When is your organization liable for acts undertaken 10 years ago? What do you need to consider when advancing or defending a claim for historical abuse? Understanding the law of limitations is difficult. Being confident about where and when your organization’s liability begins and ends when managing a sexual assault claim is even more difficult, especially as many claims are allegations of historical abuse. But, limitation periods make or break claims, so it is essential for professionals working in the area to understand the issue and how it impacts record keeping and internal policy.

Ms. Grace will provide guidance on how to navigate this difficult and critical area.

  • How the law of limitations is evolving:
    • where the law stands
    • an overview of recent important decisions
    • impact of recent changes to legislation governing sexual assault claims – what you need to know
  • Legal protections available to institutions to thwart limitations claims
  • Understanding historical assault allegations
