School law attorneys examine the contracts, rules, regulations and laws that control public education, including collective bargaining agreements, student codes of conduct, board of education policies, department of education regulations, state and federal statutes and constitutions, attorney general opinions and court opinions.

School law attorneys may address issues related to student speech, searches of students, student discipline, the separation of church and state, the education of children with disabilities, employment matters, discrimination, harassment, bullying and extracurriculars. School law attorneys may handle matters that arise in traditional public schools, charter schools, online schools, private schools, and with home-schooled students.
