Our education group provides risk management training for administrators, faculty and staff, health center staff and counselors, and students to help prepare them to address the myriad issues that arise during the daily routines at day and boarding schools.

Our attorneys create and tailor workshops to fit the unique needs or interests of the school and can be available at any time during the year, either in-person or via a remote platform, as training needs arise. Our trainings focus on student health and safety, such as preventing and responding to harassment, hazing, bullying, mandatory reporting obligations, student misuse of social media, substance use and abuse, and sexual misconduct.

We train school healthcare providers on high risk issues such as eating disorders, managing psychotropic medications, balancing the need for information sharing, and confidentiality and privacy protections.

We train school business officers and human resources personnel on avoiding wrongful discharge and discrimination claims, hiring to firing strategies, and conducting investigations. We also offer seminars and workshops for boards of trustees on non-profit governance.
