Internships and other placements provide students with valuable opportunities to apply the theory and skills they learn in the classroom in a professional setting. Higher education institutions seek to provide, promote, and facilitate these arrangements while grappling with issues related to employment status, privacy, safety, and risk management. This webinar will explore institutional responsibilities and risks stemming from student internship and placement arrangements.
Topics will include:
- Employment status issues and an overview of recent case law
- General liability, internships abroad, international students, and student conduct issues
- Internship agreements, MOUs, and clinical affiliation agreements
This webinar will be of interest to attorneys who advise colleges and universities on employment law, student affairs and risk management matters and to administrators who work on facilitating student internships and placements domestically and abroad.
