Each webinar will be hosted by Aaron Lacey and feature other Thompson Coburn practitioners who will share their unique experience and insights.

The first webinar, “Minimizing Litigation Risk As To Student-Related Disputes,” will focus on student litigation and feature Bill Bay and Jeff Fink, who have represented educational institutions facing lawsuits and arbitrations brought by former students, state attorneys general, and government regulatory agencies in multiple jurisdictions.
