Naomi Shatz Spotlights Communication Failures in School Disciplinary Procedures

Naomi Shatz (’08), Partner at Zalkind, Duncan & Bernstein LLP, was quoted in Sports Illustrated pointing to Stanford’s actions in the disciplinary process involving Katie Meyer as a reflection of “‘very common’ problems in school disciplinary systems,” citing case length and lack of communication (“Did Stanford Fail Katie Meyer?” Nov. 14). Questioning the timing of official notification sent by the school outside of business hours, Naomi advocated for certain in-person communications, which allow for gauging student reaction and providing immediate referrals to support resources.
