This program, taught by the head of the Education Department at Mattleman, Weinroth & Miller, Jerry L. Tannenbaum, will help the viewer understand the complexities of the school bullying problem, the legal history, and the avenues of exposure for educational institutions.

The course will cover the differences in the law when the targeted child is a child with special needs, and/or when the bullying occurs because the targeted child belongs to an otherwise recognized protected class, such as race, ethnicity, disability or gender. The program will also discuss the different legal theories and litigation techniques available to students and parents, and the ways in which schools can act to mitigate their liability.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand the factors that lead to bullying in school, and ways to mitigate its harms
  2. Identify the avenues of redress for students and their parents
  3. Assess the mechanisms for schools to limit their liability in bullying cases
