Drafting and Auditing Student Handbooks

Student handbooks currently figure into a startling amount of litigation. In a recent decision, the California Court of Appeal set aside the defendant-college’s Title IX sexual-assault determination and sanctions, because the school failed to follow the procedures published in its student handbook.

The student handbook is a crucial piece of the contractual relationship between the institution and its students. Depending on how effectively the document is crafted; how well the institution’s faculty and staff are trained to use it; and how thoroughly it is integrated into the campus culture, it can be a trap that ensnares the institution in a costly legal net or it can be a shield that protects the school, its trustees, officers and employees from lawsuits and publicity debacles.
