Brenda Ulrich presents as a panelist on a September 15th Boston Bar Association webinar entitled, “Unprecedented: Navigating New Legal Challenges for an Unusual Return to Campus.” The program, presented by the College & University Law Section, will cover three areas in which otherwise common issues take unusual twists in the COVID-era.
Brenda will address copyright questions related to the move to online learning – both in the virtual classroom and the virtual library. She will also discuss the software service contracts that accompany the transition to online learning, and the particular issues such contracts can raise for higher education institutions.
Brenda is joined by two other speakers Phil Catanzano and Gretchen Groggel Ralston. Phil will discuss unique issues relating to the types of disability accommodations being requested and the different ways that institutions are managing these issues. Gretchen will speak about transitioning a higher education institution to this new reality, with a particular focus on the challenges related to preserving clinical education and internship experiences for students across a range of academic programs.
