Issues in Higher Education Webinar: Export Controls on Campus

April 19, 2016
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

All U.S. institutions of higher education and their faculty, staff and students must comply with U.S. export control laws, which regulate the release of goods, technology and services that affect U.S. national security and foreign policy interests. These regulations apply to university activities such as research; travel; joint collaborations with foreign universities; employment of foreign national faculty, staff and students; and transfers of controlled technology to shared servers. Given the array of potentially controlled actions, schools should be familiar with their obligations under the law.

Join Husch Blackwell attorneys for an informative webinar as we introduce and explain these regulations.
