Education law covers a wide breadth of issues, including board and committee governance, bylaws and policies, Department of Education covenants, vendor contracts, Cleary Act issues, faculty and staff issues, employment and disciplinary issues, taxable and tax-exempt financing for capital projects and investments, bonds and loan agreements, real estate acquisitions, zoning issues, and advising on various policies.
Our primary focus is on compliance and litigation avoidance. We are most helpful as your education counsel when we are fully informed and can be proactive in providing legal counsel to the administration and board and committee members. Our subject matter experience also includes the marketing, human resources, and financial aid departments. Our perspective and experience play an integral role in the successful management of your operations and the reputation of our client institutions.
While we usually represent institutions, we also have the background and understanding needed in education law to represent students and parents may have legal issues or situations with their colleges or university or K-12 school.
