June 17: Even before the onset of COVID-19, higher education institutions had generally been facing increased litigation activity, regulatory scrutiny, employment issues, and financial pressure due to decreased enrollment, while taking on more complicated and sophisticated financial transactions. COVID-19 has exacerbated these problems and brought on new ones such as negatively impacting endowments and investments in a material way and the onset of class action lawsuits relating to tuition refunds and other matters. To that end, Orrick’s Higher Education Focus Group, has assembled a panel for a special Orrick and Bond Buyer hosted webinar to both provide some market intelligence and educate higher education institutions on some of our thinking on these problems.
