[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] : This shared workspace allows students to learn from and collaborate with practitioners in education law. Take the opportunity to seek perspectives and advice from professionals in this practice area.
Education law attorneys work for all types of employers: private law firms, public interest firms, advocacy groups, trade associations and governmental entities. They also represent a variety of clients, including parents, students, teachers, charter schools, school and community college districts and their elected boards, and any number of for-profit and/or nonprofit organizations that do business with educational institutions. Education law attorneys provide services in a broad range of areas including both transactional and litigation work, from civil rights to labor/employment to real property/construction to highly specialized work in areas such as special education. The common thread through all of the work education attorneys do is the opportunity to have a direct and positive impact on student access to educational opportunities as well as a positive impact on student achievement. This is an area of law that also offers lawyers a window into the world of politics and public policy and is a perfect path for attorneys with interests in those areas.
