Susan Schorr to Speak at TABS/NAIS Global Symposium

McLane Middleton attorney Susan E. Schorr will be presenting at the TABS/NAIS Global Symposium on April 16, 2018 in New Orleans.

Susan’s presentation, “Things You May Not Have Thought of When Evaluating Host Families,” will address what happens when the values of international parents clash with your school or organization’s mission, especially as it focuses on tolerance and respect for cultural differences.  Whether attendees are an independent school sponsoring its own exchange students or an organization relied upon by schools to properly vet host families, prospective students and families may express placement preferences based on religious, sexual orientation, or other characteristics of host families.  This presentation will highlight the laws and regulations that should guide application and placement decisions, and recommend essential organizational policies.

Susan is an Of Counsel attorney at McLane Middleton.  She finds solutions to legal questions and challenges faced by independent schools and social service organizations, and conducts investigations when serious misconduct is alleged.  Grounded in thorough legal analysis, she offers practical advice and responsiveness.  With a background as a social worker and current trustee of several non-profit organizations herself, Susan approaches client challenges in a holistic and detail-oriented manner.

Susan can be reached in the firm’s Boston office at (781) 904-2715 or [email protected].
