Education laws relate to how our schools operate. They cover matters like educational standards, school district and school board authority, student attendance, discipline, and dress code requirements.

Education lawyers also represent parents who have issues with their children's education. For example, if you think your child has been improperly suspended from school, an education lawyer will help you determine if challenging the suspension is within your legal rights.
