Of Counsel


Amy Fabiano is an experienced higher education attorney and a member of Bowditch’s Higher Education Group, which is part of the firm’s Employment & Labor practice. She counsels clients on the complex legal and compliance issues facing colleges, universities, and independent schools today in areas such as labor and employment, civil rights and Title IX, student and employee conduct, regulatory compliance, policy development and training, contract drafting and negotiations, faculty matters, sponsored research, study abroad, student affairs, FERPA, and board governance.

Before Bowditch

Prior to joining the firm, Amy was the Associate General Counsel at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) where she advised WPI administrators, faculty, and staff on legal issues and risk management, as well as negotiated contracts and drafted university policies. Amy also served as a Civil Rights Attorney within the United States Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) where she investigated and resolved more than 134 cases, including over 40 cases under Title IX.

Before her public service, Amy practiced at an AmLaw 200 firm and focused her pro bono practice on special education and school discipline laws for K-12 schools.

Besides Work

Amy enjoys spending time with her family and friends and can often be found chasing around her busy children or watching Jeopardy! with her husband. She is a proud Board Member of the Lexington Playcare Center and is an active volunteer with the Newton Public Schools.
