The National Society for Experiential Education 

Present an Experiential Education Academy Workshop 

Legal Issues Workshop:    

This workshop examines the broad range of legal issues that arise in administering experiential learning programs, with particular emphasis on the reciprocal rights and responsibilities of the school, work-site, and student.  Key issues such as student, school and work-site liability, risk management (including waivers, assumption of risk and insurance), protecting and accommodating student rights (including discrimination and ADA compliance), tax and compensation consideration, contractual obligations, and issues arising out of the use of public funds,will be examined.  Time will be allotted for participants to engage in a discussion of these issues, as well as explore the application of legal issues to their specific programs in a “legal clinic” format.
