Higher Education Legal Briefing: Understanding and Complying with “Enough is Enough”
July 6, 2015
The New York State Legislature passed legislation imposing new requirements for institutional actions and responses to allegations of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking. The Governor has previously announced his support of the legislation and is expected to sign the bill into law expeditiously. The legislation will impose many new requirements on colleges and universities.
For more information about the legislation generally, please visit Bond's Higher Education Law Report.
Institutions will have to comply with virtually all of the provisions of the new legislation within 90 days of the bill’s passage. As a practical matter, however, institutions will want to bring their policies and practices into compliance in time for the start of the Fall semester. Institutions also will need to think through how this legislation works in conjunction with Title IX, the Clery Act, including the Violence Against Women Act, FERPA, as well as campus policies of general application. The briefings will help colleges and universities understand the specific steps they need to take to comply with this important new legislative development.
