Webinar: The Regulatory Landscape ‒ A Dynamic and Disruptive 12 Month

Duane Morris will present Boot Camp for Education Legal Leadership, Session 1: The Regulatory Landscape ‒ A Dynamic and Disruptive 12 Months, on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time/11:00 a.m. Pacific time.

The past 12 months have been one of the most active in recent memory for the U.S. Department of Education in publishing new regulations and issuing new policy guidance in the area of Title IV, Higher Education Act compliance. Join the Education Industry Group at Duane Morris for review and analysis of these developments and how they impact your institution, both now and in the near future.


Topics include:

    • Outcomes of the Department of Education’s negotiated rulemaking sessions that started in 2021 and concluded with Final Rules in 2022 and 2023.
    • A dive into the most impactful of the new regulations in the areas of: borrower defense to repayment, financial responsibility, gainful employment, financial value transparency, administrative capability and certification procedures, as well as how each of these rules affect all institutions, public, private, nonprofit and proprietary.
      The Biden administration’s progress to date on new 2023-2024 rulemaking topics and guidance, including: accreditation, state authorization, distance education, cash management, and Return to Title IV, plus an update on third-party servicer guidance reissuance expectations.
    • The Department of Education’s increasingly aggressive enforcement, fine, investigation and other tactics, and how to avoid – or mitigate damage of – being in the regulatory crosshairs.


About the Webinar Series

Being part of legal leadership at a college or university requires diverse skills and a broad knowledge of the law. The heavily regulated higher education landscape further requires counsel to stay ahead of complex and changing federal and state rules that affect everything from student life to financial aid and beyond. Join Duane Morris for the first session of our webinar series for legal leadership and general counsel on effective legal strategies to meet the critical challenges that institutions of higher education – public, private, large and small – all face in an increasingly strict regulatory environment. The pressure has never been greater than now as, in addition to regulatory concerns, educational institutions have to address the needs of different constituents: students, administrators, instructors and faculty, boards of trustees and alumni – all while under intense scrutiny to demonstrate value to the public.

Our seminar series is designed to help current and future legal leadership and general counsel in higher education understand the business and regulatory challenges in the industry – including an analysis of the Department of Education’s agenda – develop strategic plans that advance your institution’s goals.
