Mary Beth Schluckebier

Associate

Mary Beth Schluckebier assists clients with complex commercial litigation matters, particularly institutions of higher education. Her work for colleges and universities includes defending and advising them on critical issues of compliance, policy and liability. Mary Beth has experience in large-scale government investigations and in proactive compliance reviews and audits involving the Clery Act, Title IX and Title IV. Mary Beth also has experience assisting with comprehensive policy reviews and revisions, First Amendment matters, and issues related to accreditation, financial aid, hazing, child abuse, sexual violence, student suicide, racial discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, gender identity discrimination, and immigration issues on campus.

In addition to her work in the higher education arena, Mary Beth has experience in white collar and government litigation in federal court, representing an educational company that contracted with the government and faced allegations of criminal fraud. Mary Beth also has experience representing a large insurance client in ERISA matters.

Mary Beth maintains an active pro bono practice, having recently partnered with The Public Interest Law Center to litigate and ultimately settle a case on behalf of Philadelphia community gardeners claiming rights to once-vacant land they had stewarded for over three decades by adverse possession. The settlement proceeds will be used to secure urban green space to create sustainable and equitable neighborhoods. Mary Beth also secured lawful status and work authorization for an immigrant client and survivor of domestic violence.
