The landscape for institutions of higher education is ever changing due to pressures facing both public and private universities, increasing cost pressures, globalization and evolving technology. Colleges and universities also face a wide range of legal issues, including real estate, employment, construction, litigation, bond financing, corporate and commercial transactions. In addition, they navigate areas of the law that are unique to this sector, such as extensive governmental, federal (e.g., Title IX) and state regulation. The right people are needed to face the challenges within this ever-changing landscape and meet the demand for skilled lawyers whose reach extends beyond the legal department and who can operate as partners with their university leadership.
