Reopening in the COVID-19 era: Liability and related legal considerations

As we approach the new academic year in the midst of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, colleges and universities are challenged to determine how they can reopen safely.

Schools, students, faculty, and staff are weighing the benefits of in-person instruction and campus life against public health and liability risks. Schools are also considering ways they can lawfully mitigate risks.

In this 60-minute webinar we discussed potential legal liabilities from reopening and possible mitigation measures.

Topics included:

  • The key vectors of legal liability risk associated with COVID-19.
  • The nature and extent of the potential liability.
  • What an institution can do to mitigate the risk.
