Online learning can increase accessibility for students, but it also presents significant challenges. In particular, students, educators, and administrators all struggle to address bullying and harassment when they move outside the traditional classroom. This trend has been developing for many years as students began using online applications, both school-sponsored and otherwise, but with the mass move online during the COVID pandemic, the legal issues surrounding online harassment are about to balloon, and the liabilities for educators could last many years.
This program will provide an overview of the harassment and free speech issues that can arise both in an online learning setting and in online communications among students that take place outside of school-sponsored forums. Presented by Samantha Harris, the program will benefit attorneys who represent students, teachers and faculty, administrators, and educational institutions at both the K-12 level, and at institutions of higher education.
"Presenter did an excellent job, using her materials as back up to her lecture and not simply reading from them as another presenter did. She also had excellent hypotheticals explained how the laws are to be applied. Excellent!" - Anne P.
"Very, very good presentation. An area of law that scares most of us. The presentation importantly points out the vast degree of complexity that cyber-environments are wedging into constitutional law and civil rights litigation considerations. The next client that wants to see me about a relevant case along these lines, I will go back and review this video before interviewing my client." - Craya C.

The abrupt move to distance learning has raised uncertainty about how Title IX cases will proceed in this new environment. In some instances, students were sent home from school while their Title IX cases were still ongoing, raising questions about how, and even whether, those cases would be resolved with everyone off-campus. And Title IX applies in the online learning context as well -- issues of online harassment in the distance-learning environment are already beginning to arise.
This on-demand video will provide an overview of the various issues for attorneys involved in handling both ongoing and new cases in this context.
