Course Description

Today’s tech savvy bully has the ability to leverage the connectedness of social media to harass their victim on a round the clock basis. This constant bombardment can cause permanent emotional damage to the victim. The parents of a bullying victim often feel powerless to protect their child.

This program, presented by David G.C. Arnold, Of Counsel to Robson & Robson, P.C. will discuss the current landscape of childhood bullying and the role of educational institutions in combating such behavior. The program, which is Part I of a two-part series, will also provide an overview of laws aimed at protecting children from bullying.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the current landscape of childhood bullying including the role of educational institutions and social media platforms in combating and/or enabling harassing behavior
  2. Grasp the role of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act in protecting children from bullying, and what services they provide for the victims of bullying
  3. Identify the strategies and the process for representing a victim of bullying
