Rape on Campus: Legal Pitfalls Administrators Need to Avoid

Perhaps the biggest problem currently facing colleges is how to better deal with rapes that occur at frat parties, in dorms and all over campus. Unfortunately, colleges are failing miserably at knowing how to prevent such rapes from occurring and failing at properly responding when it does happen. Mistakes that college administrators make with regard to this can lead to significant liability on campus for colleges.

Please join Melissa Fleischer as she helps college administrators to better understand the potential legal liability that can come from failing to properly respond to sexual assaults on campus.
