Emory employees invited to enroll in course on higher education law

Emory Report | Dec. 8, 2015

Emory Law invites Emory employees to enroll in Higher Education Law, which will be offered at the law school on Thursdays from 4:30 – 7:25 p.m. starting Jan. 7, 2016.

The deadline to apply for the course is Dec. 18. The semester-long class has been designed to expose students to a range of postsecondary administrative challenges that entail legal and ethical implications.

The course experiences should ultimately help current and prospective administrators to envision the legal dimensions of collegiate-level decision processes.

Among the topics to be discussed will be the basis from which higher education law originates, current (case, state and regulatory) law, as well as risk management and liability issues for higher education.

The course will be taught by Paul G. Fowler, executive director of the Emory Career Center. Grading criteria will include class participation, case briefs, class presentation, an outline paper and a case study/final exam.  

The course is eligible for the Emory courtesy scholarship
