Discovery: Atlantic Education & the Law – Issue 11
We are pleased to present the eleventh issue of Discovery, our very own legal publication targeted to educational institutions in Atlantic Canada.
With a new academic year well underway, the Atlantic Region is finally seeing signs of recovery from the pandemic. With students returning to campus and the focus shifting away from the impacts of COVID-19, a number of issues that were present before the pandemic continue to remain top of mind for academic institutions across the region.
In our eleventh issue of Discovery Magazine, Stewart McKelvey lawyers provide insight into a variety of timely issues including: the student housing crisis, the impact of processing backlogs on international students, academic copyright protection, and liability for privacy breaches.
