Nolan Presents on Disability Law and Sexual Violence Issues

In October, 2013, Jeff Nolan of Dinse’s Higher Education Practice Group presented three sessions to a national-draw audience at the University of Vermont’s Legal Issues in Higher Education conference. Jeff did two presentations regarding how colleges and universities should respond to complaints of sexual violence on campus in light of the Campus SaVE Act (effective March, 2014), and one presentation regarding how institutions should work to accommodate students with autism spectrum disorders and other cognitive disabilities. In November, 2013, Jeff did a presentation at the University of New Hampshire for the Northern New England Chapter of the College and University Personnel Association regarding new issues that employers are likely to face given the expansion of mental disorders outlined in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (“DSM-5”).
