and programs regarding sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. In this interactive course, presenters discuss the practical implications of the new Handbook’s guidance and offer concise, clear, and valuable insight for incorporating the more significant changes into your existing Clery compliance programs.

Lessons Learned and Trends in Legal Rulings in Respondent Title IX Litigation (60 minutes):

The rising number of sexual assaults reported on campuses each year has led to an uptick in litigation brought by accused students, as well as an uptick in respondent-related OCR investigations. In this session, presenters will provide attendees with cutting-edge insight into the number and type of claims on which litigants have succeeded against institutions, as well as the frequency, cost and duration of OCR investigations. Weaved throughout the course, presenters will discuss helpful strategies for improving your institution’s response to sexual assault cases on campus, in litigation and during an OCR investigation.

Immigration Update (30 minutes):

Presenters will briefly update attendees on the Trump Administration’s Executive Order on immigration, as well as the legal fallout since the Order was signed on January 27, 2016. In this practical and interactive update, presenters will also offer guidance as to the effects of the immigration Order and subsequent court decisions on college campuses, and discuss best practices for navigating impacted immigration issues during these uncertain times.

This CYCLE by Saul Workshop will be led by Saul Ewing’s Higher Education Practice Co-Chair, James A. Keller and Vice Chair, Christina D. Riggs. Jim and Christina both specialize in defending colleges and universities and advising them on critical issues of compliance, policy, and liability.

Our CYCLE by Saul Workshop will be held at the University of Dayton, Kennedy Union – Room 310, 300 College Park, Dayton, Ohio. The Workshop will run from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. A cocktail reception for all attendees will follow the Workshop programming.

This program has been approved by the Ohio Continuing Legal Education Board as well as the Kentucky Continuing Education Board for 3 hours of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit and zero hours of ethics, professionalism or substance abuse CLE credit. ​ ​
