Bullying can have profound and damaging effects on victims — the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identifies bullying as a major public health concern. Since 1999, 49 states and the District of Columbia have passed some form of anti-bullying legislation to reduce bullying behaviors among youth. This webinar examines the anti-bullying laws in two states: Oregon and Iowa. These states’ laws are the focus of two Public Health Law Research studies investigating the extent to which school districts have adopted anti-bullying policies in response to these laws, and the impact these policies may have on reducing bullying in schools. This webinar will focus on policy development and adoption and implementation of the laws, and will include lessons learned from the field as well as recent research results.
You may qualify for CLE credit. ASLME is an approved provider of continuing legal education credits in several states. ASLME will also apply for CLE credits in other states upon request.
