NEW ORLEANS – Fisher & Phillips LLP announced today that Scott Schneider has been selected by the National Center for Campus Public Safety (NCCPS) to help develop and deliver a Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication training program for campus officials.
Schneider, a partner with the New Orleans office and chair of the Higher Education Practice Group, was selected to provide his insights on sexual and gender violence investigations, Title IX, and the Clery Act.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the NCCPS, and I am excited to have this opportunity to contribute my knowledge and experience to such an important cause,” said Schneider.
