David Wolowitz to Speak on Protecting Students from Educator and Peer Sexual Misconduct

McLane Middleton attorney David Wolowitz will be speaking on “Protecting Students from Educator and Peer Sexual Misconduct” at The Association of Boarding Schools’ virtual 2020 Conference on December 7-10, 2020.

As part of this interactive workshop, panelists will explore evolving legal standards redefining a school’s current duty of care.  Attendees will participate in “hands on” exercises focused on steps schools can take to deter and respond to misconduct, from baseline standard of care to best practices including vulnerability audits, policy review, protective employment practices, and behavioral-based training.

David will be joined on the panel by Megan Mann of the National Association of Independent Schools and Constance Neary of United Educators.

David is a director at McLane Middleton and co-chair of the firm’s Education Law Group.  He advises independent schools nationwide and internationally on all aspects of risk avoidance and crisis management.  The focus of David’s practice is the reinforcing of healthy school cultures which promote child safeguarding.  David consults with schools on both prevention of and response to all types of educator misconduct. David also serves as an expert witness on the standard of care for child protection policies and practices in schools and youth-serving organizations, such as churches, camps, and athletic organizations.  David can be reached in the firm’s Portsmouth office at (603) 334-6923 or david.wolowitz@mclane.com.
