Colleges and Universities have recognized the value of providing legal assistance, representation, guidance and advice for their students. The typical college student body now includes more non-traditional students coming from all sorts of backgrounds and professional experience. The number of international students, as well as students with disabilities and/or pre-existing mental health concerns is also on the rise.


Today’s students have legal concerns such as matrimonial, tax, landlord/tenant, and contract issues as well as, criminal and quasi-criminal matters. Being cognizant of the diversity of the college student population, the wide variety of legal issues they face and the impact these issues have on their academic development is critical to attorneys providing legal assistance to this population.


This year’s presentation will provide attorneys with the tools necessary to become aware of the types of legal issues prevalent amongst college students and how to best provide them with legal assistance. More specifically, the discussion will include a focus on:

  • Proposed Changes in Title IX (Lowering Standard of Proof)
  • Changes to Student Conduct
  • Expansion of Attorney Advocacy Options as a Result of These Changes
  • How Attorneys Can Make Title IX and Student Conduct a Part of Their Practice

This program has been approved by the BCLE of the Supreme Court of NJ for 1.0 hour of total CLE credit (Recognized for NY CLE Credit).


Cost: Free (includes lunch & parking)
