Bill BerardAbout Bill Berard

William D. Berard, III, attorney at law, has been leading McGrath Programs since 1995 – including our sexual harassment and abuse awareness, complaint management and investigation programs, our bullying and harassment curriculum, and our programs for minimizing the risk of harm and liability in athletics and extracurricular activities.

He graduated summa cum laude in 1982 from Niagara University and from the University Buffalo Law School in 1985. He has been a practicing attorney in Niagara Falls, NY, for over 20 years, specializing in public education law and human resource issues. In addition to his private law practice, he serves as Assistant School District Attorney for the Lewiston-Porter Central School District, in Lewiston, New York.  He also served as Assistant School District Attorney for the City of Niagara Falls Public Schools from 1993-1998.

In 1999, Bill combined his lifelong passion for sports, his law degree and his experience as a McGrath Trainer into a rare specialty – Athletic Liability Training. He was a key player on the team that developed McGrath’s training programs and materials on this subject. Bill has coached a variety of sports programs throughout the years. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Niagara University where he teaches Human Resources Law and Negotiations courses. His combined expertise in coaching and sports law uniquely qualifies him as a trainer of K12, college and university athletic staff as well as professional sports organizations such as the Miami Dolphins and the Cleveland Browns.

Mr. Berard has been active in the Niagara Falls community throughout his life.  He has worked with the United Way of Greater Niagara since 1987, where he presently serves pro bono counsel, the Niagara Falls Boys and Girls Club and numerous other local groups.
