The University of Vermont annually presents one of the nation’s premiere conferences.  This year the conference will be held on October 16 – 18, 2023, and will focus on the diverse legal issues impacting all aspects of higher education.  The program will feature leading experts in:

  • Higher Education Law
  • Student Affairs
  • Campus Public Safety
  • And much more

Through interactive sessions and panel discussions participants learn practical approaches to complex legal situations.

Individuals working in academic and administrative departments, as well as those working directly with legal issues, will offer diverse perspectives on the issues, including remote learning.
