Education attorneys likely did not spend their law school careers immersed in the study of psychology, counseling or other mental health fields.

Nonetheless, they are often tasked with addressing the complex intersection of human behavior and the law.

This program explores the nuances of mental health related laws as applied to higher education and school law, the practical side of managing student and employee behavior, and even the stress or other mental health struggles that attorneys might encounter themselves in their work.

This program includes topics of interest for both the junior education law attorney and the more seasoned practitioner.
