Legal Issues Impacting Greek Life – On-Demand Training

Sale price$399.00


Minimize Institutional Risk and Liability

The law, and cases that help define it, is ever-changing and few campus professionals have the time to remain current with the legal landscape of Greek Life. All of this is evidenced by the 13 states that have expanded their criminal hazing laws, organizations rescinding membership to trans-gender and non-binary members and as a result current members suing their organization, several men’s fraternities choosing to withdraw as university recognized organizations, ongoing First Amendment challenges, and the ever-shifting relationship between alumni housing corporations and undergraduate members who live in chapter facilities.

Gather key stakeholders on your campus as our expert presenter – Attorney and former national men’s fraternity CEO David Westol – outlines relevant case law and how current social issues are impacting the future of fraternal organizations. Having served as an expert witness in 28 cases involving national fraternities & sororities, he can help your institution proactively address these issues.

  • Minimize risk and institutional liability and promote student safety and success at your institution by addressing the need for harm reduction and hazing prevention.
