With increasing frequency, Boards are finding themselves the target of legal actions.  Good governance and best practice, while not totally inoculating a Board from legal claims, can assist by providing an effective defense.  Boards that proactively address policies, procedures, and standards with special focus on good governance can limit potential liability.  Hear independent school lawyer Caryn Pass review the issues associated with good governance and describe the policies and procedures Boards should put into place to best protect trustees from liability.
