Most attorneys were captivated by the study of constitutional law in school, but education attorneys are fortunate enough to practice it on a day-to-day basis!

In the midst of social unrest, political uncertainty and viral forms of expression, understanding the parameters of the First Amendment is a vital skill for education law practitioners.

This program explores the various ways that First Amendment law governs the relationship between the school or university and its students, faculty, staff and boards.

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