Higher education in the crosshairs

Times have changed, and the once-untouchable higher education industry has been under unprecedented scrutiny by the government and the public alike.

From a widely publicized civil litigation to a criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), a U.S. Department of Education probe to a dicey faculty or student issue, Hogan Lovells has guided our clients through this evolving and challenging era.

In particular, we helped our large bench of university clients navigate the breaking “Varsity Blues” scandals by assessing their practices and responding to any threats facing them. Or when another high-profile case involving alleging race-based preferences at our Ivy League client arose, our White Collar, Education, and Appellate teams worked with the client respond to the DOJ’s investigation, review and strengthen its current policies and procedures, and develop a strategy for responding to press inquiries.
