Tree Assessment and Removal

Trees are an important and beautiful part of many college campuses, but they can damage property or cause personal injury. Liability arises when institutions are aware of sick or damaged trees in high risk areas and take no action or are unaware of risks because they do not conduct inspections.

Using Security Cameras and Closed Circuit TV on Campus

Installing security cameras and closed circuit television (CCTV) systems can raise privacy rights issues for students, employees, and visitors at educational institutions. These essential security tools can help institutions meet their legal duty to use reasonable care to protect the physical safety of those on campus. Surveillance systems can also deter crime and gather evidence to convict perpetrators.

Food Allergies in K-12 Schools

The number of children with food allergies increased by 50 percent between 1997 and 2011, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In addition, recent actions by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) signal increasing enforcement of federal laws that prohibit discrimination against people with food allergies. K-12 schools should update their food allergy policies and procedures to ensure student safety and comply with evolving legal requirements.
