Education Law Handbook
The scope and function of the Education Law Committee is to bring together education law attorneys, as well as other attorneys that practice in education law-related areas, to review existing areas of education law, to study recent developments in this specialized area of practice of the law, and to keep the members of the bar informed of significant developments in this practice area. The committee is dedicated to having all new or current members, whatever their level of knowledge or expertise in education law may be, feel welcome and comfortable with participating in committee activities. The Committee will take an active role in communicating and articulating legislative changes, will publish a journal (newsletter), and will hold a regular annual seminar addressing education law issues. The Committee will meet at least three times a year for its business meetings and to study current areas and to share new information in this practice area. The Committee, in addition to the journal (newsletter) and annual seminar, will establish and maintain subcommittees, further research and study issues of specialized concern to this practice area. The Committee will bring together attorneys that practice education law in public and private universities, four-year colleges, community colleges, public and private schools, charter schools, deregulated schools, and other education law-related areas. The synergetic strength of the Committee will be a cross representation from all levels of education, public and private, and include attorneys that represent and/or defend actions in these arenas.
