LGBTQ+ Rights in Schools, Colleges, and Universities

Lawsuit threats, raucous board meetings, and unwelcome media scrutiny—schools, colleges, and universities across the country are in the crosshairs regarding the ever-changing legal landscape for student and employee rights with respect to LGBTQ+ individuals. Join Franczek P.C. Higher Education Group Co-Chair Jennifer Smith and Franczek partners Nicki Bazer and Kendra Yoch for a fast-paced discussion regarding your many questions on this important topic. Issues addressed will include current legal protections for LGBTQ+ individuals in the workplace and the classroom, school authority to limit speech that straddles the line between free speech and LGBTQ+ harassment, and LGBTQ+ participation in athletics.
