Participation in athletics provides college and university students with rewarding opportunities to challenge themselves and test their physical limits. While these activities can enrich students’ college experiences, they can also lead to short-term and life-long injuries. In recent years, litigation by student athletes, primarily those participating in intercollegiate athletics, alleging institutional liability for sports injuries has increased. This webinar will look at the developing legal duties and liability standards, the enforceability of releases and other defenses, and suggested practices to help manage injury risks associated with athletics activities on your campus.
