Education Law

Julie Risher’s experience as the longest serving General Counsel at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts helped her develop comprehensive and competent experience in higher education law, much of which also applies to secondary school law.

She is extremely well-versed in the application of FERPA (Family Education Rights and Privacy Act), educational institution liability and risk management issues, educational institutional policy development, Title IX and Title IX investigations, tenure denial proceedings, HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), general liability concerns, and campus police issues.
