Taft is a sponsor of NACUA's (the National Association of College and University Attorneys) Spring 2021 Virtual CLE workshop, "Higher Education Discrimination Law: Turbulence, Transitions, and Triumphs."
The past year has upended all aspects of higher education and required counsel to revise client advice on various matters, including those related to discrimination law. This virtual workshop will approach higher education discrimination law through the lens of a global pandemic, a nationwide racial reckoning, and unprecedented financial challenges. Against this backdrop, panelists will also discuss how anticipated regulatory changes and executive branch actions under the new presidential administration may impact higher education, and how evolving case law and the changing composition of the courts may influence institutional efforts to build and maintain diverse and inclusive communities.
