Event Description

Have you ever Considered Drafting your Educational E-mails Carefully? Learn How to Draft them carefully So as to Avoid Liability under Federal and State Laws.

E-mails have made things much more streamlined today, even in the area of education where students and parents communicate with school staff via e-mails for various reasons at the front. Under Federal and State law, such e-mails may be considered educational records that a parent or student in entitled to see, and such records can be ordered to be produced in other litigation contexts. Thus, it is important to carefully draft e-mails which can otherwise lead to potential liability. Emails can also be used to carefully create a record of events and even limit/extinguish liability in certain cases.
