The Legal Aspects of TNE

23 Jan 2020, 10:00 - 15:00
Farrer & Co LLP
20-23 Lincoln's Inn Fields 
London 
WC2A 3LH

In 2017-18 UK universities reported students on TNE programmes in 225 locations, each with its own regulatory and legislative framework. Building capacity in the management of the regulatory aspects of TNE is key to the success of TNE partnerships and operations.


In this full-day event in partnership with law practice Farrer & Co we will explore the legal dimensions essential to successful TNE operations including contracting, HR and immigration, duty or care, equality and diversity, trademarks and IP, data protection, brand protection, taxation.

We will explore:


  • How recent legislative changes may affect your TNE provision
  • How your institution can conduct due diligence checks on TNE partners
  • Case studies of successful (and less successful) legal practice associated to TNE
  • Adapting swiftly to regulatory changes in the UK and beyond

Do you have an interesting case study to present? Please submit your session proposal here.
