Legal Issues Facing Educators Today

As educational leaders we need to be aware of our expanding and more defined legal obligations, as well as the potential potholes. Districts sometime struggle to keep leaders abreast of current issues, until a problem develops. Suzanne will review with participants the most recent developments and discuss present legal trends in the education sector. Speaker Suzanne Kennedy is a partner with Harris & Co, Western Canada’s largest workplace law firm, and legal advisor to BC school districts. Suzanne has extensive experience in education and health law, and has represented various educational organizations, providing advice in a range of areas including employment, professional regulatory proceedings and compliance, court and administrative tribunal proceedings, procurement, and contract negotiations.
