Education lawyers represent school districts and school boards in disputes with students, teachers, and parents, and they also help parents who have issues with their child’s education. If you believe a school has violated your rights regarding your child's disabilities, or your child has been bullied or unfairly disciplined, then you need an attorney experienced in the legal system's application to schools. Your attorney will understand your school district’s law and evaluate your legal choices and advise you on the best strategy to take.
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. An education lawyer advises school districts and school boards and represents them in disputes with students, teachers, and parents. 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.
