Welcome to our third edition of The Academic Advisor - our e-newsletter focused on education law insights. As fall semester begins, your schools and campuses are no doubt bustling with orientation, move-in, training, and student activities. We wish you a successful start to the academic year, and hope that this publication can provide a source of relevant and useful information as you navigate the ongoing changes in education law.
Our third edition features articles discussing the College Athlete Bill of Rights reintroduced in Congress; possible expansion of the Clery Act to require disclosures of harmful accidents; new guidance from the U.S. Department of Education to support students with disabilities in student discipline processes; college affirmative action cases under review by the U.S. Supreme Court; Title IX guidance blocked by a recent federal court decision; a new FBI alert related to stolen academic credentials; and state law challenges to schools' use of facial recognition software.
